Many of you know by now that I am an, 'accidental writer', but what you may not know is about a week before I published Life is Good; Wit and Wisdom from a Vermont Homesteader (LiG), right in the middle of launch crazies, my editor called me and said, "OK, have you started your next book yet?" I almost fainted. Read more about Catching Up »

Hey There, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here. Wanted to share a really nice happenstance. So I told you that I played the Hillsdale, NY ArtsWalk! last week and then just yesterday I received not 1 but 2 invitations to play; The first is the Hillsdale, NY Pumpkin Fest. I am SO excited because I LOVE events like that - such a piece of Americana history!!!! And then, I was invited to play the Copake/Hillsdale Farmers Market. Food, music, pumpkins…doesn't get better than that does it?
Hope you're well and have a WONDERFUL day,
