Last Wednesday Susie and I flew from Fort Wayne, Indiana, to Mesa, Arizona. How we love this area of the country! Right now the temperatures are in the mid 60's to mid 70's. We're only here until next Saturday, but we're thankful for any time we can spend in Mesa.
While we're here, I'm recharging my writing batteries by absorbing more history and scenery that I can use in future stories. I mentioned in an earlier post that I'm currently working on a picture book, but I still plan to write another middle grade (or younger) western series--this time set in Arizona instead of Texas. I'm also about ready to dust off the grown-up western I started too many years ago. I promise, I'll do everything in my power to give you stories that you'll think were worth waiting for.
Meanwhile, last Saturday morning an old cowboy, named J.C. Hulsey, interviewed me for his Wild West Showdown radio program. J.C. owns Outlaw Publishing, one of the top western publishers in the country. The interview is featured on show # 144. Here's the link to the show: www.blogtalkradio.com/wildwestshowdown/. Check it out!
Well, that's all for now. Susie and I are heading out to explore more of this beautiful country.
