R.E. Nelson

I was born in Texas and raised in Southern California. I have been writing for as long as I can remember. One of my earliest recollections related to writing was winning an essay contest in sixth grade--something patriotic about the American flag. I love to travel but prefer staying in select areas for an extended period of time and learning about that place. I have lived for extended periods in both Vietnam (twice, actually) and Saudi Arabia, and also spent time in Egypt, South Korea, Shanghai (my only China visit thus far), and Dubai. I now happily reside in San Francisco.
