About Nancy Tandon
Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I write picture books and middle grade novels, and love to share all kinds of stories for young people with others. I live in New England with my husband and two children, and am a member of the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). I have worked as an elementary school teacher, a speech-language pathologist, and an adjunct professor of Phonetics and Child Language Development. So far, writing is my favorite!
When I was in fifth grade, my school ran a program where students could have their stories published, complete with wallpaper remnant covers. Through this, my first three picture books were born. Around the same time, I broke my leg and received a blank journal from my parents as a get-well gift. In it, I wrote my first novel, THE TOMATO FAMILY, which was not-so-loosely based on the works of Lois Lenski,who was and is my favorite author.
These days, I’m drawing on all my past experiences and working hard to create memorable stories that will both educate and entertain future readers. I hope you’ll be one of them!
