Nancy Northcott

After practicing law for 18 years, Nancy Northcott decided she’d spent enough time in pinstripes and mothballed her law license to become a writer. She made her first sale, a paranormal romance series to Hachette/Grand Central, in 2012. Along the way, Nancy put her lifelong love of comic books, SFF, and history to use by teaching courses on Science Fiction, Fantasy & Society, The 1920s, and Landmarks in American Law at UNC Charlotte. She has presented workshops on writing to RWA chapters and at the RWA national conference and delivered a paper on the evolving relationship of Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon at Bowling Green State University’s Batman in Popular Culture conference.

Nancy now writes historical fantasy for Falstaff books and serves as Comics Track Director for Con-Tinual. In addition, she independently publishes romance and collaborates with Jeanne Adams on the Outcast Station science fiction adventure series. Her website is
