Nancy Ames Biography

Nancy moved from Hamilton to Toronto after high school where she studied anthropology at U. of T and was active in the (sixties) artistic community. She has since then lived in rural surroundings, both in the Ottawa Valley and British Columbia, where she has had time and opportunity to write both poetry and prose.
About ten years ago she moved to Calgary and is enjoying the return to an urban environment. She has been an active member of writers' groups here and participated in numerous public readings of her work. She has written several short stories and at present is working on some book-length projects (because that's where the money is) .
She would be happy to collaborate with illustrators, musicians, and other artists, and is especially eager to work with script-writers who could develop screen-plays out of her stories.
