Write What You Know

I'm on Petticoats and Pistols today talking about taking a walk on the wild side, away from Western Romance, to a mystery story. But I won't stay on the wild side long. It's scary over there.

Granddaughter Update

Oh, what the heck, I'll give you a break and smile.

Once more, but my heart's not in it. Oops, slipped and let every one see a real smile.
And I was being so cool before.

Blah! There, that's to remind everyone that I am far above it all and not in the mood to pose.

Gargoyles in Texas

You know, we talk about interesting tidbits that have crossed our paths while doing research and it’s hard to explain exactly what rabbit trail we were following when we came upon a topic that made me think, “Hey this would make a good Petticoats and Pistols topic!” Such is the topic I’ve picked for today. Gargoyles.

Montana Rose Cover

I just got the go ahead to use the final cover for
coming in July from Barbour Publishing.
Left pregnant and widowed in the unforgiving west, Cassie is forced into an unwanted marriage to rancher Red Dawson.
No decent man could turn away from Cassie and leave her to the rough men in Divide, Montana. Red Dawson does what he must, joining his life to a spoiled, snooty woman. Now he’s got to keep her from killing herself with her efforts to be helpful, and prevent her attempts to be a good wife from leaving his ranch in ruins.
And while Red struggles with his overly obedient but badly incompetent wife, an obsessed man plots to make Cassie his own, something he can’t do as long as Red lives.
A new series begins.
Montana Marriages Series--Book #1
Montana Rose—A suspenseful, historical-western, romantic-comedy.

Fun family.
And Sarah has her own blog which I've been keeping up with.
Wait, bad grammar. I mean, with which I have been keeping up.

With which up I have been keeping.
