About The Author

I live in a rural area in Oklahoma. I am a fan of the professional bull riders and follow their events. I have raised cattle along with my husband for many years. This is where I got my idea for writing my stories about bull riding. I support our local 4-H and FFA programs. My children were part of these programs during their years in school as well as my grandchildren. I have spent many years raising cattle in my community.
