Speaker Introduction

As a registered nurse, Nancy J. Cohen helped people with their physical aches and pains, but she longed to soothe their troubles in a different way. The siren call of storytelling lured her from nursing into the exciting world of fiction. Unable to wield a hair dryer or curling iron without risking bodily harm, she created hairdresser Marla Shore as a stylist with a nose for crime and a knack for exposing people’s secrets. Nancy is also the author of Writing the Cozy Mystery, a valuable instructional guide on how to write a winning whodunit. Her imaginative romances, including the Drift Lords series, have proven popular with fans as well. When not busy writing, Nancy enjoys fine dining, cruising, visiting Disney World, and outlet shopping, plus frequent visits to the salon for research. Currently, she is serving as President of the Mystery Writers of America Florida Chapter. Visit her at NancyJCohen.com
