New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nan Rossiter loves to weave together stories about the complicated relationships to which all readers can relate — motherhood, sisterhood, friendship, marriage, and romance.
She draws from her own life experiences to create authentic situations that mirror the trials and triumphs we all face. Compassionate, real, and funny, her books take readers on emotional journeys that often include heartbreak and joy, but also include threads of faith, a furry friend or two, and an uplifting ending. Nan's books have been highly acclaimed by reviewers from Publisher's Weekly to Booklist. Her novel, Summer Dance, was the 2018 winner of the Nancy Pearl Award.
Nan is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and began her writing career in the world of children's books. Along with her many contemporary fiction novels, she is the author/illustrator of Rugby & Rosie, winner of Nebraska's Golden Sower Award; The Way Home, Sugar on Snow, and The Fo'c'sle: Henry Beston's Outermost House.
Nan lives on a quiet country road in Connecticut with her husband and a solemn black lab named Finn, who diligently watches her every move and can be roused from a slumber in a distant room by the sound of a banana being peeled or a cookie crumb hitting the floor. Nan and her husband are the parents of two handsome sons who have struck out on life journeys of their own.
