I live in Boulder, Colorado, next to the Rocky Mountains. I grew up hiking in the foothills and love it when I have the time to spend an afternoon hiking, watching hawks and eagles fly or enjoying the beautify of wildflowers. There’s nothing quite as majestic or breathtaking as the American West, and I’m very lucky to have spent most of my life here. I have two young adult sons — Alec and Benjamin — as well as a very old pet bunny named Wubbit. Most of my days are spent writing or doing research.
