About the Author

Betty Hayes Albright has been writing poetry since she was ten for the sheer joy of it. She has lived her entire life in the Pacific Northwest, surrounded by majestic mountains, Puget Sound, rivers, lakes, and forests.
Growing up in an era where doors were left unlocked and children were "free-range", she and her friends were allowed to play in the thick woods and vacant lots of the neighborhood. Her parents were avid gardeners, and she too learned to love nurturing anything that grew from the ground - especially trees.
Nature has always been an integral part of Betty's life, and over the years she has become its voice, which often whispers in her ear. She frequently writes of Mother Nature, or "Gaia" (from Greek mythology), and she has been the champion of Native Americans and all cultures, which practice a oneness with nature. Her poetry and short stories have been published in several small magazines, along with one chapbook in the 1970's.
Betty and her husband, Dave, recently moved to southwest Washington, close to the Columbia River and not far from Mt. St. Helens. She has one son, two stepsons, three wonderful daughters-in-law, and six grandchildren. Her younger son, Arlie, passed away a year ago at the age of 44.
