I am the grandniece of Sam Babb, the extraordinary basketball coach featured in Dust Bowl Girls.
An Oklahoma native, my roots run deep. Some of my favorite times as a child were spent on my grandfather’s ranch near Chickasha making hay-bale tunnels, fishing for bass, or traipsing through miles of pasture. I always had a skinned knee or a sunburned nose. There was nothing like the beauty of an Oklahoma sunset. At night, the only noises were crickets and wind.
Today, I live in Denver with my husband and our five cats. My outdoor adventures include hiking the long, rocky trails that wind through the mountains of Colorado.
Dust Bowl Girls is my first book.
