"Any Other Family"
Eleanor Brown is a Highlands Ranch literary gem, one we love seeing when she pops in at the library. In her latest book, she tackles the subject of open adoptions and blended families with beauty and sensitivity.
Ausma Zehanat Khan
Having already checked human rights lawyer and editor-in-chief off her list, Ausma Zehanat Khan decided to realize a life goal of becoming a mystery writer. Her new series, set in Colorado, is as timely as it is twisty.
"The Dating Dilemma"
On the lighter side, romance author Mariah Ankenman’s "The Dating Dilemma" sparkles with wit and a hunky (and nerdy) Denver firefighter in need of a fake girlfriend.
Mary Taylor Young
Mary Taylor Young bought a cabin in the ‘90s where she could watch bluebirds. Over the decades she noticed less wildlife visiting and had to worry about wildfires more. Still, she infuses "Bluebird Seasons" with wonder and hope.
"The Hound from the Pound"
For the kiddos (and dog lovers), Douglas County is home to Jessica Swaim, whose book "The Hound from the Pound" features a dog adoption that goes hilariously, and charmingly, off the rails.
