                    About the Author
 
From the time I can remember, I wanted to work with animals.  I obtained a degree in wildlife biology from Auburn University and landed my first job as a zookeeper at the City of Montgomery Zoo in Montgomery, Alabama.  I later worked at Grandfather Mountain in Linville, North Carolina as the Animal Habitat Manager.  I saw how visitors were enthralled with zookeeping and my job caring for the animals.  That’s why I wrote my zoo book The Animals of Grandfather Mountain: An Animal Caretaker’s Tales.
 
I now live in northwestern Wyoming with my two horses, three dogs and husband near Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and am continuing my writing career.  My recently completed novel, Colter’s Hell, is a supernatural thriller set in Yellowstone National Park.  I am in the process of looking for an agent and hope to see the novel published soon!
 
When I’m not writing, I’m riding my Tennessee Walking Horse, Quite a Sugarfoot.  We enjoy endurance riding in the American Endurance Ride Conference (AERC) and are doing great in a sport where the majority of horses are Arabians.  We do limited distance 25-30 mile rides as well as 50 mile endurance rides in the mountain region, which encompasses Wyoming, Montana, Utah, South Dakota & Colorado.
