BAGSC member Cynthia Jackson, sent an email the other day, asking “is this one of us?” with a link to an article in LAObserved: Native Intelligence, Observations by LA Observed authors and other Angelenos.

Titled, “A visit from the Bomb Squad,” (click on the title to read the article), I didn’t even glance at the byline and started reading right away. When I read the reference to botanical art at the end of the article, (no, I’m not going to give it away — you have to read the article), I scrolled quickly back to the top. Sure enough, it was written by Nancy Boyarsky!

For those of you who are newer BAGSC members, Nancy was one of our founding members, and served on the Board for many years handling Public Relations and Communications for BAGSC with her wonderful writing skills.

Nancy responded to my email that since leaving BAGSC, she’s written two mystery novels, now available on Amazon: The Swap: A Mystery and The Bequest: A Mystery, and is now working on her third book.

And yes, Nancy sent the article to the unnamed botanical artist responsible, and she and her family thought it was very funny.

Thank you Cynthia, and congrats Nancy!
