Nancy Cole Silverman spent nearly twenty-five in Los Angeles Talk Radio, beginning her career on the talent side as one of the first female voices on the air. Later, on the business side, she retired as one of two female general managers in the nation’s second-largest radio market. After a successful career in the radio industry, Silverman turned to write fiction. Her crime-focused novels and short stories have attracted readers throughout America. Her Carol Childs Mysteries series features a single mom whose day job as a reporter at a busy Los Angeles radio station often leads to long nights as a crime-solver. While her Misty Dawn Series is centered on an aging Hollywood Psychic to the Stars, who supplements her day-to-day activities as a consultant to LAPD and the FBI. Silverman’s newest work, The Navigator’s Daughter, centers on a daughter’s promise to her dying father to go to Hungary, where he was shot down during the Second World War to find his rescuers. Silverman lives in Los Angeles with her husband.
