Nancy Crochiere has been a writer and editor since before the earth started to cool. Her humorous essays have appeared in The Boston Globe and Writer’s Digest. She is currently working on her first novel, Graceland.
For years Nancy led a double-life: by day, she worked as a development editor and manager for various educational publishers; by night (and weekend) she wrote a humor column for The Daily News of Newburyport, Massachusetts, and North Andover’s Eagle-Tribune. In 2014, she collected her most popular columns into a book titled The Mother Load. The book was a finalist for Foreword Reviews’ Book of the Year in humor and the Independent Publishers of New England 2014 Book Award.
In a previous life, Nancy also wrote stories for a children’s detective series and freelance articles for national and local magazines and newspapers. She first realized her talent for writing fiction while penning highly creative notes excusing her daughters for being tardy to school.
Her daughters grown, Nancy now lives north of Boston with her husband, Paul, and a few houseplants. In her spare time, she acts as an “extra” in feature films. You can see her unapologetically staring at Bradley Cooper’s backside in the movie Joy.
