Raised in the small East Texas town of Daingerfield, Summer developed a deep appreciation for animals and nature. Though her career eventually led her to the city, her heart never left her hometown roots. The fictional Grey of the Loodor Tales was based upon Summer’s own cat, rescued at five weeks old from the side of a
rural road on a visit to her hometown in East Texas. The real-life Grey inspired Summer to establish the Nilsson Open A Dor Foundation, which aims to support organizations working to place sheltered animals in forever homes.
Summer lives in Dallas, Texas.
