Authors that were local favorites include mystery writer Margaret Coel and non-fiction author Helen Thorpe.

The Hall wanted to share this quote by Legacy inductee Clive Cussler to any writers looking to get into the habit of writing. "Writing is a job - I entertain my readers. I get up in the morning, and I start typing. Saturday and Sunday don't mean anything, they are perfect days for me to write on. And, if it ain't fun, it ain't worth doing."

The Hall strives to educate the people of Colorado and the country about the stories of the authors who shaped their works using their personal presence and the environment of our State with courage, leadership, intelligence, compassion, and creativity. It wants to include authors who've made a major impact on others with their words to make sure their legacies never die.
