Her stories have appeared in The New Yorker, Harper's, and The Best American Short Stories. She teaches creative writing at the University of Houston, and lives and works in Texas, New Mexico and Telluride, Colorado.
Praise for Nothing Right:
"Slow down and savor every page, because the characters are vivid and flawed and achingly real, the humor suitably grim, and the undertones of loss almost palpable...Nelson's insight and language are...simply gorgeous. There is not a single thing wrong with Nothing Right."
"A writer who isn't afraid to remind us of the familiar, who values insight over epiphany."
