Nancy Hopkins Reily thought she knew everything she needed to know when she published I Am At An Age in 1990 at age fifty. Reily had compiled her life’s experiences with metaphors using the mountains as background. But six months after the book was published she realized she had more to learn: in-laws, sandwich generation, writing, sixty-four lines of genealogy, over thirty-four years of journals, laurels, her aging and grandchildren. She knew she would have to write a sequel. And here it is, twenty-two years later.
Nancy Hopkins Reily was born in Dallas, Texas about mid-way between the Great Depression of 1929 and 1941 when the United States entered World War II. She was named after a McCall’s magazine story with the heroine named Nancy, a name her mother liked. With two brothers she didn’t play dolls, but played baseball and football in the neighborhood, caught fireflies at night and climbed the low branch tree in their yard. Since childhood, Reily has divided her time between Texas, Colorado and New Mexico. Her college education began at Gulf Park College, Gulfport, Mississippi and ended with a B.B.A. degree from Southern Methodist University. After college she joined the ranks of marriage, homemaker and motherhood. This led to a career of volunteering for many various organizations. She is also the author of Classic Outdoor Color Portraits, A Guide for Photographers; Georgia O’Keeffe, A Private Friendship, Part I, Walking the Sun Prairie Land; Georgia O’Keeffe, A Private Friendship, Part II, Walking the Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch Land; Joseph Imhof, Artist of the Pueblos with Lucille Enix, and My Wisdom That No One Wants, all from Sunstone Press, and I Am At An Age, Best of East Texas Publishers. Reily makes her home in Lufkin, Texas.
