Meet Gina

Play It Loud

Play It Loud

Gina Lee Nelson grew up on the sugar beaches of the Florida Gulf Coast. Drawn to the Big Apple by the sweet smell of wishful thinking, she studied acting on Broadway until a dark-eyed cowboy flung her over his saddle and hightailed it down to the Southwest.

Prior to writing, Gina always found a way to add a touch of the dramatic to her life: dinner theatre in Mississippi, children’s theatre in Jacksonville, can-can club in Florida, flower shop in Germany, acting school on Broadway, sweatshirt boutique on Madison Avenue, all night dive on the Lower East Side, video series in Jersey, giant Furskin in Manhattan, and plays and musicals in the Southwest.

She’s currently content to pour her melodramatic tendencies into writing contemporary women’s fiction with a sweet, Southern-fried flavor.
