Ed Quillen was the author or co-author of 15 books, including the upcoming Deeper into the Heart of the Rockies. He entertained Denver Post readers for 26 years as a regular contributor to the Perspective section, where he wrote about history, politics, water issues, computers, and small town living. He founded Colorado Central Magazine in 1994 with his wife Martha Quillen, and they published it for 15 years. He also regularly wrote for High Country News and his work appeared in various other publications, including Colorado Homes and Lifestyles, the Los Angeles Times, and Utne.
