Her work has been published in several essay anthologies, and articles, essays, columns, and letters by her have appeared in The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Katie Couric's Wake-Up Call, journals for the American Academy of Psychotherapists and the University of Colorado Hospital’s Center for Bioethics and the Humanities, and elsewhere.

“Eloquent and fiercely hopeful.”

“Nancy Sharp’s honesty and hard-earned wisdom make this book essential reading
for anyone facing adversity—which is all of us.”
- Ann Hood, New York Times bestselling author
"I adore Nancy's story because it speaks to something so important to being healthy, which is resilience. Nancy could have become stuck in her sadness but decided to move forward instead. That takes courage, which can be scary, but it can really contribute to the good life."
Nancy Sharp, your expert guide, draws upon Narrative and Expressive Writing and Guided Autobiography.
Narrative Writing tells a story...your story.
Expressive Writing focuses on putting thoughts and feelings into words.
Guided Autobiography is a method of life story telling developed by Dr. James Birren, PhD, where participants in a small group are led through a series of themes and priming questions that evoke memories.

"Nancy Sharp quite literally helped me walk my book into being. I struggled to write From Sole to Soul: A Daily Prescription for Moving Forward in Your Life for a full decade before working with Nancy. "
