THE BLACK COUNTRY CHRONICLES
NANCY CARSON
I was born and bred in the Black Country, that part of the West Midlands that lies between the eastern fringes of Wolverhampton and the western edges of Birmingham. Dudley was my home town and though I’ve travelled widely, I still live no more than 6 miles from my birthplace. Socially, I was always interested in the opposite sex, and loved to go out with my friends to dances, and to concerts by famous rock and pop groups. I married in my early twenties and had a son, but that marriage ended – amicably. My second marriage blessed me with a wonderful spouse and a ready-made stepson whom I adore. I always knew I would become an author, but there never seemed any rush. Throughout life I have been a ‘people-watcher’, and I believe this has given me a clear insight into human interactions – male and female – especially when it comes to relationships. So, my stories spring from the broad canvas of human nature. The characters that populate them have often been inspired from life, as have the situations I sometimes place them in. Many have been embellished, some not. The very first novel I wrote, which I thought was the best thing since sliced bread, had multiple rejections, simply because it was not good enough. However, undaunted and with the encouragement of several editors, literary agents, and the Romantic Novelists’ Association, I pressed on with new ideas and honed my craft. I have since written several novels with plans and outlines for more. Writing is a very fulfilling and yet solitary occupation, so I am lucky inasmuch as I still find time to enjoy other things with my very understanding better half, and lead a full and active life. Anyway, I do hope you’ll read my novels and that you’ll enjoy them as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.
