Full Name: O Terry Nelson
Occupation: Writer


O. T. Nelson's initial impetus for writing a novel was to help pay for and expansion of his house-painting business, but his work has gone on to become much more than that to generations of readers. The Girl Who Owned a City was first published in 1975 and has been popular ever since. O.T. Nelson explains that he wanted children "to realize that they are important and that they have the ability to think and make a difference." His own life is reflected in the story. He wrote the book while living in the Chicago suburb of Glen Ellyn, Illinois - the setting of the story - and the novels protagonists Lisa and Todd Nelson, share the names of his own children. O.T. Nelson lives in Minnesota with his wife.
