Notes Concerning the Author
James L. Nelson, born in Maine in 1962, is a prolific author of naval fiction and nonfiction.
Most of Nelson’s work relates to the era of the American Revolution. However, he has published two realistic and interesting novels about a Confederate navy crew. Glory in the Name takes place on the Virginia coast early in the war, and in the sequel, Thieves of Mercy, the crew moves to an ironclad on the Mississippi River. Glory in the Name was awarded a prize by the American Library Association in 2004 for excellence in military fiction.
