Introduce Yourself : Introduction: Nancy Naigle by Nancy Naigle

Introduction: Nancy Naigle

Hey, y'all,

I'm the author of over twenty-five novels in romance, and contemporary women's fiction genres. Three of my novels have been made into movies and have aired on Hallmark networks.

I joined Stage32 to network with others, and to leverage the education modules on screenwriting.

Born and raised in Virginia Beach, I now call North Carolina home.

I look forward to exchanging ideas and knowledge within this group.

Best wishes,


Marie Higgins

Hi, Nancy! Congrats on your books making it to Hallmark. I'm also an author of 80+ clean romance novels / novellas and I've been trying to get Hallmark to notice me. I'd love to hear about your journey!

Nancy Naigle

It's so nice to meet you. Happy to share! I was quite lucky to get my first book, CHRISTMAS JOY, noticed by Crown Media. It was actually a one-two punch. First, a tweet was noticed and a connection made which resulted in a request of the manuscript before it was published. Then, a year later one of the folks in production saw the book on a table in the front of Barnes & Noble and fell in love with it. You just never know where or when that door will open. :)

Hey, Nancy Naigle! My name is Kay, I'm the Community Manager here at Stage32. Nice to meet you! Oh, VA Beach? I was raised in NoVA and often visited that area! A rather large holistic health community there, actually (I'm a retired massage therapist).

Oh, man, would you do me a favor? Would you start a post in the Screenwriting Lounge ( with your journey to getting produced on the Hallmark Channel? I'm sure Marie is not the only one who'd like to know!

Also, we have TONS have webinars on screenwriting, although I'm partial to the Writer's Room myself - it includes weekly webinars, and this Wednesday (tomorrow?) we're starting our breakdown of world-building: Oh, and a free webinar this Thursday about RomCom:

If you'd like more information about how to explore the Lounges to meet more members and network, please enjoy my most recent blog post:

Enjoy exploring the lounges, and don't forget to comment and respond to others’ posts, too! It's the best way to really connect!

Thank you so much, Karen "Kay" Ross, for these details. I really appreciate your help navigating all the goodies here at Stage32. I'll start a thread over on the screenwriting lounge as you've requested. Having my novels made into Hallmark movies was a dream come true for me. I'm working on a couple of screenplays but still learning the craft. It's so different from writing a novel.

I have no doubt I'll see you over in the Writers Room soon. I'm off to read your blog post now.

Thanks again!
