About J Leigh Nelson

When I was little, I used to think that by the time I grew up, we’d all fly around in rocket ships and colonize the moon and Mars and maybe even Pluto. I believed that when I grew up I would be an author and that authors work in cubicles, like the database programmers I saw when I went with my dad to Take Your Daughter to Work Day. The people I admired in movies and books and on the radio might as well have been fictional or as far away as Pluto because meeting your favorite artist or even going to a concert felt like things that happened to other people, people who lived in bigger towns. As I grew older, playing on swings became less fun. Somebody invented the internet. Pluto became not a planet. The world shrank a little, and I grew up. I moved to a bigger town and have been fortunate enough to meet, work with, and befriend many of the people I’ve admired in movies and books and on the radio. I learned that authors don’t write their novels in cubicles and that being a writer is way more fulfilling than being an author anyway. A part of me still believes that someday we will all fly away in rockets.
