About the Author
Born in Eugene Oregon, BD Nelson spent most of her life in the Northwest. Her third grade teacher encouraged her to continue writing and although her life took a different path, she never forgot the words of encouragement, or the story she'd written. She majored in Accounting while working full time doing bookkeeping and tax preparation, and waiting tables, while raising her two children, but continued to write in her "spare time." BD Nelson is a member of The Willamette Writers of Portland, Oregon and has written several short stories; APARTMENT 304 and ONE FOR SHOW-TWO FOR THE MONEY, are two that have been published in THIRTY FABULOUS STORIES: AN ANTHOLOGY, edited by Larry Parr. Aside from ABIGAIL'S CRIES, she has completed two other novels: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY and SCORNED awaiting publication. BD Nelson has also written a chidren's book: MR. TOOL'S FARM, which was donated to a religious organization in 1991, and a short story: TOMORROWS DREAM, published in 1994.
