About Betty K. Rodgers
 

Betty Rodgers was born in Salinas, California, where the Salinas Rodeo was a natural part of her familyís life. She has also lived in other regions of California, Maine, New Mexico, and for the past six years in Boise, Idaho.

Her father was an Air Force photographer at the end of World War II, and finding the bathroom periodically converted to a darkroom was a normal occurrence in her childhood home. A lifelong photographer herself, Betty has made this art form a priority since moving to Idaho where she explores western landscape and life through the lens of her camera. Her work is frequently shown in a variety of venues and resides in many homes throughout the West.

Also a great advocate for authors and the literary world, she publishes the Idaho Writerís Update, a free bi-weekly newsletter featuring Idahoís thriving literary community. Find more here on Facebook.

Betty owns BK Publications, a small press devoted to poetry and short prose. Among its publications are poet Janice Gilbertson's collection, Sometimes, in the Lucias and her chapbook, Riding In; and the late Vince Pedroia's collection, A Mano.

Her current passion is a documentary film project she and her husband, author Ken Rodgers, have made about Kenís company of Marines during the siege of Khe Sanh in the Vietnam War. Learn more about it at www.bravotheproject.com, and here on Facebook.

The film has been submitted to film festivals; the filmmakers seek a distributor to take the film to a national audience. The message of Bravo! Common Men, Uncommon Valor is timeless and speaks for all combat veterans, past, present and future.
