“Daring ideas are like chessmen moved forward; they may be beaten, but they may start a winning game.”Goethe

My ideas lead me to some crazy places sometimes. My characters speak to me, stories come alive in my head, and I often lose myself in a world of fiction. It’s quite an adventure. Thank you for sharing it with me.

My most recent work, The Guardian, was nominated for the TCK Publishing 2018 Readers Choice Awards for Middle Grade/ Young Adult.

The Scrubs Book Series

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.

Sand & Sutures was voted 2017 Texas Authors Medical Fiction Book of the Year!

Center Stage was nominated for the 2017 Reader’s Choice Award.

Beyond the Hardwood was nominated for the Circle of Books 2017 Rings of Honor Awards.

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 story. I also write poetry, educational articles, and guest post for various blogs, including a post for Squirl’s On the Spot blog, an article called Renegade Marketing that was featured on BookDaily, and A Balancing Act . My blog, lmnelsonscorner, is featured on Megatopia‘s writing page.

To learn more about me and my books you can view my Amazon author page, see my profile on Smashwords and BookBub, follow me on Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Goodreads, or connect with me on Facebook. For upcoming releases and book signings, check out my events page.

    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.
