Nancy Koziol was born and raised in the shadow of the greatest city in the world, New York. She was an imaginative child creating stories from the time she was able to talk. Nancy never went to bed without a flashlight, legal pad and pencil. For a time she dabbled in recording herself pretending to be a radio dj, but she missed the scritch-scratch of pencil on paper. She was the kid who preferred reading to television and spent countless hours exploring on foot and her bike. The youngest of three and a latch-key child she had plenty of time to be up to no good and that scrappy kid thinking up terrible and dangerous ideas can still be found in her eyes.
Nancy has a degree in English from Siena College where she also earned her New York State teaching certification. Nancy went on to teach English, Social Studies and Reading in Brooklyn, NY and Bennington, VT. She then ended up in Ann Arbor, MI working as a legal and contractual advocate for the Michigan Education Association. Nancy has amassed a collection of stories you wouldn’t believe from that adventure. She has also been a country club cocktail waitress and professional pianist.
In 2014, Nancy asked her husband how he’d feel if she quit her job with the MEA, tried her hand at freelance writing and they moved back to Vermont. His answer was to ask when he could start packing. They live in Bennington, VT with two dogs, a cat and a lot of booze. When Nancy’s not writing she and Kris can be found playing outside with the dogs, listening to vinyl and reading or traveling the world. They especially love trips to see the world’s best live band, My Morning Jacket.
