Ever wonder about the adventure in the Colorado mountains? Red Gold takes you on a fun ride of overflowing adventure and mystery surrounding the High Country Safari guest ranch. Mandy Phillips will risk everything to protect her guests and her land.
My husband and I have lived in Colorado for almost thirty years. We love the mountains, the adventures we find ourselves on, the places we can explore, the back country four-wheeling, it's endless in this state.
We always dreamed of what it would be like to own and operate a guest ranch here, but we never found a way to make that dream a reality. Being a writer, I finally found my way.
The idea for the book developed with a lot of expansion on what all could go wrong... My husband is a wonderful person to brainstorm with, so we spend a lot of time coming up with various things for the characters to go through.
We also put a lot of miles on our four-wheel drive vehicle which will take us into places most people can't get to. And a few maybe we shouldn't have gotten into. But being able to see so much of the hidden beauty that God created in these mountains is such a fun blessing. We love to explore, and I love to share that with my readers.
I love to develop characters with lots of issues they have to learn to deal with. And when they discover they need the Lord to get them through those struggles, they come more alive on the page.
Red Gold is a real page turner. It keeps you going since so many things keep happening. It's adventure with old mines, wildlife, four-wheeling, mineral thieves and kidnappers. All handled through faith in God. Hope you get a chance to read it and enjoy the ride.
