The Chroma…

SUBMITTED January 2015
BY Dal about Ansley’s “The Chroma”


You might remember Ansley Ray…but probably by a different name. She’s worn more than one  moniker while commenting on this blog. Last year she started her own personal blog about the treasure hunt called, “Up A Cold Creek Without a Paddle”. It has delightful  tales about her dusty adventures looking for Forrest’s treasure and wonderful pictures of important wild places that will make your eyes water with eagerness. But her blog is not what I am writing to tell you about. Ansley has just authored her own novel based on the chase. It’s called “The Chroma”.

This is the perfect time to delve into literature about the treasure hunt as we patiently pause for spring to catch up with our wanderlust.

Note the blurb from Forrest on the cover. Looks like he read it and liked it. Since it’s my job to learn about Forrest I already ordered my copy and plan on enjoying it as I coast off to sleep for a few nights…my favorite place to read novels and escape the hazards of the workplace. How can I possibly find his treasure if I don’t know the literary likes and dislikes of the guy who hid it???

Here’s an ad that might just turn your mind toward the book…


I just want say that I have been in communication with Ansley for about three years now as she’s been chasing Forrest’s treasure. She’s no slouch. To raise gas and lunch money to search her spots Ansley held garage sales and often slept in her car when out searching. She’s tough, she’s savvy and she’s got a lot of Chutzpah. She’ll put the money from the book sales to good use…so if you can afford this novel I hope you’ll buy and read it while waiting for the snow to melt. That’s what I’m going to do.

You can find the book at Amazon:
