Nancy Woodbridge on Writing as a Form of Self-Expression

As a daughter of an artist and poet, Nancy Garfield Woodbridge started writing at an early age. In fact, she wrote her first novel at the tender age of eight. Over the years, Nancy has viewed writing as an artistic expression and an impulse that prompts proper action.

Nancy has already published her works under traditional publishers in the past, namely, her children’s books The Tuesday Elephant and The Dancing Monkey, which were both well received. As children’s books are Nancy’s chosen niche, she later enrolled at the Institute for Children’s Literature where she learned more valuable things and began working on a few more manuscripts.
