The author is Australian. Nanette Fox has written creatively most of her life, an inconsistent hobby until a few years ago. Now she has time to devote to developing her scribblings into absorbing stories. Nanette is a keen observer of people, their look, their mannerisms, how they relate to their friends and family. Her protagonists and the minor supporting roles are a mish-mash of her many jottings. Making notes in an endless collection of journals and diaries, she develops her characters and their context from her observations. Inspired after attending ISP Cambridge UK, in August 2018 Nanette continues her writing activities exploring poetry, and short stories. She is developing a sequel to Finding Izzy titled Telling the Children.
