Nancy Fairbanks


A pseudonym used by Nancy Herndon

Nancy Fairbanks Herndon was born and brought up in the St. Louis area, took bachelors degrees in English and Journalism from the University of Missouri, Columbia, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, an event almost as exciting and astonishing as the news, delivered by phone early one morning when she had been fast asleep, that her first book had been accepted for publication. She followed those two degrees with a Masters from Rice University, plus some doctoral work in English at New York University.

She held low-paying and not terribly interesting jobs as a typist, sales clerk, proofreader, and advertising copywriter, and then almost as low-paying but much more interesting jobs as a lecturer in English at Rice, NYU, University of Mississippi, Florida Atlantic University and University of Texas at El Paso. In 1989 her first historical romance, Wanton Angel, was published.

Genres: Cozy Mystery
