“A gifted writer, a skilled actress and a superb storyteller, Bernadette Nason’s beautifully crafted stories are works of art that touch your heart, and make you think, question, laugh and cry, all at the same time. A remarkable blend of honesty, grace and glee, she’s a consummate professional.”

Dr. Judy Matetzschk, Artistic Director, Pollyanna Theatre Company

Bernadette’s been scribbling her whole life, but the blog got started back in 2011, by popular request. Actually, no one asked. She’s just got a lot to say. Of course, there’s never enough time to say it all. “I’ll blog at least once a week,” she tells herself. She’s working on that. Watch this space. In the meantime, click below to read earlier masterpieces about life in Austin, Texas, or her travels around the USA and other far-flung parts of our precious planet.




TEA IN TRIPOLI: A MEMOIR is now available from Amazon (www.amazon.com), BookPeople in Austin, The Twig in San Antonio, or on this website. Go to the Writing page for further details, or the Contacts page to send an email.
