and Nevada before her 13 years as a reporter and then metro columnist at The

exonerate five men, prompted reforms on evidence preservation and was a finalist
for the Pulitzer Prize in investigative journalism. Her 2012 project, “The Gray Box,”
exposed the effects of long-term solitary confinement. She has been honored in
recent years by the ACLU, Society of Professional Journalists and Colorado Press
Association for her civil rights coverage and First Amendment work.

and co-owner of the Rio Blanco Herald Times , a weekly newspaper in

fiction novellas.
