A Celebration Back at the Ranch

Book Cover for Gran Quivira Rustler

"Gran Quivira Rustler " is now available from Amazon.com

I am having a quiet celebration this morning. My first romance novel was published yesterday at Amazon.com. It seems I have waited for this most of my life.

On a working ranch there are down times when you are waiting for something. It could be as simple as waiting for the sun to come up or waiting for a calf to make its appearance. As a child, I would use my down time to read and to scratch out stories in my unreadable handwriting.

As a pre-teen, my mom brought home an old manual typewriter. I actually fell in love with all of the buttons and would sit at that typewriter for hours. I had finally found a way to make my chicken scratch readable and thus, my true desire to become a freelance writer was born.

With the invention of the word processor, and later, the computer and the internet, I could live back at the ranch yet explore the world without leaving home. I found several avenues to express my thoughts and ideals by way of freelancing. Though I enjoy writing my articles, there has always been the dream to write novels.

It is with profound pride that I have published my first romance novel, “Gran Quivira Rustler.” It went live January 4, 2012 much to my satisfaction and personal delight. Now, I have the inspiration to continue my second novel, “Hostage Hearts” and hope to publish it before the end of the year.

Here is hoping to lots of waiting time during the upcoming year so that I may continue what I love while taking care of things back at the ranch.
