Elfwood, The Shiny Silver Steam Engine
At the foot of the Majestic Mountain, between Frogtown and Snail Hollow lies a quiet Village of elves. The puffer is a train that was found many intervals* after the Great Disaster. The old Machinist made it run and taught the young villagers to drive it. But when the old elf died, all knowledge of how to repair it was lost.
Nancy Buscher began writing back in the last millennium, late at night while the family was fast asleep. She didn't write seriously until 1988, when she sold her business and moved to Charleston, S.C. She started with greeting card captions, poems and plays for children, but for a while writing advertising paid the bills.
During that time she became a Writers Guild of America (WGA) Signatory Agent representing screenwriters to the film industry. The Christmas Cat-Astrophe, a play for children that had won a state competition was produced for Piccolo-Spoleto, Charleston's annual cultural festival. The Raggedy Balloon Man was one of 12 plays selected from across the nation for the first Annual SC Playwright's Conference in Beaufort, SC. She was nominated three times for the Elizabeth O'Neill Verner Award, South Carolina's prestigious arts award.
She moved to Venice, FL. when her parents passed away. She returned to college and graduated in 2010, with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art and a minor in Writing. In 2011, she met Brenda Spalding at a book signing and they formed ABC-Artisans of Books for Children and a few months later included adults. She published Artisans of Books for Children - Fall/Winter 2012 Catalog. Since then she has published eight books for children to age 10, and recently published ABC-2016 Anthology of Florida Writers and Poets.
Life is A Fork'n Knife: Handling Stress
In this book, we focus on what I call wearing stress. The kind we encounter daily and how we might handle it. You will read thoughts, ideas, and examples from regular people and how they handle stress. Simple line drawings are matched with affirmations because we all like visual aids. Reading this book is best done with a glass of wine after a busy day, while stopped in bumper to bumper traffic or during those private times in the tiny room at home or away.
