Nancy Tardy is a retired pharmacist and attorney with university teaching experience. Interested in all things medical, she enjoys exploring the history of medicine in early Nevada mining towns.
Her medico-legal training led her to attend a Reno, Nevada murder trial of an emergency room nurse, accused of using an anesthetic drug, succinylcholine, to kill his wife, a well-known elected state official. Her knowledge has proved helpful to authors and law enforcement members about the use and abuse of this drug.
A recent guest speaker at the History of Anaesthesia Society meeting in Bath, England, she presented an overview of American murder cases involving this tongue-twister of a drug.
Nancy’s first novel in a series of three cozy mysteries, is set in the barren mountains of central Nevada. It focuses on a female pharmacist and her best friends, both female volunteer EMTs, as they investigate the possibility that one of their coworkers may be a serial killer using this common hospital drug
A world traveler and published travel writer, Nancy now lives and writes in Las Vegas, where she is a member of the Henderson Writers Group.
