2016 marks Nancy Rue's 35th year as a published writer. In that time, she has become a best-selling author of books for ‘tweens, teens and adults. Over her career she’s written 125 books and has won two Christy Awards as well as the Women of Faith Novel of the Year distinction. Her recent tween girl trilogy, The Mean Girl Makeover, gave rise to the So Not Okay anti-bullying movement.
Nancy has expanded her offerings to include a mentoring program called From Shadow to Shelf for budding authors with dreams of their own. She travels North America speaking and teaching at writer's conferences and holding writing intensives.
She lives in Tennessee with her husband, Jim. Their daughter, Marijean, son-in-law, Brian, and five-year-old granddaughter Maeryn, live in nearby Nashville. The Rues’ yellow lab Geneveve and tabby cat King Arthur share Jim and Nancy’s home. Without them writing would be difficult.

Sorry I’m Not Sorry Middle Grade story - tells the story of Kylie Steppe, former queen bee of Gold Country Middle School. After bullying a fellow GCMS student, Kylie has been expelled—and she has to attend mandatory counseling. Without her posse to aid her and other peers to torment, Kylie focuses on the person who stole her GVMS popularity crown: Tori Taylor. As Kylie plots revenge on Tori, she attends therapy sessions, where she reveals a few details that might explain why she finds power in preying on her middle school peers. After a rough year with bullying backfire, will Kylie decide to become more empathetic with her peers?
It's hard for tweens to imagine why a bully acts the way she does. Sorry I’m Not Sorry shows girls that they hold the power to stop bullying through mutual understanding and acts of love.
