K. L. Nelson has had a lifelong passion for writing, history, and Scotland. As a youth he spent two years in the British Isles, gaining a love for that quaint but intensely proud people as he served them as a missionary. Then returning to the United States, he studied history at university. K. L. always believed education was valuable in and of itself, and studied history simply because he loved it. He never intended to make a career of his studies, opting instead to enter the workforce and pursue history as a hobby.
In 2016, K. L.’s wife Tamara finally prevailed upon him to write a book. She even provided the main story idea and much of the inspiration for the protagonist. The project was an invigorating new chapter in the author’s life, and he hasn’t looked back.
“The Stone of Secrets was a lot of fun to create, and I think I have found a new passion. Most people will not read pure history. It’s fallen out of fashion in a world that wants everything right now. But providing people with an entertaining read and letting them discover something they may not have known about history, that is good stuff!”
K. L. resides in rural Idaho with his wife in the shadow of the Tetons. They are the parents of 6 children.
