Nancy Warren eBooks
Nancy Warren was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. After graduating with an honours degree in English literature from the University of British Columbia, she began work as a journalist. For five years, she worked her way up the journalistic ladder, from answering phones to writing to editing. The work taught her the need for brevity and clarity in writing, as well as the fact that an article must grab the reader's attention immediately. Ready for a change, Warren moved into corporate communications and public relations. She worked for both government and businesses and ran her own company for a time. She quit her job when her husband was transferred to Vancouver, and spent the next four years learning how to write a novel.
In 1999, she won the Molly Contest in the Short Contemporary Category. The following year, she entered Harlequin Books's 2000 Summer Blaze Contest. The contest, designed to highlight the new Harlequin Blaze line of category romances, required her to submit a 10-page love scene and a synopsis for a complete book. Warren won the contest, giving her a contract to write her Blaze novel. Two weeks later, Harlequin bought two manuscripts which she had previously submitted. One of these, Flashback, became her first published novel, a July 2001 Harlequin Temptation. The other, Shotgun Nanny, became a Harlequin Duet. Her submission for the Blaze contest became her second publication, Live a Little.
