Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Reader Match” where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in love with. It’s our great pleasure to present Nancy Herkness. Writes: Contemporary romance set in places Nancy knows well from personal experience (New York City and West Virginia).
