Roslyn A. Nelson
Roslyn Nelson (aka “Ros”), author of Snow on Fire, lives near Lake Superior in a very small Wisconsin town where she is renovating a 100+ year old storefront for her graphic design (glacialdrift.com) and book design activities (littlebigbay.com) and for life-in-general.
Mellen, Wisconsin is at the foothills of an ancient mountain range, now worn to gentle hills called the Penokee Range. Under attack by a mining company, protection of this pristine watershed has been an important focus in Ros’ life in recent years. From the top of the ridge, pure bone-chilling water bubbles to the surface from totally uncharted sources and flows into Lake Superior – into 10% of all the fresh surface water in the world. A proposed open pit taconite mine would have gutted the streams and forests of the Penokee Range, destroyed the priceless clean water, and polluted the area for the foreseeable future — but the earth advocacy efforts have paid off as the mining company has (at least for now) retreated.
Ros’ first book of poetry is Raving About Summer ~ Fussing About Winter and celebrates life in another small town: Bayfield, Wisconsin.
Snow on Fire is available on Amazon.com and other online book retailers worldwide.
