To answer a couple of remarks and/or questions:
Indeed, the Rockies are beautiful. They are at their best in Canada, I think, where both Banff and Fernie as picture-tale places.
And I do my writing in English and have a publisher in the US.

Welcome, Nickie! I love to ski also though my budget does not allow for much. The last time I went it was in Zell um See (sp?) in Austria. Beautiful. I think it killed the Rockies.

Congrats on the three books. Would you share their titles so we can check 'em out?

I'm also a teacher btw. Elementary here in the states. It is fun, isn't it?

Hello Alisha! The spelling of that place in Austria is Sell-am-See. Indeed, it's a great place, but if you ever have the chance you should visit Scuol in Switzerland. It's not well known, but the village has a bunch of farm houses dating back to the 16th century, and I have actually lived in one for a while (I had a great friend there, whom I used to visit regularly.)
Also, I haven't said too much about my books because I don't want to spam. But since you ask, the first one is called "Maria Gonzalez", the second one is "The Haversham Legacy" and the most recent one is book one of "The Medici Diamonds: Diamonds for the Devil".
