Looks like some of you took to your research, and great detective work, by the way, too! The few facts we know about Nancy’s mom for certain in the books are these:
• Nancy’s heritage is Scottish on her mom’s side (Read The Clue of the Whistling Bagpipes)
• Nancy’s mom’s maiden name was Austin
• She died when Nancy was 10 (in the original blue books)
• She died when Nancy was 3 (in revised books)
• She died of an illness
• She died in a car crash
Since there are contradicting facts simply because of book revisions, I suppose you could say any of these above notes are true. This gave us freedom to choose one age, and one cause of death, as well as fill in all of the blank about her. I can’t wait for you to see what we did in The Silent Spy! It’s so cool!
Speaking of spies, we shared this Nancy Drew moment today. Getting a creepy phone call from a spy? Yeah. Totally normal!
We have a few small things to announce tomorrow, so come back and see what little news bits we have to share!
