Nanette L. Avery, novelist and short story writer, is best known for her historical fiction, Orphan in America, which earned distinction as one of the “Best Indie Books of the Year” by Kirkus Reviews. Her most recent title The Fortune Teller and Other Short Works was inspired by her father, a man of great intellect and wit. Growing up in the Virgin Islands, Avery’s diverse experiences as zoo designer, toy library director, educator, and artist contribute to the book’s wide-ranging themes. As a mother and wife, she asserts that “Behind every great writer is a good listener.” Nanette lives outside Nashville, Tennessee with her husband, Craig, and their orange cat.
