My focus on writing began when I was CFO and Managing Principal of OZ Architecture, one of Colorado’s largest architectural firms. Fifteen writing awards later I resigned from OZ to follow the yellow brick road, and ten months after that signed a contract for Soliloquy, a HOLT Medallion Award of Merit winner.
My next book, Fogg in the Cockpit, a military history co-written with husband Richard, earned a coveted nomination by the Air Force Historical Society for best WWII book reviewed in Air Power History.
What have I been up to since? Managing the 359th Fighter Group’s Facebook page, mentoring, graphic design, consulting with KGA Studio Architects, real estate management, and my responsibilities as Vice-President of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers. Oh, and more than a modicum of writing!
Coming in 2017: A Manifest Spirit, the 359th Fighter Group.
For many people the iconic B-17 bomber is the symbol of the U.S. Army 8th Air Force in the European Theater of World War II. Their missions deep into the heartland of industrial Germany helped turn the tide of war, but they could not have succeeded if it were not for the protection afforded them by the pilots of their long range fighter escorts. This is an account of one such American fighter group.
Coming in 2016: Misfortune Annie and the Locomotive Reaper.
When Annabelle Fortune, the fastest gunslinger in the wild west, inadvertently stops a stranger from attacking a train — and he wears a suit that enables him to fly! — the government believes she’s the only one to have seen the Locomotive Reaper and survived to tell the tale. Promising to find out what he can about her missing father, the Director of the Secret Service persuades Annie to swear in. Too soon, her detested nickname re-stakes its claim. Partnered with Beau Slokam, whose penchant for gambling leads them straight to the Doom Gang, Misfortune Annie guides the smooth-talking Southerner in a chase through the Rockies, with her Cheyenne friend, Wontoa, rounding out their unlikely trio. When Annie again meets the Reaper, his gadgetry proves far more advanced — and deadly — than even top scientists imagined!
