Writing is my passion - always has been always will be. I have amazing writing pals, incredible fellow critique group members, and strong liaisons/mentors from my board position on the Chaffee Country Writers Exchange and memberships with the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and the Colorado Authors League. All these people and activities help me hone my craft—a forever journey to become the best writer I can be. I LOVE it!
A neighbor/Sasquatch believer inspired the idea for The Sasquatch Series in June 2015. I started developing the story-line as a joint effort with my nephew, Cody Tracy. After some months, his love of writing horror took precedence over this Sci-fi/mystery series. So, he moved on to other projects. You can find his work by searching for Internal Logic or The Hooded Hitchhiker.
I’ve worked tirelessly on these books. Since the series won First Place in the Colorado Authors League 2021 Book Awards for Sci-Fi, I guess I'll stop calling myself a 'debut author.' In addition to continuing The Sasquatch Series (Book 4 to be released in fall 2021), I'm working on a new series about two time traveling women from the future who are working desperately to repopulate the world with men—both are determined to succeed and each has very different reasons fueling their momentum.
Travel and outdoor adventures with my husband are also my passions. Between leading international adventure travel trips for the Colorado Mountain Club, personal travel, and my other career (i.e., banking supervision and accounting), I've been to about 100 countries and hiked or climbed in many of those. Some of my favorite through-hikes include the Tour du Mont Blanc, Scotland's West Highland Way, and England's Hadrian's Wall Path Coast-to-Coast hike.
