Editing Completed for A Cowboy Who’s in Love

I have completed the final editing of A Cowboy Who’s in Love, my collection of poetry exploring love from the point of view of a working cowboy.

The collection is divided into four sections, alternating the long time tradition of storytelling rhyme in cowboy poetry with free verse. Each section presents a different perspective of the nature and effect of love in a cowboy’s life.

The strong influence of the natural environment of the West plays heavily in these poems, which are meant open a window into the interaction of love and life, exposing a cowboy’s experiences, heartaches, joys, hopes and fears.

I am currently in the query process for the manuscript.
