Nelson has firm roots in Memphis as a graduate of The LeMoyne-Owen College and as a marketing and public relations professional with over 14 years of experience with some of the cities most recognized organizations.

Her latest novel, "The World in Reverse," has topped several Amazon best sellers lists, including #1 for African American Mystery and #1 for organized crime. And it's all about Memphis politics, police and crime.
