A love of words and an appreciation for the power of language has been a life-long passion for Kayt Peck. Her career as a writer has included journalist, public affairs officer in the Naval Reserve, novelist, playwright, screenwriter, and a long-time career as a grant expert/writer having raised over $30 million for public and nonprofit organizations both domestic and international. Peck’s goal to lead a full life has given her diverse fodder for her work. In addition to growing up on Texas farm and ranch, she is a longtime volunteer firefighter, currently serving as assistant chief for her department, and was a long-time New Mexico Search and Rescue volunteer. She currently has seven novels in print with Sapphire Books, and she is a two-time winner in the Rocky Mountain Voices playwriting competition. Three of her novels were finalist in the New Mexico/Arizona Book Competition.
