Hello Readers, I’m Linda Gilman, a historical western romance author. My zodiac sign is Gemini which means I’m always busy doing something. A relaxing day for me isn’t sitting in front of the TV eating myself into the next size in jeans. I have a husband, three grown sons, two daughter-in-laws and five grandchildren. I live with a crazy Golden Doodle named, Dory. She’s an hour-long people greeter, that’s a warning for anyone that comes to visit my home. My hobby is barns. I’m crazy about barns.
When I want a break from writing, I like to go on what I call “Barn Storming” trips. My husband chauffer’s me around the countryside while I skillfully shoot pictures of barns from our car going at about 60 or 70 miles per hour. Needless to say, some of my photographs are blurry. I couldn’t be a western writer if I didn’t drool over men wearing cowboy hats, no shirts on and great muscles (That’s really why I really write westerns). Laughter is the potion that heals misery. l love ‘Wild West’ quotes. They are so witty and funny and most have more than a ring of truth to them. Such as:
- Life is short and full of blisters.
- A lasso is not a dating tool.
- Never let your yearnin’s’ get ahead of your earnin’s.
- It doesn’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.
Happy Read to you all, and here’s wishing you many laughs.
