Mother, veteran, former interpretative national park ranger, retired educator, poet, and activist, Sandra Nelms-Ludwig was born and raised in rural Bedford County, Virginia, nestled beneath the Blue Ridge Mountains. She began writing poetry at age 12 and has performed in numerous poetry slams and open mics both in Germany and America. Her poetry has appeared in two chapbooks, Litspeak at Hollins University in 1994 and Mouth Music at Big Island, Virginia, in 1997. The collection in Literal Life Lessons is her first book of poetry to be published and is a sampling of her writing from over the past 50 years. She presently resides with her Cocker Spaniel, Sir Duke, in Virginia.
