BIO
Biography

Nancy Vo was raised where the sun rose in the prairies and set behind the Rockies. She studied architecture and fine arts. By day, she works as a facility planner, where her colleagues politely tolerate her love of bad puns and argyle socks. By night, she works on picture books. The Outlaw and The Ranger are the first two books in her picture book trilogy, Crow Tales.
