About the Author

My name is Briana and I’m 20 years old. I’ve been writing for about five years now, and have finally been successful in having one of my stories selected for publication. I mostly write westerns, but I also enjoy adding magic and mystery into my work. Hence the novel I’m writing about modern-day werewolves! I’ve self published two books, of which I’m very proud, and am about to begin editing the third book which is being published through Tate Publishing and Enterprises LLC. I live on a ranch in Colorado, and have been helping with the farming part for the last six or seven years. More recently my family gained a cattle permit in the mountains, and because of that, I’ve only just started riding horses for more than “trail rides”. In February 2013 I started writing for the Fence Post magazine as a monthly columnist.
Other than writing, I enjoy making candles and cosmetics. I also love to cook and bake, read, watch movies, crochet, make jewelry, decorate and paint my house, and go exploring with my family. I’m also an amateur archeologist and museum curator (my sister and I have our very own museum that is open to our family).

My goals in life are to:
1. Own a restaurant or bakery/cafe
2. Visit Ireland
3. Find a literary agent that will accept my work
4. Make a million dollars (Five million would be better!) 🙂
5. Have a nice sized herd of sheep and cattle, and some goats would be nice too.
6. Have a whole library of books I have written
7. Go around the world

8. Sing the national anthem at a rodeo

So there you are! I think I’m a normal girl, trying to achieve her dreams. I’m glad you took the time from your busy day to visit my blog, and I hope you liked it!

  1. Thank you so much for following my blog! Anything I can help you with, let me know! I think it’s great you know yourself so well at your age. I certainly wasn’t, although I do want to visit Ireland (it’s in my blood, along with chocolate ;P).

    • You are most welcome! And yes, chocolate is the key to bliss 😛 Well, one of them anyway 🙂 I heard my hubby perked you up and helped out after your distasteful experience from someone else. I really hate it when people don’t offer constructive criticism and are so subjective in their opinions. Anyway, anything artsy, fartsy, fire away! 😀

    • Hello again! Yes ma’am, Charles has been a big help to me. Meeting him here on wordpress has been just about the best thing that could have happened to my writing. And as a matter of fact, I’m re-writing my first chapter with his suggestions and the suggestions of another author who offered to help. He is a very talented author. And you are an equally talented artist. Thank you both so much! 🙂

  2. Briana – just wanted to let you know I read The Night I Walked Off Of Boot Hill on the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it! Lovely book, very likable characters, and very intriguing! I’ve written a review on Amazon, under the nickname HelenKid – the story behind my nickname is too long and boring to state here but just wanted you to know it was me. 🙂

  3. Briana, lovely blog and I sense that you’re a strong young woman who will achieve many of her dreams and goals. Thanks for visiting my blogs and following along. I’ll be following you too!
