Route 66 Program:

The members of my writers’ critique group are working on Book #2 of our Route 66 Anthology, and we’d love to talk to your group about the history of “the Mother Road”. Are you a writer? You can read our writers blog, WordsmithSix, here.

Cowboys and Cattle Program:

Coming soon in the Fall of 2020, my book KEEP ‘EM FULL AND KEEP ‘EM ROLLIN’, is about the great cattle driving era, chuck wagons, and authentic cow camp recipes. I’m working on the power point presentation which will include Charles Goodnight, his chuckwagon design, his first cattle drive, and life on the trail. If your group or club is interested in this topic, let me know. There are no program fees for public libraries located in the Texas Panhandle or for local organizations in the Canyon/Amarillo area. Travel expenses are appreciated for groups or clubs outside the above mentioned area.

Let’s Write!

Also, I LOVE talking about writing! I have several programs suitable for all ages.
