Hey Partner, Let’s Talk About Cowboys #WesternWednesdays #PaperbackHeroes

The cowboy is one of my all time favorite heroes.  From the ranges of the old west to the deepest, darkest parts of space, the cowboy is a hero for the ages.   My love of cowboys was one of the reasons I started writing my Fevered Hearts, Space Cowboy, and now my Lone Star Leathernecks series. Grab your copy today! Cowboys have mystique that pervades the American culture. Their legendary status of the cowboy riding off into the sunset is as iconic as the days gone by of the old west where they rode.  Real cowboys did exist, their reputations […]

As I sat down to watch the fourth season premiere of Heroes: Volume 5, I was struck by all the reasons I keep coming back to give this show another chance. This season is about Redemption. When the show debuted a few years ago, my husband and I were glued to every episode. We would discuss, dissect and enjoy each and every episode as the characters were inexorably drawn into each others orbits. Peter Petrelli and HRG were definitely my favorites. Both were men with personal missions and convictions. HRG began creepy, but his love and support for daughter Claire […]
