Colin T. Nelson grew up in a small town in southern Minnesota. He has worked as both a prosecutor and public defender for over thirty years where he’s seen cases that could never be used on reality TV—they’re too real; no one would believe them! His books are page turners, and he wants to teach readers something new in every book that they didn’t know before. In addition to a pair of thrillers Fallout (nominated for the Minnesota Book Awards) and Reprisal, he’s written a financial handbook called, When Can I Tell My Boss, I Quit! Colin also plays a tenor sax in a jazz group called BlueMood.
