    RECENT PRESS! Why Nancy named her daughter Nancy for PARENTS magazine (Oct 2017)

    Hi, y'all! I like to write stuff that people want to read, and host shows that people want to watch. I'm always interested in possible collaborations and new projects, so feel free to reach out!

     

    Right now I'm getting ready to promote my upcoming book Pregnancy, OMG!, working on my debut novel, and helping my son survive first grade (this week's spelling homework includes the word 'industrious').

     

    Previously, I interviewed celebrities and hosted talk shows on both television and online. My four years of on-air hosting at HuffPost Live and on FOX TV's short-lived So-Me talk show earned me a 2016 GLAAD Award nomination and some very interesting fan mail. Prior to that, I was a spokeswoman for brands like Kotex and Dale Carnegie.

     

    My writing has made The New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and has also garnered a NAACP Image Award nomination, a Mom's Choice Award, and a National Parenting Publications Award. Over the years, I've been a contributing editor and columnist for an eclectic variety of magazines and websites.

     

    While I live in Los Angeles right now, I'm originally from a small town in Southern Virginia. Every summer, I take my college sweetheart, actor Rupak Ginn (Royal Pains, Highland), and our two kids back home for a month or two so that they can get a taste of the good life.

     

    Fun Facts:

    • 15 years ago, I appeared on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? with Regis Philbin and won $250,000.  This would be my first time tripping on national television.  
    • I also went on Let's Make a Deal and only won $100, but connected with Wayne afterward and collaborated on an adorable, if unpublished, parenting project together.  
    • Right after graduating from Harvard, I became Miss Virginia and won the swimsuit competition at Miss America.  This would be my second time tripping on national television.
    • I ate my placenta and wrote about it for The New York Times in a piece virally heralded as the "NYT Headline of the Century."
    • There's lots more, but this is already getting too long, so reach out if you want to know more about me!

    Looking forward to hearing from you!
