Anna Faulk, Owner

I love living in Colorado and experiencing what Colorado has to offer. I river raft, hike, bike, snowboard, cross country ski, and spend as much time on a mountain as I can. I also love to read and sit in the sun! I edit young adult novels as a hobby, working with my high school friend turned author, Casey Hays. My husband and I love to spend time with friends and family. We often travel around the country to catch up with our people. We love adventures, especially river rafting. And we love a fun happy hour!
