BOOKS

Nancy Grant’s newest book will be published in late spring 2019. In this well-paced travel narrative, readers will enjoy being directly on the scene as Nancy looks for birds in a variety of habitats in six states during a road trip of nearly 4,000 miles. Readers who come along for the ride during a journey from the Ohio River Valley all the way down the Texas Gulf Coast will experience the thrill of discovery–and pick up fresh ideas for enjoying the outdoors in any season. To receive further details about the book’s publication date and title, please send an email to nsgrant@bellsouth.netBe assured, your email info will not be shared or used for any other purpose.

This new book is the first in a planned series that will combine natural history insights with adventure anecdotes presented in a friendly, conversational style. Additional books will follow at twelve- to eighteen-month intervals.

Grant says, “Writing books is long, intensive process. Every book presents its own challenges in time management to gather research, organize the flow of ideas, then write and polish the text. The reward for months of concentrated effort is when the book is in print—and I get to chat with readers at book signings and other meet-and-greet events.”

Nancy Grant is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors.

Grant’s previous books were written at the request of the publishers according to their specifications. In 2008, drawing on her background as an expert in the electric utility industry, she wrote the Pocket Idiot’s Guide to Your Carbon Footprint in the popular series of quick reference books from a division of Penguin. Grant also wrote the science and technology sections of Frozen State, a book about the catastrophic 2009 ice storm and the recovery efforts to restore power after Kentucky’s most extensive natural disaster.

During the early 1990s Grant wrote two photo essay books published by a division of Random House and contributed to a compendium of writing advice published by HarperCollins.

Although these older books are now out of print, they’re often available on secondary markets. To read a description of the books listed below, simply click on the title to find information from press releases and jacket blurbs when they were originally published.
