I live in beautiful Colorado and love the mountains.  My favorite place to visit is Frisco, Colorado.  From my grandmother’s cabin on Bill’s Ranch, I can see Buffalo Mountain, which brings me a sense of calm.  Dillon Lake is in this picture and it is the water source for Denver.

Even as a kid, I loved to read, such as J.R.R. Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings and S.E. Hinton’s books, especially The Outsiders, That Was Then, This is Now and Rumble Fish.  As an adult, I enjoyed reading J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and Heather Graham books such as Krewe of Hunter Series.

Another favorite past time is traveling.  In Italy, I saw castle and places of torture which gave me ideas for a paranormal story.  These pictures are from a small medieval town in Italy called San Gimignano, and this is my second time that I have visited it.  As you can see, I fell in love with this place.

Below are pictures of Salem, MA.  With the history and haunted tours, I found it to be fascinating.  Martha Corey and Bridget Bishop were two women hanged for witchcraft.  I stayed at the beautiful historic Salem Inn reported to have a ghost, but I never saw one.
