Nancy Rommelmann is a freelance writer and journalist living in Portland. In June she won the Best Arts Feature 2008 award from the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies for “No Exit Plan,” a story about the ten-year con of fake memoir writer Laura Albert, a.k.a. JT LeRoy. She is currently researching a book to be titled On the Bridge: A Meditation on Murder and the Case of Amanda Jo Stott-Smith . Her work has appeared in LA Weekly, the Los Angeles Times, Reason, the Oregonian and Wired. She is a regular contributor to City Arts Tacoma (she loves to take the train), but has also contributed to our other editions when she “cheated” on books by trying out the infamous Kindle.
