Biography

Nancy J. Hajeski has been a birder for decades – her passion has resulted in her traveling to remote areas to look for specific species, such as raptors or wading birds; birding at wildlife sanctuaries in Florida, New Jersey, and New York; attending birding seminars, workshops, and talks at birdwatcher meetings and garden clubs; and becoming a member of the National Audubon Society. She has produced young adult nonfiction for Hammond as well as writing Ali: The Official Portrait of the Greatest of all Time and The Beatles: Here, There and Everywhere for Thunder Bay. She recently finished Complete Guide to Herbs and Spices for National Geographic. As Nancy Butler, she is the RITA-winning author of twelve Signet Regency romances, and her graphic novel adaptation of Pride and Prejudice for Marvel spent thirteen weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. She currently lives beside a Catskill trout stream where bald eagles and mergansers are regular visitors.

Media reviews

"[...] Life-Size Birds: The Big Book of North American Birds is a wonderful concept that had great potential to ignite an interest in birds. It does many things right – it is a visual treat and includes a wide variety of birds. Unfortunately, errors are rampant. It could still serve its intended purpose; personally, I plan on keeping it available near the windows overlooking our birdfeeders so that my kids can peruse it. But I would only recommend doing so if there is someone around who can point out the mistakes."
