Nancy says, “Writing books is a 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.”

Since launching the book in early May at the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge near Toledo, Ohio, Nancy’s been on the road throughout the region to autograph books and talk about birds with readers at special events in Kentucky, Indiana, and other states. Amazon buyers are posting five-star reviews of the book, and including comments ranging from “fun and informative ,” to “lyrical descriptions of the natural landscapes,” and noting that “her observations swept me along and expanded my knowledge about many species.”

Nancy chats about her travels and birdwatching lore with host Mardi Dickinson on the international podcast, during the August 28, 2019 episode.

Nancy will be a featured author at the Kentucky Book Fair in Lexington, Kentucky, on November 16, 2019.

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.
