David M. Jessup writes from Sylvan Dale Ranch, an historic working dude ranch in Colorado owned and operated by his family since 1946. Here he introduces cattle and horses to guests, and guests to the ways of the West. He loves raising grass-fed beef, preserving open space, battling invasive weeds, catching wild river trout on a fly, singing cowboy songs, and telling stories about the American West—some of them true. Autographed copies of his debut novel, Mariano’s Crossing, can be purchased on his website. It will be distributed to bookstores and on-line retailers after November 26, 2012.
His lovely wife, Linda Jessup, is founder of the Parent Encouragement Program in Maryland and grandmother extraordinaire. Her writing includes poems and parenting advice, and together with her husband, blurbs about their favorite books. They love to hear comments from folks who share these passions.
