Katherine Ann Nelson-Born
Author Katherine Nelson-Born is a poet, freelance writer, writing coach, and editor for K&K Writing Services.
After publishing her debut 2016 Finishing Line Press poetry chapbook, When Mockingbirds Sing, Katherine completed a debut speculative novel, the first of a trilogy, Big Easy Demons and the Orphans of Magic, all set in New Orleans.
Katherine grew up on New Orleans backstreets during the turbulent 60s and 70s and witnessed firsthand lives changed forever by the Vietnam War, Civil Rights, and the sexual revolution. A troubled teen and high school drop-out, she went from GED to PhD and pursued a love-hate affair with writing often derailed, sometimes deranged, but never unfaithful.
