Writer Bios


White Bear Lake Magazine maven Nancy Eike is a writer and editor who adores meeting and writing about all the fabulous folks in the area. She is a huge fan of six-dollar movie tickets from Woodbury Theater and can be found there most weekend evenings with popcorn (sans butter), her husband David and fabulous friends. Her daughter and son-in-law recently celebrated their one-year anniversary, and Nancy promises not to bug them too much for grandchildren. Her son is a junior at Mizzou (Go Tigers!) studying mass media communications and is keen on taking Ryan Seacrest’s job in the future. She is working toward creating a garden that will make others swoon. Email Nancy with story ideas, feedback, comments and tips.
