I'm Kit Prate. I grew up in a small town in Illinois called West Chicago; a great place where people never locked their doors and where the neighbors watched out for each other and all the children. Consequently, we had to work very hard to get into mischief without getting caught. In my case, it was pretty easy. I was a tomboy. I fished, I hiked; I explored acres of open fields, carrying my own Red Ryder BB Gun. My favorite playground was just west of town; the stockyards. It was a wonderful world. Horses, cattle; real cowboys who tended the livestock and who allowed me and my best friend-within reason-free run of the barns and the corrals. And so began a life-long love affair with all things cowboy. History, fiction; great movies without computer enhanced special effects, in other words, open country. Years later, when I was working as a subcontractor for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, I had the opportunity to rekindle that love. There was nothing better than a weekend on horseback riding through places like Monument Valley, the hill country in Texas, the deserts in Arizona, the vastness of the Sioux reservation; or the same country where Billy the Kid rode, and ultimately died. I don't write history. I write western fiction; what could have been. Stories of strong men and women who survived the best and the worst the West had to offer. All in all; it has been a great life. Especially with four kids tossed into the mix. Every day is a gift, and a surprise. Visit me at: http: //kitprate.blogspot.com/
