Springtime with Calves and Books

Angus calf with cowAs part of our livelihood, my husband and I raise purebred, registered Angus cattle. The majority of our calves are born in January and February, so by March these babies are playing in the pasture. It’s so fun to watch them run and buck. One calf gets started and all the others bust a move, releasing all that energy that comes from mama’s milk, sweet grass hay, and spring sunshine.

And what’s happening with the books? I’m thrilled to tell you that HUNTING HOUR has been selected as a finalist in the Colorado Book Awards mystery category and in the RT Reviewers’ Choice Awards for best mystery. I couldn’t be happier for this book, which began as a project of my heart. I know this sounds crazy, but it’s almost (although not quite) like having one of your kids recognized for an achievement. I’m so happy that others love Mattie, Robo, and Cole about as much as I do!

What’s happening in your neck of the woods this spring? I love hearing from you.
