“Whether you’re a six-footer or you top off at five feet, ["Tall"] is a reminder that how you measure yourself is more of a determiner of your success and well-being than any measure on a yardstick.”

“Nancy Stancill takes readers on a grand adventure, from her early life as a painfully shy, 6-foot teenager, to a kickass reporter who learned that height can be power.”

Nancy Stancill’s friends packed the back of Park Road Books tonight to hear the author read from her new suspense thriller, Winning Texas.
There was a gray hair or two in this audience of wellwishers – and also a real live teen whose name is a character in the book.
Stancill read a couple of excerpts, then answered questions. She talked about her love of Houston, and West Texas; her visit (with her husband) to a strip club – for research; and what she reads. Video excerpts from the readings and Q&A will be posted below as they are available.
