About

Hi, I’m Nancy and I like writing stories about history, love and science! I write in genres from historical romance to crime to short literary fiction. Anything that inspires me and wants me to put words to paper.

I’m a hopeless lover of all things Australian in origin – I’ll take them in any form, books, podcasts, tv or film.

When I’m not writing fiction, I work as a research scientist in entomology. Together with my partner Tony (the ideas man) I look after my adorable 7-year old, who loves stories as much as I do!

I’m a member of Romance Writers of Australia, and in 2020 have finaled in three competitions – The Emerald, Selling Submission (first place) and Sweet Treats short story contest. I was a finalist in the 2019 Valerie Parv Awards and Runner Up in the 2018 Selling Submission competition. My first published fiction can be found here in Tulpa Magazine: https://tulpamagazine.com/2018/11/16/the-hands-of-the-dead-by-nm-cunningham/

Keep a look out for my stories in two anthologies to be published this year ‘An Easter Lily on the Somme’ in ‘Easter Promises: An historical anthology’ (Release date April 9) and ‘Miss Minnie’s Courage and Cupcakes’ in the Romance Writers Sweet Treats Anology ‘Cupcakes’ (Release Date August).
