About Nancy

Hi! I'm Canadian-born, but have lived in Switzerland for a looong time. The idea at first was to work here for a couple of years, so I could travel more easily around Europe. The problem was, I grew to like it here so much, that I decided to stay! Guess that's why I go a little overboard when I post about recent trips and so on. I don't know which I love more . . . reading or writing. I'm quite addicted to both, for sure. Have a sunshine-filled day!

Nancy Ellen’s latest novel ….

RUBY LOVE whisks the reader off to Switzerland, where Alice leads a hectic, often amusing life. Her story is a colourfully woven tapestry of magic, romance, faith and love.

On her thirteenth birthday, Alice receives a gem, which she secretly names ‘Ruby’. Legend says that Ruby will bring happiness to her owner…and indeed… Alice couldn’t imagine being happier or more satisfied with her life.

On Alice’s thirty-second birthday, her friends invite her to the ‘Chevalier Noir’, a strip club . . . and hit happens to be Ladies’ Night! That night, something happens that changes the course of her life forever. She finds the love of her life and discovers the true meaning of happiness.

When Ruby is taken from her, Alice’s and her new husband’s life take a serious turn for the worse. She is in for the fight of her life. Against all odds, Alice reaches deep into her soul to summon the courage and strength necessary for her to attempt to save her marriage and recover her precious friend Ruby.

With the help of her many friends–from quirky to motherly–and close family, her story is brought to life in sensual detail. RUBY LOVE is a character-driven tale with a strong paranormal thread that women everywhere will enjoy.

My novel: ANYTHING for Anna!

Hey folks! My new novel is available on Amazon: Unknown

Swiss Magic! . . . Karyn’s story whisks the reader away to beautiful Switzerland. Hectic, oftentimes funny everyday life; romance, different kinds of love, fantasy . . . and an essential touch of magic, are all brought colorfully to life in sensual detail. An inspirational story of courage, faith and love . . . Ontario-Born Karyn Simpson lost her husband nearly a year ago. Simply making it through each day, one lonely step at a time, has been an enormous challenge. While dealing with her own grief, she has had to shoulder all the responsibilities that go with raising two young children on her own. Fortunately, she has solid support from caring work colleagues and neighbors. She has another source of support, too—her own special secret. It is a legendary place that she often visits. It is said to bestow its restoring energies upon certain people, who are capable of receiving and absorbing them. Karyn is one of those fortunate people. Her first year of widowhood is coming to an end, when one chilly December morning, she meets Anna at the neighborhood kiosk. They have known each other casually over the years. Karyn discovers that Anna is gravely ill and vows to do everything she can to help lighten Anna’s load. The two young women soon become close friends. It breaks Karyn’s heart to see her friend suffer through the treatments necessary to combat her illness; especially since there are no guarantees that the treatments will even be effective! If only Karyn could do more for Anna than simply be her friend! When she discovers she has a gift of healing powers, she struggles desperately to understand those powers better, to use them to save her dear friend’s life. Karyn must embrace her power and the loneliness that accompanies it.
