Hello and welcome!

I am L.M. Nelson, the author of The Guardian, a YA Fantasy fiction novel.

Here is the first chapter. The book is set for release before the first of the year.

I have also written the Scrubs series, a four book medical-themed family saga with a romantic flair. To learn more about this series, visit the Scrubs Book Series page.

Aside from The Guardian and my Scrubs series, I’m currently working on a few other projects — an adult crime novel, the sequel to The Guardian, and a survival/adventure fiction story. I also write poetry, several of which have been selected for literary magazines and published in a poetry collection entitled World Treasury of Great Poems. Many years ago, I co-wrote an article, ‘Gifted and Talented Education at the Close of the Decade of the Brain’, which was published in the educational journal Perspectives: Idaho Association of School Administrators. I recently wrote a guest post for Squirl’s On the Spot blog and an article called Renegade Marketing that was featured on BookDaily. I am also a contributing writer for Millionaire’s Digest.

When I’m not writing, I teach full time and have done so for over twenty years.  I am also a wife, mother of two, gardener, pet owner, and certified CPR/ First Aid instructor.  I love writing, reading a good book, and enjoy photography and music. When I need inspiration, I crank up the tunes or go for a walk, taking pictures along the way. Nature is one of my favorite things, and I love water, beaches, and mountains. I currently reside in Texas, but have lived in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and California.

To learn more about me  and my books you can view my Amazon author page, see my profile on Smashwords, BookDaily, and BookBub, follow me on PinterestTwitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Google +, and Goodreads, connect with me on Facebook, or listen to my interview on DEAR Texas Radio.

    1. Thank you. I saw on your blog that you have a book festival coming to Portland in July. I used to live in Oregon, Salem and Silverton to be exact. I grew up in that part of the country, as well as the Seattle, WA area. I love the Pacific Northwest.

    1. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I lived in the PNW many years ago. I still consider it home. My husband and I are making plans to return within the next 5 years or so. Waiting for the kids to get settled into their own lives first.
