About the Book
Shelby sets out from L.A. on a much-needed vacation to mend her heart from its latest unrequited crush (on her boss!) Lost in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Shelby stumbles on a rustic mountain resort. There she meets Carol, the resort manager, who’s fantasies are getting in the way of creating a real relationship. As the two women’s casual vacation encounter turns into something more profound than either of them bargained for, they each discover what’s holding them back from living life fully in the present.

About the Author
Writer / Performer / Producer Nancy Beverly
My most recent artistic endeavor was writing, producing, and acting in my one-person show Sister from Another Planet at the 2023 Hollywood Fringe Festival. Directed by Carol Becker, we had full houses and great reviews…followed by some encore performances in January 2024 at the Davidson-Valenti Theatre.

My career has included working on such shows at Roseanne, Blossom, Desperate Housewives and Ghost Whisperer. But producing my own work has been artistically fulfilling. Some of my fav projects are The Calamities of Jane, a web series co-written and co-produced with Rebecca Klingler about a woman dealing with ageism and sexism in Hollywood (imagine that?!) and Shelby’s Vacation, a lesbian romance film directed by Vickie Sampson. My playwriting career began at Actors Theatre of Louisville where I had several short plays produced. In L.A., I’ve been with the playwrights’ group Fierce Backbone for many years and have had the joy of writing such plays as Dyke-Doggie Patrol (selected by WeHo for its Pride Readings), Handcrafted Healing (chosen by the Athena Project in Denver for a workshop production), and Community (made the top 12 of the American Association of Community Theatres). Shelby’s Vacation is my first novel – and I’m thrilled I get to tell the full story of Shelby and Carol.
