Home is where the heart lies. Nan O'Berry grew up listening to stories at her grandparents' feet. So it's not surprising that her love of a good story pushed her to begin writing her own tales for enjoyment. As these grew, she shared her historical perspectives about the heroes of her imagination: cowboys, lumberjacks, and the country they founded. Armed with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies Degree from Old Dominion, Nan loves finding those interesting facts that might lead to a good story. She also writes as Tessa Berkley.
