South Dakota author Robyn VanDerSys will discuss her books and writing process during her visit to the library.

In VanDerSys’s first book 75 Miles, Samantha finds herself stranded 75 miles away from home after an EMP decimates infrastructures and the power grid. With the help of family friends, she arms herself with a revolver and supplies then strikes out to hike home. Seeking a direct and safe route, she chooses to cross the Black Hills Forest, but quickly discovers it’s neither. 75 Miles is the first book in the series followed by 100 Miles. Black Hills Fall is also available to check out at the library.

Robyn VanDerSys was born in Washington State, which is where her love for the great outdoors was born. She has lived in several different states and has now settled in the Black Hills of South Dakota with her husband and kids.

Her life has consisted of one adventure to the next, including racing monster trucks in her early twenties, raising three strong children, riding around Mexico on her four-wheeler while living out of a backpack, driving a school bus for a living, and volunteering on a chase team while her husband raced the Baja 1000.

She spends her free time off-roading and hiking the many trails of the Black Hills, and also enjoys traveling and having as many adventures as humanly possible.
