Trinco's love for children's stories began when she was a child herself in Minot, North Dakota. After every visit from the Bookmobile in summertime, Trish and her sisters would settle under their family's big willow tree in the backyard to read each exciting new story. Trish continued to nurture her writing skills in creative writing classes and by working in her local library while in high school. She attended Brown Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota, studying radio broadcasting. Throughout the years Trish enjoyed opportunities to interact with young readers as she worked in the broadcasting field in cities across the country including Minneapolis, San Francisco, Dallas and Denver. Trish lives in Colorado Springs.
