Bestselling author Nancy Bush has had an eclectic writing career. She started her first story when she heard how young mothers were making money writing romance novels. She thought, 'I can do that,' and talked her sister, bestselling author, Lisa Jackson, into joining her in her foray into writing. "
"Nancy began her career in the romance genre, writing both contemporary and historical novels, but being a mystery buff, she kept trying to add suspense into the plot, as much as her editors would allow. In 2002 she was chosen by ABC Television to be part of a writing group 'think tank' which was tasked with developing story for ABC's daytime dramas. She was one of two people selected from that group to actually become a breakdown writer for, at the time, one of ABC's top-rated daytime shows: All My Children. Nancy made the move to New York to join the AMC team while she was writing for the soap. That was an experience, she admits. Ask her, and she'll swear that the pressure cooker of delivering story every day - lots and lots of story -- helped focus her writing. "
"When Nancy returned to her home state of Oregon she channeled that newfound energy into writing the kind of books she's always loved: mysteries. She is the author of the gripping mystery novels Nowhere to Run, Nowhere to Huide, Nowhere Safe, You Can't Escape and I'll Find You. Like her sister Lisa, she's now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, both in her co-writing ventures and on her own merits as well.
