About Nancy K. Wallace

I am the Youth Services Coordinator at Ellwood City Area Public Library where I do over 200 programs a year. I moderate five young adult book discussions and a creative writing critque group. I have reviewed young adult books for VOYA magazine for sixteen years. My first picture book, The Christmas Cats, was released Sept. 30, 2011 by Pelican Publishing. I am  a frequent contributor to LibrarySparks magazine and my children’s poetry has also appeared in Highlights High Five. My nickname “The FairySockmother” comes from my habit of wearing silly socks for Story Time at the library! Follow me on Twitter as fairysockmother and visit my website: www.nancykwallace.com

    Nancy, would you like to put a ‘Subscribe’ button on your blog? I would like to press it.

    • Sharon,

      Thanks for all you nice comments! I love my job – working with kids and books – it doesn’t get any better than that! I think I have added a subscribe widget to my blog. Try it and see if it works. I’m new at this 🙂

      Take care.

    Excellent reviews, Nancy. I tweeted about you, too! Looking forward to learning more about your circle of ‘Fairy Sockmother’ fans and book choices.
    Very nice to link up!

  3. Hi Nancy,
    It is wonderful to hear somebody who enjoys interacting with books and kids so much and does so many projects. I am interested in your mention of VOYA magazine. I am a writer and have a few books for teens and young adults and I am always trying to find places where interested young people may be.
    Success with your work.

    Hi Nancy,
    I just read an article about you in the Sharon Herald’s Views and Voices. I am wondering if you worked for the Reynolds School District back in the 1970’s. We had a Gifted teacher by your name for just one year in I think 1978.

    • Hi Jane,
      I did teach kindergarten for 5 years in the 70’s right after I graduated from college but it was at our local Catholic School. I have found that I have a pretty common name – I’m glad the Nancy Wallace you knew was “gifted” maybe people will think it is me 🙂 The article was very nice! I am very blessed to have two jobs I love!
      Thanks for getting in touch!
