Nanci Schwartz wanted to be an astronaut when she grew up. She later realized writing science fiction was the more logical option for a girl with pretty bad motion sickness. When she’s not writing or working her day job, she can be found gallivanting around theme parks, reading, and — to quote Owen Lars — wasting time with her friends when her chores are done.
Nanci received a Master’s degree in History, where she wrote her thesis on the evolution of female workers at Kennedy Space Center. (If you’re so inclined, you can read it here!)
