Nancy VanArsdall

Welcome to author Nancy VanArsdall’s website!

Nancy VanArsdall always wanted to be an authoress and wrote her first five-chapter book at age ten. The Secret of the White Carnation (inspired by Nancy Drew) sadly was lost among the attic dustbunnies as was her aspiration, for all too soon, she surrendered to the social norms of her time: marriage and motherhood…until the years when those traditional norms began to be questioned and eventually, for her, unraveled.
