What others are saying:
On That Other's May Live:
"A macho page turner with resonance and heart that rescues a cadre of rough everyday heroes from undeserved obscurity.” That Others May Live, Kirkus Reviews, Dec. 15, 1999
On Left For Dead:
“Nelson is telling two stories here, the wartime story of the USS Indianapolis, and the story of Hunter Scott, a young boy doing a history project for school… As engaging as the best historical fiction, this will appeal to any reader who likes history and a good story at the same time.” Kirkus Reviews, April 1, 2002
Of the Sylvia Smith-Smith series:
“…a rarity in YA fiction, a successful blend of adventure, contemporary problems and laughs. Buy it. Enjoy it. The entire book is hilarious, refreshing, and far above the usual series fare.” Fast Lane West, Doris A. Fong, Publishers’ Weekly, 1991
