a native of Colorado and a first-generation American,
I instinctively look west. All
my life, layers of blue mountains have shaped my horizon, and the
endless prairie ends at my home in the foothills of the Rockies.
Sometimes my mountains are swathed in snow, sometimes
they're dry and desolate. But
they're always enchanting. They
dictate our wind and our weather. They
magnetize and electrify our lives.
They hold a promise of riches and are a great equalizer.
They are unforgiving.
They are fragile.
stories are shaped by my landscape.
Whether I write of Regency England or Boulder, Colorado or places
and spaces in between, I retell the myths born out of living in a land
of little water and great beauty. I do believe the landscape of the mind is formed by
one's physical landscape, and therein lies the soul of my tales.
