Nancy Watson

Nancy Watson was raised on the land in the Yass and Young districts of NSW, her father being a grazier of wool and wheat. In Young, she was school captain in 1959, and then worked in the banking industry until she married in 1965. Raised with a love of music, she played piano for a number of years and loved singing in local musicals in her early life. After raising two children, she re-entered the workforce and worked for a coal mining company in the Lake Macquarie area for 17 years.
Her interest in writing remained constant throughout her early career, but did not take o until she had a travel article published in 2013. Then in 2015, she joined a creative writing group through U3A, where she had an unexpected inspiration to write about Flossie the fairy ... perhaps in uenced by the memory of a little moss fairy garden she had as a child. Nancy has lived for the past 30 years on the western edge of Lake Macquarie; the many moods of the lake never disappoint.
