Texas In Tennessee

The ranch in Round Top, Texas that the Westlake Group invested in years before, first mentioned in Book 1, Fool Me Once, doesn’t actually raise Texas Longhorn cattle but the logo for Round Top Ranch lends itself beautifully to having longhorns along the top of the “T” because Longhorns are so synonymous with the state of Texas.

In Book 2, A Bitter Wind Blows, Luc, Ronnie, Rickie, Andee and her husband, Frank, travel to Texas for a weekend at the ranch, and spend a fun day at the Riverwalk in San Antonio.

The RTR ranch gets a mention at the end of Book 3, Signs of Life, but plays a much larger role in Book 4, Ride A Pale Horse, which features Stephanie Deschaines, Luc’s daughter, as a main character. Imagine Stephanie’s surprise when she returns to Tennessee for a visit with Luc and Ronnie and encounters…a Texas Longhorn…in a neighbor’s pasture. (Actually, it’s the ground she encounters when her horse is as startled by the sight as she is…and does what horses do!)

Book 3 was recently completed and is awaiting its first round of edits with The Wild Rose Press. Book 4 is the current work in progress.

Have completed four Contemporary Fiction/Romance novels in The Riverwood Series. The first was released in August 2018; the second is under contract and in the process of edits. The third book and fourth books are in the queue. The fifth is now the current work-in-progress. The setting is Big South Fork, Tennessee which is known as "The Trailriding Capital of the Southeast" so these stories will all appeal to horse lovers who love to read books about horses.

One thought on “Texas In Tennessee”

  1. I know about meeting a longhorn for the first time when on horseback! I did a super quick dismount while my startled horse thought he was going to be eaten alive! I had to walk him back to the trailer, which wasn’t far, thank goodness, with him prancing all the way! Yep, horses are definitely fright and flight animals. The next week when I rode there, the longhorn was up by the fence so I introduced my horse to her and didn’t have a problem riding past her.
