Nancy Shattuck was inspired to write a historical fiction series when she discovered her direct ancestors had lived through King Philip’s Indian War in 1675-1676. Exploring their history, she was so impressed by the complexity of the colonial experience that each family member began to tell a different story. No longer a novel, the “chronicles” were born. Nancy earned a master’s degree in Comparative and Japanese Literature at Washington University (WU) in St. Louis and completed the classwork for two separate doctorates, in Comparative Literature at WU and American Literature at Wayne State University. Previous publications include a children’s fable, "The Fishers," and a travel memoir, "Travel Wings: An Adventure," in addition to short stories and poetry. She is the recipient of an American Academy of Poets award, Tompkins awards for poetry and fiction, a John Clare award for poetry, a Judith Siegel Pearson’s award for poetry, and a Heck-Rabbi award for drama. The second and third novels of The Watertown Chronicles will be released in 2021 by the Ardent Writer Press.Read more Read less
