About Me

Sylvia A. Nash


Sylvia A. Nash is the author of two cozy mystery series, three short story collections, one thriller, and one book of verse in addition to multiple articles, short stories, and poems in print and online periodicals.

Nash, a former high school English teacher, holds a BA with a major in English and a minor in Philosophy and has completed additional graduate and other coursework in writing (fiction, technical, poetry, children’s literature), English literature, and journalism. She belongs to three professional writers’ groups—ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers), SinC (Sisters in Crime and Sisters in Crime—Guppies), and MWA (Mystery Writers of America).

Nash is also an amateur genealogist. She is fascinated with the past—both the people and the events—especially with how both the recent and distant past bleeds into the present and the future. She currently resides in a small university town in West Tennessee where retirement allows her the opportunity to write imaginary stories and discover her own family’s real story.
