About me

Nancy North Walker is an award-winning “second act” short fiction writer from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, who took up creative writing following a long career as a business communications executive in Chicago, New York, and New Jersey. She’s partial to speculative fiction, especially sci-fi, horror, and magical realism, but also dabbles in rom-com and contemporary fiction. Her short stories have appeared in several mid-Atlantic anthologies as well as an online literary magazine

Nancy’s sci-fi horror story, Insecticide, which was published in a 2021 horror anthology, won second place in the single short story category of the 2022 National Communications Contest sponsored by the National Federation of Press Women. It also won first place in the Delaware Press Association’s (DPA) 2022 Communications Contest. Her sci-fi flash fiction story, New Year’s 2044 With George, placed second in the 2022 DPA competition. Both stories were published by Devil’s Party Press, an award-winning indie publisher. 

Another of her sci-fi stories, The Companion, won a Judge’s Award in the 2021 Rehoboth Beach Reads Short Story Contest and was published along with other contest winners by Cat & Mouse Press in its fall 2021 anthology, Beach Secrets. Her 2019 story, The Dolphin Whisperers, was also a winner in that contest and was published in Cat & Mouse Press’s Beach Dreams. 

Nancy is currently working on a provocative sci-fi short story collection about the many unexpected ways advanced technology will change our lives in the coming decades.
