scrubs1-proof-whiteHello and welcome!

I am L.M. Nelson, the author of the Scrubs series, a four book medical-themed new adult/ college fiction series with a romantic flair.  The first book, Scrubs, tells the story of Randy Hanson, a dedicated medical student from Berkeley, California, whose entire life revolves around medical school, until he meets a spunky sorority girl named Jane.  As he progresses through medical school, the demands increase and he discovers the true value of friendship and love.

To read more, visit my Scrubs page.

Please note: Both the e-book version and paperback of Scrubs have recently been revised. 


The second book in the series, Sand & Sutures, follows Randy Hanson, Jim Ryan, and Bruce Buckman into their residency, where they continue their specialized medical training.  As they work to establish their reputations as physicians, they struggle to find balance between their careers and their responsibilities as husbands and fathers.  Throughout this journey, they celebrate successes, encounter unexpected hurdles, and learn that the life of a physician isn’t always beer and pretzels.

For more information, visit my Sand and Sutures page.

The other two books in this series, Beyond the Hardwood and Center Stage, follow the next generation of the Hanson family.  Beyond the Hardwood, the third book, focuses specifically on Randy’s son, Nathan.

Now a senior at Lake Washington High School, Nathan is a top-notch athlete with aspirations of attending medical school. Well known for his skills on the court, Nathan’s name and face are plastered across every sports page in Seattle. When a college recruiter catches wind of his stats, Nathan receives a visit from the head coach of the University of Washington, bringing him one step closer to making his lifelong dream a reality.But sometimes pursuing your dreams comes with a hefty price.

The fourth book in the series, Center Stage has already been written, but needs revisions and editing before it is submitted for publication. The first three books in the series are available through Goodreads and Amazon.

Aside from my Scrubs series, I’m currently working on two other projects — a Young Adult fantasy book and an adult crime novel.  I also write poetry.  Several of my poems have been selected for literary magazines and published in a poetry collection entitled World Treasury of Great Poems, Vol. II.  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, Vol. XVI, No. 1.

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 the 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, 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.
