Bronwyn is a nurse by day and writer by night. She is married to a fellow food and wine lover and wrote a wine blog for three years. She is published in academic journals, which was the impetus for choosing an alias when she self-published her first novel. The name Rohret Buchner is derived from the maiden names of her grandmothers. She has raced sailboats at more than 9,000 feet, savored the best that grapes can offer, and owned a hockey team. She lives with her husband in Denver where she is inspired daily by the majesty of the Rocky Mountains.
