Sometime in the early 1990s, Scott Nelson traded a job as a reporter, feature writer and photographer on a New Zealand daily newspaper for a one-way ticket to London - using the city as a base for six years of backpacking around five continents. Along the way, Scott worked as a travel, entertainment and business journalist; a pourer of pints, a tour guide, a salesman and as a live-in carer looking after elderly people with advanced dementia. Nowadays, he lives with his partner and young twins in Nova Scotia, where the Atlantic meets North America. Here, he works as a corporate storyteller, a web developer and as an epublishing consultant. The Carer is Scott's third book - and his first novel.
