I love to write. My books are non-fiction "Pet Memoirs," about horses, dogs, and mules. After the dog book, I thought I would stop writing and enjoy riding my horse and mules, but in the meantime, I met a wonderfully funny and strong woman who was my neighbor. She was so entertaining with her numerous stories and I laughed so much and so hard, I went away thinking: This could be a book!
Her name is Kim McElroy and the book became*:* GIRLS CAN BE COWBOYS TOO*!* My first intention was to have it be about ranch wives who can do everything and anything between cooking, cleaning, castrating and breaking horses, BUT even with recommendations, I did not have enough of them. In asking for referrals I began to gather an eclectic bunch of gals who had two things in common: they loved the land and their animals. The land might be just ten acres and the animals just one cow, but the book began to take shape.
Another wonderful friend, Nadine Nel, went with me (and drove) as we traversed the Arizona country side to Wickenburg, Dewey, Skull Valley, and the Prescott area. Several came to visit me and a few were interviewed by phone, or wrote their own story. Some are more dramatic than others, but all are poignant in their own way. The stories are written as conversations, and told in the ladies' own words. It is easy to read and like a box of decadent chocolates, can be savored one by one.
The beautiful lady on the cover is Jane, and she shares her own story. This awesome picture was taken by Bev Pettit a professional photographer; she is also in the book. Because I have and love mules, maybe one of my favorites is about Eve and Ears who did the 2017 Tevis Cup in California. Now that is one brave (slightly crazy?) lady. This year she did it with her horse, and while an accomplishment, it was not like the mule ride. See for yourself!
