Short Stories, recipes and cowboy lore

My hard drive is full of word-documents.  I couldn’t possibly find one to post for my ego.  Hence, I write.  And I write a lot.  Some of what is mere, crap! (Thank you Hemingway!)

Hopefully, I won’t bore you with the later.  I write because I love to write.  Not to pay the bills.

The boring tidbits: I am a mom, (a good mom when I’m not confined in close quarters with the trolls), I ranch in Northern Wyoming (which gives me a grandiose sense of humor), I’m a rotten at spelling and a romantic. (Contrary to my writing.)

I write about life, people and sometime a horse or two. I post weekly, occasionally throwing in a splash of my work in progress here on The Comedy Of A Cowgirl and here on Cooking For Cowboys.com.

I am polishing up my latest middle-grade fiction novel, “Big Horn Catchmequick,” about a young lady, a disfigured horse and their passion to win.  Be watching for updates on twitter.

My writing is not all about horses, thank God!

I continue stretching my writing muscles and am comfortable writing across multiple genres: middle-grade fiction, historical fiction and nonfiction.  More of my writing prompts are witnessed on my videos on YouTube.

I never intended to make anyone laugh while reading my work.  The humor is there, though, however serious I am, nor how serious the topic that I choose to tackle.  My work often becomes a laughing-matter once I get my pen involved.

Time and again, my serious prose takes a circus-like detour before completion. (I cannot prevent this no matter what music I play in the background.)

 comic relief (uncountable)-  1. (narratology) The inclusion of a humorous character or scene or witty dialog in an otherwise serious work, often to relieve tension.

    I discovered the fun of writing comedic stories whilst taking a sabbatical in Spain. Since then I have written five books, which I have never attempted to foist upon agents or publishers because I know that they are far from mainstream. Instead I have published on-line via LULU.com. Amazingly some people have actually bought my books, and, more to the point, have enjoyed them. P.O.D publishing isn’t perfect, but at least it’s publishing.

      That is great! Thanks so much for replying again. I will take a look at LULU. And yes comedy is a very different sale to pitch.
