Author Trudy Baltazar understands life isn’t always fair, but that doesn’t stop her from doing the right thing when she can, even when that involves getting a new law established.  An activist at heart, Trudy saw an injustice and knew she had to do something about it. Although she prefers to work behind the scene in support of others, one case made the news, captivated her, and wouldn’t let her go. Through the process, Trudy learned how standing up for others without regard to race, religion, or status, can help break down barriers that keep humanity from becoming all it can be.

Trudy lives in Cottage Grove, Minnesota with her husband, two children, and grand daughter,  and continues to work full-time as an administrative assistant for a local, private company.
