My Mantras

Below are the mottos I live by that have become so ingrained by repetition that they’ve become habits. My life has been profoundly enhanced by taking them to heart and living them:

Expect nothing.

Be grateful for everything.

Treat life as the great adventure that it is.

Do everything with love.

If any of you ever see me not living up to them, please tell me.

Thank you.

With love,

Russ

My first-ever western romance title is now available as an ebook!

Longshots of the Heart

A series of tragedies push a young woman to make a terrible choice: marry a man she detests to save her ranch or risk everything to keep her freedom. With time running out, a man nicknamed Longshot helps her to discover her own strength and run a brutal race for survival, but is finding a lasting love to heal her broken heart too much of a longshot?

With love,
