I live an incredible life in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness. I hope to share my life with you and talk about Kodiak wildlife and the beautiful, and sometimes challenging, environment in which I live.
I have a master’s degree in fish and wildlife biology and have worked the last 30 years as a wildlife-viewing guide on Kodiak Island. I am currently writing a book about the wildlife of Kodiak Island, so many of my blog posts will be dedicated to wildlife facts and news.
My husband and I own and operate Munsey’s Bear Camp , a hunting, fishing, and wildlife-viewing lodge. It is a small lodge, and we only accommodate six people at a time, but these small groups are perfect for viewing wildlife, especially when we hike up a stream and sit quietly on the bank watching Kodiak bears chase and catch salmon.
Our lodge is our home, where we live year-round with our two cats. We experience the breath-taking beauty of a sunset on a perfect July evening, and the raging 100 mph winds of a stormy January afternoon.
Wildlife biology is my first passion, and my second is writing mysteries. The first rule of living in the wilderness is to embrace solitude and solitary endeavors. Writing is the most solitary of endeavors, so it is perfect for me. Mysteries are what I like to read, so mysteries are what I write. I currently have one mystery, Big Game, published in 2012 and available at Amazon Kindle. My second novel, Murder Over Kodiak, was published in April, 2016.
Please join me on my blog and interact in the discussion. I look forward to meeting you, learning about your life, and sharing mine.
