Nancy’s most recent work is CAT AMONG THE GHOSTS, a contemporary fantasy for tweens. While other kids do homework after school, Jo and her best friend Christopher work undercover for Jo’s dad, a witch who is part of a secret unit that investigates supernatural disturbances in the city of Philadelphia. Witches in the ordinary world have to hide their talents, so for Jo and Christopher going undercover isn’t something new. But a nest of rogue witches is a lot more dangerous than any schoolyard bully. Supernatural fires are breaking out in the city, and Jo’s father has been warned to trust no one. As Jo and Christopher investigate, the cat in a used bookshop and an ancient oak tree dating back to before the American Revolution led them to an old cemetery that has dangerous secrets of its own.
