Cecily Nabors lives in Silver Spring, Md., near Washington, D.C. As a freelance writer, she has published over 100 stories and articles for adults and children in such venues as The Friend, BirdWatcher’s Digest ( next article will be in July, 2013), and The Washington Post. For several years, she had her own nature column, called Observations, in the Audubon Naturalist News.
She has kept a journal since ninth grade and mines it frequently for articles on travel, natural history, and birding. It’s also been useful for tracing trends and noting attitude changes!
She has a couple of novel manuscripts making the rounds, after being vastly improved by her two critique groups. A retired software manager, she is now the Coordinator of the Natural History Field Studies program, after earning her her own certificate in 2001. She’s also an active member of the Board of the Aspen Hill chapter of Friends of the Library, Montgomery County.
