    Tombstone Picture Gallery

    Recently my husband and I took a day trip to a small town in southern Arizona called Tombstone. You’ve probably heard of it, being the history buff that you are. However, even though I’m a native Arizonan, I’ll admit that I wasn’t always into history, and when my high school team traveled to the tiny town of Tombstone a million years ago, I didn’t realize its significance or the contributions the events of those days made to the cowboy stories that are so prevalent today. I’m happy to say that I now know better, and our recent trip gave me an even greater understanding of that time period in this…

    Welcome to My New Website!

    Hi! Welcome to my new website for my BRAND NEW PEN NAME! I’m so excited to be writing historical Western romance. I’ve been writing semi-professionally under my real name, Laura L. Walker, for four years now and have eight contemporary inspirational books, along with a few short stories that appear in anthologies, under my belt. It’s been quite a ride! But now it’s time to turn back to the past. I have enjoyed reading authors of historical Western romance such as Mary Connealy, Karen Witemeyer, and Erica Vetsch for a long time. Earlier this year, I completed a three-book series that was specifically written for a niche market, and I…
