About Rowena Portch
Multi-award-winning author for over 30 years, Rowena Portch is best known for her Spirian Saga, a nine-book series. In journalism, she has written numerous articles for distinguished publications, such as LiveStrong, Public Slate, Airbrush Magazine, Northwest Travel, and Guardian Liberty Voice. Her spiritual commitment to God is foremost in her life, but her heart belongs to her husband Gregg and guide-dog Skye-Bear. She has earned a Bachelors degree in business management and a Masters in computer sciences. She is only 16 credits shy of earning her Doctorate in natural medicine. Portch worked as a senior technical editor for Microsoft and Osborne/McGraw-Hill. Other professionals see her as an intelligent woman who learns quickly and follows through with commitments. Her true distinction, however, is her drive for learning. Her family and friends call her a perpetual student who hates wearing shoes.
In 1996, she lost her vision to Retinitis Pigmentosa. Her husband, Gregg is deaf so they make the perfect pair.
The beautiful horse I’m on is Belle. She and I had ten wonderful years to share before she passed on. She is the only horse I trusted to ride blind. She took great care of me and expertly led me through winding forested trails. We had many wonderful adventures together. She makes her appearance in Legend, Spirian Saga book 3.
She is a Malamute and the star of my Spirian Saga, although her name was changed to Maiyun to protect the innocent. 🙂
This dog has the best job on the planet. She gets to sleep most of the day, enjoys goodies from our clients, and she is my constant companion.
Next to my mate, Gregg, Skye-Bear is my best friend.
