I Pen Designs

Official Site of Author Nanette M. Buchanan



 "My pen is motivated by my spirit, my being, who I am. 

My pen is motivated by my experiences those I have been forced to accept and those that have evolved into my accomplishments. 

My pen is motivated by the touch of others, those who have given me a piece of themselves even when they thought it was just a nod of recognition. 

My pen is motivated by a yearning for peace, the desire to fulfill what God has inspired me to do. 

My pen is motivated by the decision to share my thoughts, my experiences, my writings, me.....with others. 

My pen is who I am for that is why I Pen."

Nanette Buchanan is a native of Newark, New Jersey who now resides in Somerset New Jersey.  She is a proud mother, wife and grandmother currently an employee of the State of New Jersey. Looking forward to retiring and writing full time, she has been a self published author since 2007. Her writing began while attending Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.  Poetry her first love, children stories and now novels are a part of her writing experience.  Her poems have been read publicly, sold as greeting cards, and as personalized gifts.  After spinning her wheels, she found that writing was not only her passion but a business.  I Pen Designs was founded and I Pen Books, a subsidiary became her publishing company.

Nanette’s novels have opened new avenues for her literary experience.  Not only has she rekindled her love for writing but found purpose in promoting literacy and the performing arts through  "The Authors Den "".  Through a collaboration of authors, poets, and performing artists it has become a mission to promote, and support literacy within the community.
