In addition to writing 7 novels, I have co-authored several guidebooks on outdoor recreation along with my husband, Charlie. We live in western Colorado, but I was born and raised in Denver. I am a self-described "retired software geek" who loves hiking, rock climbing, and cross-country skiing when I'm not glued in front of my computer playing around with website designs, watching cat videos, and writing stories with outdoor adventure themes. 

I am an enthusiastic volunteer with the service organization Altrusa International. I'm particularly passionate about literacy-related projects in my community. 

Memories & Secrets
The Daughters' Baggage
The Abandoned Girl
No Direction Home

Guidebooks (co-author):
Highpoint Adventures - the complete guide to the 50 state highpoints
The Essential Guide to Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve
The Trad Guide to Joshua Tree - 60 favorite climbs from 5.5 to 5.9

Overall, we have sold over 40,000 copies of our titles. I maintain our author website, a Facebook page, Twitter account, and a Pinterest page all focused on our books and on outdoor adventures.
