Nancy Roseberry was reared on a farm in western Illinois near Galesburg. From 1966 until 1971, she taught high school English in public schools in Charlestown, IN; Champaign, IL; and Burlington, IA. She then worked briefly as a legal secretary in Louisville, KY, until her son was born in June of 1972. From 1972 to 1974, she was an instructor at Spencerian Business College in Louisville, teaching business writing, grammar, and vocabulary and overseeing the legal secretaries' internship program. During that time and ongoing for years after that, she also served as a freelance editor, editing the work of college professors, researchers, novel writers, students, PhD candidates, executives, and writers of religious material. From 1985 through 1988 she worked as editor-in-chief for the Urban Studies Center at the University of Louisville, editing grant proposals, grant findings, monographs, promotional material, newsletters, and all journal articles published by the Journal of Urban Affairs. In January 1989, she was hired by the Presbyterian Church (USA) as Director of Copyediting for Curriculum. In 1994, still with the Presbyterian headquarters in Louisville, she became Director of Copyediting for Westminster John Knox Press, the Church's publishing arm, which produces trade books on scholarly and academic religious topics. Following a restructuring of the Church in 1998, she was promoted to Production Manager for all of the curriculum published by Presbyterian Church. Part of her role in this position was to chair the Production Committee of an ecumenical curriculum publishing partnership made up of six mainstream Protestant denominations in the U.S. and Canada. After that, she worked with the University of Louisville's Brown Cancer Center, where she edited grant proposals, symposium papers, and other materials. She was also responsible for writing the annual progress reports to the NIH for three large cancer research grants.

Nancy reads widely and often. Among her favorites are academic studies on women's issues, biographies of famous literary figures, and revisionist histories. She regularly reads The New Yorker, TIME Magazine, and The Atlantic Monthly.
