>6) Tell me about your latest release - It's a traditional love story titled Mountain Romance. A lonely drifter comes upon a young woman lost on the prairie of the Old West. They are total opposites, but somehow they find love. But along the way they spend some time in a cavalry jail, tangle with a dangerous outlaw and meet a friendly ghost.
Tease us with a blurb or short excerpt -“I’m afraid not, sweetie,” he said as he loomed over her. “My name is
Jack Logan. And when Jack Logan sees something he wants, he usually
“Not this time, friend.” Mattie heard Red’s voice behind Logan; her
heart beat faster. “The lady’s with me.”
Logan turned around slowly to look at Red. Once they faced each
other, Logan slowly pulled the tail of his coat back to reveal a Navy Colt
in its holster. Then he carefully slipped the thong from the trigger.
Others in the store quickly assessed the situation and took cover or
headed out the door.
“She was with you, mister,” Logan told him. “Cause in less than a
minute, you won’t be around to claim her.”
If Logan expected his bravado to frighten Red, he was disappointed.
“I don’t want any trouble, friend,” Red said. “But the lady’s made her
feelings plain enough. Why don’t you and me find us a nice saloon and
have a beer or two on me?”
“Shut up!” Logan snapped. “Her feelings are gonna change once this
is all over.”
His hand flashed down to the gun on his hip, but the barrel never
cleared leather. Red’s Colt was already aimed at his heart.
“Use it or drop it,” Red told him. “I leave it to you to decide whether
7) or not this is a good day to die.”

10) What are you working on right now? It's sequel to Mountain Romance. Quite a few people wanted to know what happened to Red and Mattie when the first novella ended so I thought a while and decided.
11) Your biggest piece of advice to aspiring novelists? Keep writing! I know it isn't easy, but ignore those rejections and continue to submit your work until you find a publisher that appreciates it.
