Ford Nashett and Irene Black – storytellers who specialize in crime fiction and the paranormal – combined their last names to write under the nom de plume Nash Black. Their titles include novels of intricate detective work involving murder with unexpected results and tales of the paranormal.
Their writing has a unifying background in rural America, where long established values demand the characters solve their own problems.
A collection of ghost stories, Haints and a non-fic...tion work, Writing as a Small Business reached the finals of the Independent Publishers Award.
Irene and Ford began their writing experience when Irene had an essay printed in an anthology in 1954 and Ford wrote his first play in 1959.

People talk about where they grew up and call it home. We got to counting last week and discovered that Russell County is our home (retirement home is where we've lived the longest) - funny neither of us are gypsies in any sense of the word, but it seems like it when you start counting.
