California Dreamin’: My Cowboy Hero

Never mind that I was born and raised on the East Coast: cowboys are my weakness. When I was growing up, if you wanted to see a man who spent his days and nights in the saddle the way I longed to, then you watched western series and movies on TV. I fell in love repeatedly. My first cowboy love was Clint Eastwood in the show Rawhide, a love that was reinforced by the spaghetti westerns he made with director Sergio Leone (For a Fistful of Dollars, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly; For a Few Dollars More).

Life and Love in the Old West + Giveaway

“by Jody, a Dedicated Reader” Howdy. I’m here to kick off a series about Western Romance. Each article features a different WR author and a favorite character from the author’s books. Make-believe reporters will interview the characters, offering glimpses of life and love in the Old West. But first let me tell you why I swoon for cowboys.
