Nancy Shakespeare, Author of Rory's Golden Wing Adventure, The Tiny Princess and the Missing Chocolates and the Benjamin the Bear picture book series, lives in Katy Texas with her husband, Shaky and their 3 children - Benjamin, Tatum and Oliver.
Both the Benjamin the Bear series and The Tiny Princess were written about her own children and chronicle various activities and special life events most 2 - 6 year olds will experience. Nancy published for the first in 2013, however she has been actively pursuing her writing career for a decade. She is an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and the National Association for Women Entrepreneurs. Nancy is a graduate of Southern Methodist University. When not reading, presenting, teaching or speaking, you can find her entertaining her three children or taxing them all over town for their many activities. She really is a "Shakespeare" and she has her English husband, Steve, to thank for their famous last name!

Each opportunity I have to put my thoughts down on paper, I can feel the stress fading away! The obstacles become creative tools that inspire me to be a positive role model for those in need.
Giving of yourself without expectation of reward is the best present you'll ever receive. And when the accolades do come, please allow yourself a smile. You should feel proud of your selflessness!
