Q: If wishes were horses and beggars could ride, what kind of horse would you ride?
A: We own 14 horses, so I’d pick one of them, a quarter horse or a paint. I prefer red duns, a peachy-red color. I have an old mare, Fawn, who is my favorite, and Cinnamon, the young replacement horse.
Q: What celeb would you like to run away with?
A: Vince Gill! That voice! Those eyes! And he’s funny as all get out. I was heartbroken when they took him off as host of the CMAs.
Q: Do you work on more than one story at a time?
A: I work on anywhere from one to three stories at once. If I get a little stuck, I change. Invariably, this clears my head, and I can figure out the hole or block on the other.
Q: If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be? Would you write orread there, or do something else?
A: I've answered this before, but I would go close to home, to the Colorado Rockies, on a horse camping trip. I would do a lot of riding, some reading and nap!
Q: If you were a t-shirt, what would you say?
A: A friend asked me this for a blog, but I think it bears repeating.... Cowgirl Up! I think that says it all. When you get knocked down, get up, get back on and move out.
Q: Describe a perfect non-writing day.
A: Herding cows with my dad on a fall day, when the sun is glinting off the red and gold aspen leaves. Working my dogs, riding a good horse. Or trail riding with my daughter, taking the dogs, roasting hot dogs over a fire. Nothing better.
