“I didn't come crawling into an AA meeting thinking, ‘Oh, I've got to quit drinking.’”—Nancy on denials last gasp.
Inspired by writers she admired for their honesty and grit—Joyce Maynard, Augusten Burroughs, Anne Lamott and Kelly Corrigan—Nancy started writing more and more and by early 2005 had compiled a 250 page manuscript for her own memoir, Last Call: A Memoir.
On her blog, also Last Call, she blogs about recovery, alcoholism, addiction, family, love and her four-legged child, Lucy.
Nancy’s work has appeared on The Fix, The Real Edition, XO Jane and Ravishly, as well as numerous recovery and addiction websites and blogs…including TheRecoveryRevolution.Online
