R. A. Nelson
R. A. Nelson is the acclaimed author of Throat, Teach Me (called “vivid” and “hypnotic” by The Horn Book Magazine), and Breathe My Name (called “incandescent” by Kirkus Reviews). The strands of Days of Little Texas’s story came from Nelson’s dual fascination with ghosts (he might believe) and with the messianic showmanship of revival preachers.
R. A. Nelson lives with his family in north Alabama. Visit him on the Web at www.ranelsonbooks.com.
