Writing and Research

DurangoColorado author Joyce B. Lohse combines journalism and genealogy skills with a passion for American Western History to preserve accounts of people, places and events from the past. Her award-winning all-ages books give new life to pioneers, such as Silver Queen Baby Doe Tabor, Railroad Builder General William Palmer, Adventurer Unsinkable Margaret “Molly” Brown, Doctor Justina Ford, Educator Emily Griffith, Miner and Developer Spencer Penrose, Colorado’s First Governor and First Lady: John and Eliza Routt, and others.


Joyce Lohse’s western history research goes far beyond books, articles and internet sites. The author visits historic sites, mining districts, museums, archives, and cemeteries, to find historic objects and images, data, records, and written accounts. When combined with award-wining writing skills, her books transport readers back in time.
