Ms. Nash is coming to Bentworth on April 23, 2020 for the annual Author's luncheon and to speak to the Library Aides, Journalism, Honors and AP English students about the challenges of writing, as well as the perks of expressing oneself through writing. She will explain the writing process along with the process of becoming a published author. During the luncheon, Ms. Nash will field students questions and personally autograph each students book.
Born to parents with a serious case of “wanderlust,” Abbey Lee Nash has lived in some pretty
interesting places, including on a Christian farming commune in rural Georgia, above a third-
world craft store in Kentucky, and on a Salvation Army retreat center in the Pennsylvania
mountains. She currently lives outside of Philadelphia with her husband, two daughters, and one
very rambunctious Australian Shepherd. When she’s not writing, she loves talking about writing
and reading other people’s writing—especially contemporary YA. Abbey is an active member of
the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. LIFELINE is her first novel.
We look forward to reading Lifeline, and to meeting and learning from Ms. Nash.
