I love writing Western novels. Who doesn't love Louis L'Amour? Every day I write continues that tradition.
So far I have published 7 Westerns and I am working on two more.

The bucking horse and rider seen on the Wyoming state license plates is one of the best-known bucking horses of all time . "Old Steamboat" is said to be the horse behind this icon. Old Steamboat was born on the Foss Ranch in Wyoming in 1894.
His owners say he bucked from the time he was a colt. In 1898 after several unsuccessful attempts at breaking the horse, he was sold to the Two Bar Ranch. The top Two Bar bronc rider stayed on him for about two seconds.
An injury created an obstruction in his nose, and from that point on, whenever the horse went to bucking, they say he whistled like a steamboat. He thus became known as "Steamboat, the whistlin' hoss."
"I'll teach you how to know when to use a firearm. It ain't, boy, any time you get yourself all pissy. It ain't when you're angry. It is when you're hungry for venison. It is when someone is killin' your ma, your brother. It is when the fellow in front of you is fixin' to take your life."
--Foster Smith from "No Time to Trust"
But the West of the old times, with its strong characters, its stern battles and its tremendous stretches of loneliness, can never be blotted from my mind.
--Buffalo Bill Cody
