Nancy Star

Nancy Star is the author of four novels: Carpool Diem, Up Next, Now This and Buried Lives. Her very first published book was a travel guide about tipping around the world called, The International Guide to Tipping. That was long enough ago that she now promises you know as much on that subject as she does.

Her books have been translated into French, Japanese, German and Dutch. Her first novel, Buried Lives, was optioned for TV, and she hasnt given up hope that someday some smart TV producer will actually adapt it for the screen.

In addition to her adult novels, Nancy is the author of an eight-book childrens mystery series for young readers called The Calendar Club, published by Scholastic Books. As a childrens book writer she has been delighted to discover that young readers, in fact entire classrooms of young readers, love to write letters to their favorite authors telling them exactly what they think about the books.

Nancy Star recommends
Wish Me Home (2017)
Kay Bratt
"With its resilient protagonist, secret that kept me guessing, dog I wish I could adopt in real life, and story that tugged at my heart, Kay Bratt’s Wish Me Home grabbed me and held me all the way to its heartfelt resolution."
Tips for Living (2018)
Renée Shafransky
"In Tips for Living, Renée Shafransky proves herself to be a terrific storyteller. In addition to perfect pacing and edge-of-the seat suspense, the story has a genuinely appealing narrator whose humor and smarts grabbed me from the start and never let me go. The minute I finished I wanted more!"
Matchmaking for Beginners (2018)
Maddie Dawson
"This is a story of love: both unrequited and reciprocated romantic love, and the sweet love of a friendship that forms between two women at opposite ends of their lives. It’s a gem of a book, written with warmth, humor, and suspense, a testament to the truth that love is everything."
