Faculty

Kameron Claire

Kameron loves building worlds where heroes and heroines push, pull, and fight their way to the love and happiness they deserve. As a third-generation veteran, she believes anywhere can be home, but has spent most of her life in Colorado and Arizona, which are just as much a part of her as her wanderlust spirit. She’s traveled to many corners of the world, but has so many places she still needs to see. When not writing, she’s tackling remodeling projects around her home, seeking out new travel adventures with her gypsy friends, or snuggling with her four-legged son.

She’s been a member of Pikes Peak Writers since 2013, attended her first writers conference in 2014, and started volunteering in 2015.

Torie Fox

Torie Fox-Phillips is a Business Intelligence Analyst, more commonly referred to as the “Report Guru” at a local bank headquarters in Denver, CO. An aggressive multi-tasker by day, and a social moth by night, she either traverses the world, or ignores it entirely, with her husband and small army of pets. When she’s not writing, or re-writing, or re-writing the re-writes, she is devouring books of all genres. With her main inspirations being R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps series and the TV show Supernatural, most of her stories have a horror twist of some kind – but she’s really a lovely person. Really.
