Nancy Marie Brown (born 1960) is an American author, having written five non-fiction books. In The Far Traveler: Voyages of a Viking Woman, she reconstructed the life of Gudrid (born ca. 980), an Icelandic voyager known through the Vinland sagas. Her book, Song of the Vikings: Snorri and the Making of Norse Myths, a Times Literary Supplement 2012 Book of the Year, concerned Snorri Sturluson (1179-1241), an Icelandic poet, historian and statesman. In her 2015 book, Ivory Vikings, the Mystery of the Most Famous Chessmen in the World and the Woman Who Made Them, she argues that Margret the Adroit made the Lewis Chessmen.
