I was left for dead at 17. I woke up in the hospital with no idea who I was. The doctor called me Victoria, named after the island where I was found with a traumatic brain injury. I was determined to find my family. My only clue led me to the Arches National Park. I wished upon a star and met Griffon, a local guide. We made an instant connection, but he was not what he seemed. Mysterious Shadow People who lurked in the park threatened my life. Were they real or the result of my recent brain injury? I am strong, I am brave, and I don’t back down from a challenge. I had already beaten the odds to live.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wrote this young adult fantasy book for my granddaughters. The adventurous main character embodies all of the things I love doing: hiking, exploring the national parks and photography.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Victoria is strong, brave and a little bit badass. I had already picked the name, Griffon, for her boyfriend and SPOILER ALERT before I decided that he would be an actual griffon.
I heard them coming, right on my heels, screeching in their strange language. I sprinted along the side of the gorge. I was in the marathon of my life. I skidded to an abrupt stop, teetering on the edge of a steep cliff. Beneath my boots loose rocks tumbled several hundred feet to the valley below. I turned around and estimated my chances. There were too many of them to fight off. They would shred me to pieces. Or I could jump. I made my decision and hoped that Griffon was right. I took three steps towards the threat, then whirled around and took a leap of faith. I hurled myself off the cliff.
