Hi there, I’m Nancy!

Hello there, if you missed it, I’m Nancy. The writer, travel junkie, and photographer behind this site. I am a journalist who worked in the space of scriptwriting in the early years before the days of social media.

Then for 8 years, and in between, I worked as a part of a nursing healthcare team in a long-term care facility.

I have been in the blogging world since 2007 and have watched it grow and become what it is today.

Now, well over a decade later, I have the privilege to do all the writing, recipe development, and photography for this site full-time. To have the chance to share it all with you every single day is a true pleasure.

When I am not creating and editing content on here, you can find me on the Huffington Post, TODAY Parenting, and other publications.

Now, I’ve added another hat—cookbook author. I’m so excited to continue writing more cookbooks.

I live in border city Windsor, Ontario (Rose City), and Detroit, Michigan.

I’m enchanted with books, candles, anything rustic or shabby chic, and PRETTY, of course. Vintage is something I cherish, so you’ll often find me antiquing to find my next prop or home decor.

Random Fact About Me: If you offer me the spiciest chicken wings, I will not refuse. It’s my kryptonite! Throw in a Coke Zero and I’m a happy girl.

About Whispered Inspirations:

I am so happy that you found your way here. Whispered Inspirations was created to help the everyday person. Be it travelers, foodies, crafters, parents, and non-parents too.

On these pages, we hope you can find inspiration and spark your creativity.

One of my biggest passions has always been cooking and baking. I gravitate towards quick and easy meals that bring people together.

After all, the best memories are made in the kitchen or around the dining room table, right?

So the recipes shared here are easy, delicious, and made to be whipped up in a jiffy!

It’s one of the reasons why I wrote the “How-To Cookbook for Kids,” since I believe kids can be passionate about cooking too.

We travel as often as possible and have an insatiable case of wanderlust. The love of food and the experience of culture goes hand in hand with travel.

If this sounds like you too, you are in the right place.

You’ll find delicious recipes, amazing travel destinations, fun craftstips to make life easier, and ways to make the most of your favourite living spaces.
