I love flitting between "country" and "chic", or as chic as I'm going to get. Growing up on the Denver/Front Range gave me a lot of country and chic to flit around in. I think it's the best place in the world to live. We have wide-open spaces & cramped downtown high-rises, mountains & plains, lofts & ranches, bistros & barbecues, symphonies & rodeos. Plus, the best outdoor playground any man or woman could ever want.
I flitted between country and chic in my first two books. My first book, Cowgirl Up! is about all things country - horses, dogs, trail rides, cowboys, chaps, boots, and vets. My second book, Scared Hitless is about all things chic - trendy women, vacation homes, mountain resorts, boutiques, boating, and Lemon Drop Martinis. These books embrace the best of my two worlds.
Included in my worlds are my family, friends and pets. I live in Broomfield and I have a gorgeous view of the Rocky Mountain Range and the Flatirons above Boulder. I see my old high school classmates and horse pals on a regular basis, and my best friends, kids and grandkids live within a few miles of my house.
I'm a free spirit; a "glass-is-half-full" kinda gal, and forever a hippie at heart. My favorite skirt is my Mudmee wraparound, and I have my old love beads and Lennon sunglasses in my cedar chest. Along with my cashmere gloves, cloche hat, Calvin Klein handbag, old quilt, Parelli horse halter, and a hand-made hackamore bit from my grandfather. See what I mean? I will always be a woman who flitters between country and chic - a Colorado native and proud of it!
