Where I Live
Nicky Penttila writes stories of history, adventure, ideas, and love. Her historical novels take place during real events, including the Peterloo march in 1819 and Napoleon’s time aboard HMS Bellerophon in 1815. She enjoys coming up with stories that are set in faraway cities and countries, because then she *must* travel there, you know, for research. A web editor for science news by day, Penttila spent two decades as a newspaper journalist, at the Hartford Courant, the San Francisco Examiner, and the Baltimore Sun. A Michigan native, she now lives in Hyattsville, Maryland, with her reading-mad husband and amazing rescue cat. She’s chattiest on Twitter, @NickyPenttila, and may also be found at nickypenttila.com.
