Nancy Temple Rodrigue lives in the small town of Lompoc, California, where she writes her novels. Besides writing, Nancy enjoys driving her award-winning 1957 T- Bird and showing it at Car Shows.
Writing about Walt Disney and the Disney parks comes easy for Nancy as she has been an avid Disney fan ever since she was 6 years old and went to Disneyland for the first time. Her novels show her admiration and respect for the man who started it all–Walt Disney.
Nancy loves to entertain and educate her readers while providing a means to have a great time inside the realm Walt Disney created. Her first Disney themed novels are in the HIDDEN MICKEY series. The start of the adventure is HIDDEN MICKEY: Sometimes Dead Men DO Tell Tales! The inspiration for the first book came from long-time friend and past Disneyland cast member David W. Smith. In the 3 short months that followed, Nancy created a great cryptic clue driven storyline with the three main characters filling the roles in the story with over 120,000 words of that novel. David then stepped in as a co-author to assist with a few Disney cast member inside secrets and thoughts, and the rest is history. Readers are immediately hooked, and once hooked they can't wait to devour the other books in the series. The series continues with the sequel: HIDDEN MICKEY 2: It All Started… where Nancy introduces a fantasy element with the creation of the mysterious character Wolf. Giving Wolf the unusual ability to traverse time with a mysterious Red Diamond pendant, Nancy continues the series with HIDDEN MICKEY 3 Wolf!: The Legend of Tom Sawyer’s Island, and she ends Wolf's story with HIDDEN MICKEY 4 Wolf!: Happily Ever After?
