Originally from Tennessee, Nancy Gates came to Alaska as a young wife and mother of two small boys in 1978. Nancy and her family, eventually expanding to six children, have lived in various cities within Alaska over the past thirty-three years including Anchorage, Seward, Juneau, Ketchikan, and Palmer. Nancy enjoys writing about what she enjoys living--family life among the extraordinary people in the Last Frontier. Her essays have appeared in various collections and magazines including "We Alaskans," "Alaska Magazine, " and the "Cup of Comfort" anthologies. One of her feature articles earned Honorable Mention in the 71st Annual "Writer's Digest "Writing Competition. The coauthor of "The Alaska Homesteader's Handbook," Nancy also enjoys contributing to, editing, writing, and updating travel books such as "Alaska's Best Places," "Discovery Travel Adventures Alaskan Wilderness," "Insight Guides Alaska," "Berlitz Pocket Guide for Alaska," and "The""Alaska Almanac(R)." Mr. Whitekeys (www.mrwhitekyes.com) is a humorist and noted writer and commentator about all things wacky in or about Alaska.
