Hello and thanks for stopping by today. I’m a writer living near Fallon, Nevada with my cowboy husband and our three kids. I specialize in writing about the agriculture industry with a focus on cattle ranching. My column, Real Life Ranch Wife, appears monthly on Western Horseman. I also regularly contribute content to CavvySavvy.
Click the “Published Articles” tab for links to my previously published work. My articles have consistently placed in the top three in the Nevada Press Association’s Better Newspaper Contest in Explanatory Journalism and Entertainment Writing. A poem I wrote won the Viewers’ Choice Award in a 2015 National Cowboy Poetry contest, and I have been featured on HumorWriters.org as the Humor Writer of the Month.
I’m currently working on a memoir about falling in love with a cowboy and committing myself to a future filled with rutted dirt roads, cowboy hats on the kitchen counter, and more moving boxes than I care to count. It’s a modern day cowboy love story set in the American West, complete with breathtaking sunsets and bucking broncos. It features cowboy hats, boots, spurs, rodeos, quiet country nights, and tall green meadows.
There is also cussing. And crying. A lot of loading moving boxes into horse trailers during a rainstorm. There’s a first kiss, a break up phone call, and three trips home from the hospital with a newborn baby. I can’t wait to share the completed book with you all!
Before I began working on a book manuscript, I spent over a decade writing news and feature stories about the ranching industry. Here are a few publications where my byline has appeared.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
