Author Info

Nancy Duncan, after retiring from teaching secondary education for 34 years, decided to practice what she preached by writing her first book Imagination Prymm of Ipswich, A Year and a Day, a culmination of her burning curiosity for early Colonial life. This curiosity took root, she believes, after a visit to Colonial Williamsburg as a child, eventually flowering into a lifelong interest in herbs and their historical and dyeing properties, as well as their folklore. After retiring, she had the time to immerse herself in other Colonial pursuits, as well, such as spinning wool and flax, natural dyeing, Black Work, early sampler embroidery, knitting, and bone lace (bobbin lace), all of which are integral parts of her book. Nancy also has a passion for travel and has visited 22 countries, and hopes to travel more after the world heals. Her other interests include First Period homes, collecting and studying early American antiques, yoga, and reading.
