BA Tortuga - All Romance feature

o, I grew up in East Texas. Now, my hometown is totally cotton country and one hundred percent rural, or at least we were back then. I was a teenager before we got a Walmart, the fairgrounds was the biggest thing besides the cattle auction and the cotton mill, and there was a one screen movie theater on the ‘drag’ that ran Coal Miner’s Daughter for a record eighteen months when I was a kid.

BA: City Country is the tale of Emmy and Cotton and is the first in the new Roughstock Sweethearts series, which exists in the same universe as the m/m Roughstock series and the upcoming Top of the Leaderboard series from Totally Bound.

BA Tortuga - Author Spotlight feature

Unless someone lives the Western lifestyle, they have no idea how many times someone has asked me, “What on earth do you get out of going to the rodeo?”

BA Tortuga - Exclusive author interview

Why have you chosen to set this series around a professional bull riding league?

Believe it or not, I’m writing what I know in this case. One of my brothers rode bulls, I grew up in a ranch, and I’ve probably been to fifty or more professional bullriding events in the last ten years.
