Author Nancy Sharp speaks in Frisco

Summit Daily staff report

Author Nancy Sharp will be at Next Page Books & Nosh in Frisco on Saturday, Jan. 2 from 3–5 p.m. Sharp, author of "Both Sides Now: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Bold Living," will be speaking about the craft of writing memoir, the road to boldness in 2016, and what it means to frame and reframe one's personal narrative on and off the page.


The past is simply part of our story; just not the whole story. On the very day that Sharp delivered premature twins, she learned that her husband's brain cancer returned after 18 months in remission. Less than three years later, at the age of 37, she became a widow. But while many in that situation would crumble, Nancy had an innate ability to hold life and death in the same moment. She learned to "see beyond the frame's edge." Nancy shares her journey — one that offers enlightened understanding for living life to the fullest. Her story is a gift to those looking to lift themselves from the embers of loss and adversity through bold living.

Seeking the solace of the Rocky Mountains and a fresh start, Nancy packs up her 5-year-old twins and leaves Manhattan for Denver, never imagining that she would find love in the pages of a magazine. But after reading an article on eligible bachelors, Nancy sends an email to Steve Saunders, a popular Denver television anchor turned political candidate as well as a widower who'd lost his wife to cancer, and was raising two sons a decade older than Nancy's twins. Today they have been married for six years.

Sharp is an author and keynote speaker who frequently presents to groups and businesses about loss, transformation and bold living. Nancy holds an MFA in creative nonfiction from Goucher College and writes for The Huffington Post. For more information visit
