Home is where the heart lies. Or so Nan O'Berry believes. She grew up on a quiet street in Virginia Beach, Virginia. However, her love for horses led her family to purchase a small farm in western Tidewater. She grew up listening to family tales, so it's not surprising she loves a great story. Armed with a Bachelor Degree from Old Dominion University, she loves sharing heroic stories of cowboys, lumberjacks, and small town folks. Nan also writes as Tessa Berkley.
