The Cowboy and Miss Austen

I just found out that my short story, The Cowboy and Miss Austen, has been accepted for publication by Inwood Press for its Small Hours anthology. I wrote this story years ago but it’s one of my favorites (a dude-ranch cowboy finds solace in Jane Austen’s books when a guest at the ranch dumps him), so I’m thrilled that it has finally found a home. Yay! It goes to show that perseverance often pays off!

      Thanks, Beverly! That is a very kind thing to say. I think of Kelly everyday–as you probably do also–and she continues to be my inspiration. Take care and enjoy the summer!
