First, I'm an avid reader, mostly of history, and have always thought more should be said about the settlement of the western United States. Hearing a lot of stories told by elders as a child in Oklahoma prompted me to begin writing a western of which I couldn't help but lace with the factual events of the times I knew so well. Thirty years of writes and rewrites later Legend of the Dawn was born. Huh, I guess the rest is history. Good luck Karen, I wish you well. JRW (less)

“I can normally tell how intelligent a man is by how stupid he thinks I am.”
Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses

“The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.”
Tom Clancy

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

“Ask yourself these three questions, Tatiana Metanova, and you will know who you are. Ask: what do you believe in? What do you hope for? But most important - ask: what do you love?

... I know who I am, she thought, taking his hand and turning to the altar. I am Tatiana. And I believe in, and hope for, and love Alexander for life.”
