Today’s Guest Blogger: Nancy Carpentier Brown

I became aware of Nancy Carpentier Brown’s work through her book The Mystery of Harry Potter: A Catholic Family Guide (Our Sunday Visitor, 2007).  Though I’ve never read the Potter books, every one of them is in our home, and most have been read more than once by our eldest daughter (now 17), so I’ve been attentive to what’s being said about the series for about half a dozen years.  I found Nancy’s book to be a common-sense and helpful approach, and then was all the more intrigued when I became aware of her strong interest in G.K. Chesterton. 

Nancy has also contributed a chapter to The Catholic Homeschool Companion.  Her articles have appeared in Our Sunday Visitor, This Rock, Gilbert, Canticle, Sunshine Artist, and Heart and Mind (now mater et magistra). Her poetry has won a Catholic Press Association award.

Nancy’s own blog is Flying Stars, and besides that, she also blogs regularly at The Blog of the American Chesterton Society
