Cowboys and Cattle Drives:

Beginning Spring 2021, I’ll be talking about my book KEEP ‘EM FULL AND KEEP ‘EM ROLLIN’. The power point presentation will cover the great cattle driving era, Charles Goodnight and his chuck wagon, life on the trail, and the food they ate. If your library, group or club is interested in this topic, let me know.

Fees: There are no program fees for public libraries located in the Texas Panhandle or for local organizations in the Canyon/Amarillo area.

$100 honorarium for programs outside of my immediate area, plus travel expenses are negotiable. Call me. We can work out something.

Power point for 700 on finding story ideas and fiction vs. nonfiction. Wonderful group with lots of great questions!

For Schools: Let’s Write!

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

*Where do story ideas come from? Secrets authors use to find inspiration and craft stories.

*Crafting a story from beginning to end using an idea generator exercise. Let’s build a story spider.

*Cattle trails and cattle drives. I love talking about Texas history. 

FEES: $200 per day for as many sessions as you need. I am very flexible, and will work within your school’s guidelines and schedule. 


Flash and Christie are #1!

Congrats to Flash, your favorite rescue horse, and his owner/trainer Christie, who took a 1st place win in the horse parade at the Cowboy Symposium in Lubbock, Texas! FLASH is the inspiration behind several of my books.
