Nancy Northcott's childhood ambition was to grow up and become Wonder Woman. Around fourth grade, she realized it was too late to acquire Amazon genes, but she still loved comic books, science fiction, fantasy and YA romance. As a history major at Davidson College, she spent a summer studying Tudor and Stuart England at Oxford University.

Nancy became an attorney but eventually realized her internal super heroine needed more room to play. She left the legal profession to teach at the college level and to write freelance articles and novels, most recently blending her extensive knowledge of fantasy into her own stories. A sucker for fast action and wrenching emotion, Nancy combines the romance and high stakes she loves in her new contemporary mage series.

Married since 1987, she considers herself lucky to have found a man who not only enjoys a good adventure story but doesn't mind carrying home a suitcase full of research books. Nancy and her husband live in North Carolina and have one son, who also likes a good adventure story.

Nancy Northcott is a RWA Golden Heart finalist. Renegade is her debut novel.

  • "4 Stars! Book one of The Protectors is a paranormal romance debut novel that readers will not soon forget. In an inventive turn, Northcott chooses to focus on magic and demons instead of the typical, run-of-the-mill vampires and werewolves plot. The characters take an emotional roller-coaster ride throughout the book - but the excitement doesn't stop there. Action and strong fantasy elements are just two of the ingredients that make this book an out-of-this-world read."
