The Contrary Cowgirl

The Contrary Cowgirl says...

"Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many."


I decided a long time ago not to age gracefully. I'd rather live life to the max! And when it's my time to go, I want to skid sideways into the grave, body worn out, whiskey in one hand, reins in the other, yelling -

"Ooooh, baby, what a ride!"

Summer 2015

Dearest Friends,

2015 is flying by finding most of us enjoying the warmth of sunny summer days. I am blessed to be in Montana right now but it's hard to stay in front of my keyboard when it's so nice outside. Right now I'm preparing to perform at the Montana Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Lewistown, MT. August 13-16, 2015.  Please come down and enjoy the work of the finest entertainers from around America and Canada. I'm honored to be included in this years gathering and will be performing daily.

More good news! My novel, "Bad Draw," is nearing completion. (I know some of you can't believe that!) This is the first in a series revolving around a ranching and rodeo family in Rush Springs, OK. Greed, betrayal and murder conspire to keep Liam Michaels from getting to the NFR. All the while, his mother is desperately trying to keep her past involvement with the mafia from destroying the ranch and everyone she loves. Chutes open, oil pumps and blood flows from New Orleans to Calgary on one wild ride to Las Vegas.

"Inside a Cowgirl Heart" is compiled and ready to go to press. This collection of poetry, tall tales and vintage photography is sure to bring a smile to your face and a tear or two to your eye. Look for "Inside a Cowgirl Heart" in early August in my Gallery, in book stores or online at Amazon books.

The Gallery is now OPEN, Yippee!! As always, you can commission artfully framed, custom poetry paired with your photographs for a gift, memorial or recognition. I am now offering a line of greeting cards that include my whimsical style of poetry! Check out the Galley, just hit the navigation bar on the left of the screen or click here  

Stay healthy, be well and live in peace.
