She has spent the last 20 years in the publishing business, and has been a buyer, sales director, and creative director primarily of children’s books. She has published four non-fiction children’s books and a membership magazine for the National Storytelling Association, written environmental assessment reports, and tried her hand at sappy love longs. After graduating from the Univ. of Tennessee with a trifecta in the Liberal Arts (psychology, anthropology, and art history), Nell worked as a carpenter, commercial fisherman, guitar player and singer, fisheries biologist for the Alaska Dept. of Fish & Game, and owner of a retail business selling vintage instruments by mail order.
