A Quick Note . . .
Wrangle is the title of my novel -- set in Texas quarter horse country in the 1970s when races were on dirt tracks and winning meant more than a purse to the ranchers.

Wrangle won the 2015 Will Rogers Silver Medallion for Western Romance. Read more under the Wrangle tab of my menu, above.
