Nancy LaPonzina

… writing women's fiction with a dollop of archaeology, the metaphysical, and alternative healing modalities

2013 Chatelaine Awards Finalist!


Ahhhh! if you follow my blog, you all know how I love the writing life … everything about it! The research, the delicious plots and characters to delight in at will, learning about process, and sharing words, ideas, and encouragement with my writing friends and groups. Well, I was living my writing life when, to use a popular English adjective much like “brilliant,” I was “gobsmacked!” It’s a good thing from what I can tell and it’s being completely and unexpectedly confronted by some extraordinary happening!

I am gobsmacked! My latest release, A Path Through the Garden, the Nardi Point sequel, has been named a Finalist by Chanticleer Book Reviews & Media  2013 Chatelaine Awards for romantic fiction. The contest is ongoing, but I’m so excited to be included in their Finalists list.

Thank you Chanticleer and congrats to all the authors making the list! We have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!
