Bonna Nelson

Bonna Nelson is a former Social Security Administration Director. She has enjoyed teaching memoir and creative writing programs at Harford Community and Chesapeake Colleges, and at the Genesis Pines Healthcare Center, and has served on the board of Pickering Creek Audubon Center and on the Bay to Ocean Writers Conference Steering Committee. She has also served as an Outreach Volunteer for the Talbot County Free Library for several years after moving to the Shore in 2005.

Bonna and her husband John love to travel and enjoy boating from their “base camp” on the Tred Avon River in Easton. She has a passion for writing and takes her notebook and camera wherever they go, always looking for the perfect story or beach! Being a columnist, writer, artist and photographer, Bonna has contributed hundreds of articles, essays, stories and photographs to periodicals and newspapers around the area.

Between traveling and writing, much of Bonna’s time is now spent as a member of the “sandwich generation,” lovingly coordinating care for her mother and spending quality time with her granddaughter.
