Author Nan SampsonNan Sampson has been creating fictional realms since she was old enough to hold a crayon. Back then, telling stories about things that didn’t really happen was called “lying.” Now people pay her to do it. She thinks this is pretty cool. She lives in the town of Possibility in the state of Creative Chaos (which is located somewhere north and west of Chicago) with her daughter and Lord Admiral Nelson the VERY pushy poodle. She wishes she lived in one of her fictional worlds, but hasn’t figured out yet how to cross the barrier from this reality to those. Drop in on her on the great wide interweb on Facebook and Twitter, where she’s always happy to chat about just about anything!
