Nancy Carabio Belanger has loved to write ever since she was a little girl. She used to write fiction stories in math class when she was supposed to be listening to the teacher, a practice she certainly does not recommend to her readers! She has a great love for Blessed Mother, St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Pio. She says that Therese's Little Way is a reminder to us that we can all make little sacrifices to please God. Olivia and the Little Way is a 2009 Catholic Press Association book award winner, children's books. It is also a 2010 recipient of the Catholic Writers Guild Seal of Approval. The pro-life sequel to Olivia and the Little Way, Olivia's Gift, has received the Catholic Writers Guild seal of Approval and is a 2011 Catholic Press Association book award winner. The Gate is her third novel, and a first-place winner for Best Catholic Novel in the 2014 Catholic Press Association Book Awards. The novel celebrates the dignity of the Catholic priesthood and God's calling for each of us. Nancy graduated with degrees in English and journalism from Michigan State University. She is a member of the Catholic Press Association, the Independent Book Publishers Association, and the Catholic Writers Guild.

"Parents looking for a book that...promotes wholesome Christian values and the Catholic faith will want to get their hands on Olivia's Gift. Pro-life values are subtly underscored in a moving chapter...and Olivia's turning to her favorite saint for help ultimately leads her to do the right thing, after taking a few wrong turns along the way. Even better, her example influences her friends to become better persons themselves." --San Antonio "Today's Catholic"
"With Olivia's Gift, talented author Nancy Carabio Belanger delivers another treat for young readers, and the young at heart who love them. You'll be entertained and inspired by this story of loving and serving others, which should be on the required reading list for every Catholic school." --Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com
"Olivia's story is the gift itself to young readers who may be in dire need of turning in a different direction other than popular fiction....While it is a Catholic story by nature, this is a story of the human spirit and the fact that teenagers and young adults are already experiencing their own profound stories of faith and God....It is a refreshing and realistic reprieve from what teenagers today are currently very distracted by..." --The Catholic Press Association of the U.S. and Canada
