About Me

Nancy M. Wade

Author and Copy Editor

Books, libraries, old movies... is there anything better for great entertainment?  I don't think so.  I've spent my life with my nose in a book or plinking on my keyboard writing my own stories. 

I’m married and have two sons and two stepdaughters with five grandchildren. Now my husband and I have begun a new chapter of our lives by living our retirement dream in the hills of Tennessee, where my husband’s ancestors once hailed. We love the more moderate climate and the friendly atmosphere of the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains. I am currently enrolled at the East Tennessee State University to finish my Bachelor's degree, concentrating in English and Film History. I am an active member of the local Lost State Writer’s Guild of Tri-Cities, TN.

My works of fiction are romances sprinkled with some historical facts and suspense. My novel, Reflections – A Sentimental Journey, is a fictional biography inspired by the early courtship and life of my parents, enduring the Great Depression and the early years of World War II. Frontier Heart is an action packed historical romance set in Colonial America. Moment in Timecontinues the family saga and mysteries started in Endless Circle with tales of the Circle-D Saga and generations of the Dunlap and Hartman families spanning from the late 1890s to World War II to modern day. A third book in the Circle-D Saga is underway - Gun For Hire will explore the life of Cody Jarvis: gunslinger and man of mystery during the wild, rough years of the Wyoming Territory. Watch for the release of this new edition in 2022.

Meadowood Mysteries is a cozy mystery series set in a small Midwest town.  Its first book titled Scarecrows and Corpses is followed by the second story in the series: Reunion with Death. Look for more of this  fun cozy mystery series with Deadly Bones coming in 2022!

Lost State Writers Guild

I am a member of a local Tri-City and Tri-State writer's guild called the LOST STATE WRITERS GUILD. The Lost State refers to the original State of Franklin, TN. Our members reside between the Tri-City areas of Bristol, TN/VA, Johnson City, TN and Kingsport,TN but we also have members in North Carolina and Virginia cities since our state borders on these Appalachian regions too. We are starting an exciting year of fun activities, workshops, educational opportunities and support for all of our members and invite anyone with a desire to explore their writing creativity to join our guild. Our members dabble in all kinds of writing: poetry, non-fiction, Appalachian stories, fictional novels including romance, mystery, horror, fantasy and more, plus children's stories and even song writing.

Our guild has been in existence for over 25 years and has an interesting history of how the name came to be.

History tells the tale of courageous settlers who came to stake a claim in this new frontier on the western side of the Appalachian Mountains.  A group of a few hundred brave men crossed at Sycamore Shoals in 1780 on their way to fight and win the Battle of Kings Mountain against the British Army during the Revolutionary War.

In 1784 a group of settlers met in Jonesborough, Tennessee, to form a new state which they called the State of Franklin, named for Benjamin Franklin. The new United States government did not want Franklin to be a state. They thought this land should stay part of North Carolina. In 1790 the U. S. government dissolved the State of Franklin which became known as the "Lost State of Franklin". Then, on June 1, 1796, the Lost State of Franklin was incorporated into the newly formed state of Tennessee rather than North Carolina.   So now you know!
