Although I live in the State of New York, which is so different from the vast open prairies of Montana and Wyoming where my story A FIND THROUGH TIME takes place, I have always loved the West and the people whose struggles and perseverance has had such a great impact on our lives today. If not for those first pioneers who traveled across our great continent in search of a new life, if not for the people who fought for what they believed in, who struggled to preserve their way of life and sacrificed everything in the name of progress, we would not have moved on to become the society we are today. It is from their blood, sweat, accomplishments and sometimes their deaths that we have learned and grown.
I hope you enjoy reading A FIND THROUGH TIME as much as I enjoyed living it though the eyes of Two Moons, Roy and Gabrielle.
