You can imagine my surprise when I was introduced to another Otter Tail County native who writes western fiction. I met Wrangler Award Winner D.B. Jackson at the Western Writers of America Convention last week. Turns out he is well acquainted with the area where my novels are set. After all, we are both from Otter Tail County, Minnesota. He was born near Pelican Lakes. We had a nice chat about the old stomping grounds. I’m in the middle of reading his latest book, UNBROKE HORSES, and am enjoying it very much. It reminds me of Cormack MacCarthy’s writing. No wonder it was honored with this year’s Wrangle Award, a most prestigious western award. Maybe you should look up D.B. Jackson’s books. I know I will.
