First of all, I can't wait to tell you that the Honey Beaulieu - Man Hunter series won four Will Rogers Gold Medallions for Western Humor. FOUR! I'm still hyperventilating. And the first book in the series won Chanticleer's Laramie Grand Prize. It's such an exhilarating and at the same time humbling experience to win such prestigious awards and to know that someone else loved these characters as much as I do.
Now that that's out of the way, here's a little about me. I'm a former software designer, campaign manager, deli clerk, and cow milker, but always a bookworm. Reading is my passion--westerns, fantasies, mythologies, and historicals of any era, all with a dash of romance. If an author can make me laugh, I'll buy every book he/she ever wrote.
While I'm a country girl by birth, I currently live in suburbia with my very patient husband who is also my IT Guy. I don't think you can ever take the country out of a girl's heart. That's probably why many of my stories often take place in Idaho where I grew up. (Hearts of Owyhee series, the second Honey Beaulieu book, and some of my novellas and short stories, too.)

Why the Pickle Barrel? Because in the Old West, the pickle barrel was prominent in the general store and that's where people would hang out and gossip--so the Facebook of the late 1800s. Yep. That's how it was. We do have fun at our version of the pickle barrel, so join us!
