About Nancy LiPetri (Charlotte, North Carolina Author)
Originally from Iowa, Nancy has lived on both coasts and a few places in between. For over a decade, her home was the Lake Norman community in North Carolina, just north of Charlotte, and you'll learn much about the popular tourist area in her books.
In fact, she makes Lake Norman itself a main character in The Wooded Path (to be re-released 2019 by Whiskey Creek/Torrid), its seasons and natural features affecting the mood of each chapter and playing a big part in the mysterious disappearance that ties characters together.
In the sequel, Across the Lake (to be released 2019 by Whiskey Creek/Torrid), the character you least expect to return is back to try living life a whole new way. That story takes readers to the NC Outer Banks as well as to Lake Norman.
Herself a fan of contemporary fiction that's provocative and sometimes edgy, she enjoys entertaining readers with a fast-paced story that explores psychological drama, marriage, infidelity, friendship dynamics and self discovery.
