The guest is Scott Graham, who is launching the first entry in his National Park Mystery Series next month. The new book is called Arches Enemy and it’s set in Utah, not too far from Scott’s home in southwest Colorado.

The series features archaeologist Chuck Bender and Chuck’s wife, paramedic Janelle Ortega. The series, published by Torrey House Press, has already visited four other national parks in Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming, and California.

In addition to the National Park Mystery series, Scott is the author of five nonfiction books, including Extreme Kids, winner of the National Outdoor Book Award.

Scott is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys backpacking, river rafting, skiing, and mountaineering. He lives in Durango with his wife, an emergency physician.

Scott has worked as a newspaper reporter, magazine editor, radio disk jockey, and coal-shoveling fireman on the steam-powered Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.
