Darrell B Nelson

Biography

Darrell B. Nelson is a former Securities Broker and Insurance Agent who has decided to use the total meltdown of his former industry, and the total destruction of any illusions of personal financial security the meltdown caused, as an opportunity to pursue a writing career.

His passion for writing was encouraged at a young age by his his mother, who would read to him every night. Fueling his dreams in ways only books can. As he got older she took him to the library every week. Letting his imagination soar.

While other children his age were dealing with where they were and what they were doing, he was flying through space helping to build Asimov's Foundation, Make way for Clarke's Star Child, or living on Bova's Selene. Needless to say, he tripped over things a lot.

When he started writing he knew in the future his works would be of great importance, as time travelers arrived and started watching his every move. Or, maybe they were cats, wondering if he would pet them and rub their ears. Time Travelers have whiskers and like to curl up in your lap, right?

In his free time he likes to hang out on Facebook, marveling at how far we've come since the time of the Egyptians who would worship cats and write on walls.

Smashwords book reviews by Darrell B Nelson

  • The Necromouser on Dec. 16, 2010

    Very fun and entertaining.
  • Stages of Invisibility on Jan. 17, 2011

    A quick fun read, I liked it.
  • Train to Nowhere on Nov. 26, 2017

    TRAIN TO NOWHERE is much darker than Piper's other books. It explores the roles placed on individuals by society. It's as if Huxley's BRAVE NEW WORLD and Twain's THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER became intertwined. With the best ideas from both. In the book we travel with Garland as he moves from the very structured Orphan society on the Train which is run by "The Admin", to the Landed society in the cities, which is ruled by public opinion (not informed opinion, just opinion) and the Nomads ruled by tradition. There is a lot of depth in this book, but don't let that stop you from enjoying it. Its focus is firmly on the characters, mostly Garland and Hedge. As a villain Hedge is great, he worked hard to get to his position in Landed society, so when his "Landed Privilege" all the soft advantages (or in this case not so soft) afforded to him by being raised in Landed society, are taken away he is angry at all those who have taken away the fruits of his labors. So he while being an entitled a-hole, he also does have a legitimate gripe, he did actual work hard to get his position. Garland is the hero, but not a perfect hero, he is on the edge of ruthless in pursuit of his dream. Not really understanding the line between compromise and selling out, not that those around him make it easy. All and all this is a very readable book with great depth.
