Nancy Peacock’s path to becoming a successful writer wasn’t normal but it was fun. She got interested in writing in the 4th grade when a teacher introduced her to the arts.
"I loved books," she said. "I loved storytelling, but I didn't know that was something that adults actually did."
She skipped college, choosing instead to marry her high school sweetheart.
“Certainly by not going to college, I had to work. I was sort of thrown into the work-a-day world,” she said.
