In her own words: Some of my favorite things in life are camping with my dog, Ruca, writing (a lot) and also reading to Ruca. There’s nothing we can’t do! We are an unstoppable adventure! Could you imagine? Writing your own adventure and then making it happen? That’s the life right there. Chasing sunsets, summits and sunrises. Eating breakfast burritos along the way, always chasing that Colorado Sun.
