Remembering A Legend

If you're a fan of westerns, then I'm sure you've read Louis L'Amour. During his lifetime, he published well over a hundred books, and his novels continue in popularity today. His stories have also been made into some marvelous made-for-tv movies and mini-series. Who can forget The Sacketts with Sam Elliott, Tom Selleck, and Jeff Osterhage. Back when I first started writing westerns (I started out writing straight westerns, then later moved to romance), Louis L'Amour was one of my personal inspirations.

On Monday, July 20th, Mr. L'Amour's son, Beau, will be blogging about his father over on Petticoats and Pistols. If you're a fan, and even if you're not familiar with his work, I hope you'll drop by there and see what the son has to say about his legendary father.


Edit: it appears P&P has taken down the guest blog announcement. Don't know if that means it's off, but I'll find out and let you know.


  1. Mmm, are you trying to get me into westerns, before I embark on my challenge book Devon? ;0

  2. Glynis, I'm not holding out too much hope where that old Zane Grey novel is concerned. LOL! But, yes, I'm all about the westerns. Just look at my banner. ;o)

  3. G'day Devon;
    I've always been a great fan of L'Amour's work and will be over at P&P when I get back from the Pine Pass on Monday.
    I like to have my own work contain some history (even if its only a little bit) while striving for something as entertaining as L.L
