Here’s a bit about my life…


Nancy Thompson, Photographer

I am a wife, mother, daughter, and writer.  I am also a woman of faith.

I live in southern California with my husband and our children.  I love to entertain and work in my garden, play golf and tennis, and ski – water and snow.  I also enjoy spectator sports, especially watching my teenagers participate in their team sports.  I love spending time with my family and friends!

I’ve been known to cry at movies, laugh at silly jokes, and pause to admire a spectacular sunset.

My first attempt at self-publishing, a construction-paper booklet bound with ribbon, was a collection of poems I wrote for my grandmother, Pauline Hovarter.  I was in grade school at the time.

I have always enjoyed reading and writing.

My passion for writing led me to join the Blogging Team at Saddleback Church in Southern California where I researched and wrote for the Women’s Ministry and the Internet Campus.  I currently write for the Storyteller’s Ministry at Saddleback.  In addition to participating in on-campus studies, I assisted in the design and piloting of a Family Life Connection Group bible study, and served as a Small Group leader.  I am also a contributing writer for The Orange County Register.

I was born and raised in the Hoosier state!  I earned my bachelor’s degree in Business from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.  I am currently enrolled in the Writer’s Program at the University of California, Los Angeles, to extend my education, strengthen my writers voice, and network within the literary community.
