Shadow of Doubt is a thoroughly satisfying crime novel with fascinating, authentic glimpses into the world of talk radio and some of its nastier stars. ​The killings pile up as the indomitable lead character, Carol Childs, figures out the ingenious murder plot despite several twists and turns that keep the reader in suspense until the final climactic pages. The writing is compelling and the settings ring true thanks to the author’s background as a newscaster herself.  Looking forward to further criminal pursuits with Carol. – Jill Amadio, Author.

About Nancy Cole Silverman

Silverman believes her twenty-five years in radio help her to develop an ear for storytelling. In 2001 she retired from news and copywriting to write fiction fulltime. Much of what she writes she admits is pulled from behind the headlines of actual events that were reported on from some Los Angeles busiest radio newsrooms where she spent the bulk of her career. In the last ten years she has written numerous short stories and novelettes some of which have won awards &/or been picked up for publication. Currently she has three audio books with MindWings Audio. Her first novel, The Centaur’s Promise, was published by Eloquent Press in 2010.  In December, Henery Press will roll out the first of Silverman’s new Carol Childs Mysteries, Shadow of Doubt.

Questions with the Author

Is there a book you wish you had written?

Gone with the Wind. It’s one of my favorites.

What is your favorite story about your childhood that the family tells over and over?

I grew up in the middle of a citrus orchard and when I was about six or seven, I wired all the grapefruit trees in my backyard with orange cans so that my friends and I could talk to each other. Those trees became my imaginary spaceship and in some ways perhaps the beginning of my wild imagination for all things beyond our three dimensional realm.

What’s on your bucket list?

Ireland. I’d like to do the Ireland’s castles and monastic ruins on horseback. I have a girlfriend who did it and since I love to ride, I think it would be fun. There is something about riding a horse and exploring that excites me.

Where would Carol go on vacation?

Hawaii, Baja California, or anywhere with Eric that doesn’t involve sailing. Unfortunately, since Eric lives on a sailboat, she’s going to have to figure that one out pretty quickly. Stay tuned.

What is the one thing you can’t live without? That one must have item?

My computer. It allows me time to write, study and escape into my own world, yet still be in touch with family and friends.

Shadow of Doubt is available for purchase on Amazon and in bookstores everywhere!


I have always loved to read, and carry a book with me wherever I go. I’ve written for several online sites, doing book reviews and author interviews. After graduating in 2000 from West Texas A&M with a Bachelor’s degree, I was a teacher for a while before deciding my destiny was to write, not to mold young minds. Writing for me is like taking an exciting journey, or going on a welty, as my parents say. I don’t know where my stories are going to take me. I just hang on and enjoy the ride.
