I had the honor and pleasure of sitting down for a chat with Craig Johnson, the author of the wildly-successful Longmire books upon which the Netflix series are based. He lives not too far from me in the thriving metropolis (population 25) of Ucross, Wyoming. We did the interview on Facebook Live video at “The Ox” aka The Occidental Saloon in Buffalo, Wyoming, the real-life “Durant” from his novels. He’s got a new release coming out within the next week called Depth of Winter, and I’m looking forward to it. His is my favorite interview to date, not only because he is warm, genuine, and funny, but also because he’s my own personal favorite author.

Off-air conversation trivia: Craig once stayed at Snowheresville, our cabin on the eastern face of the Bighorn mountains near Sheridan, Wyoming, with his wife.

Find out which character in the series led Warner Brothers to film the show in the interview on the Facebook live, on Youtube, or for audio only, on Soundcloud.

Meanwhile, my husband Eric has the week off, which we spent on home maintenance projects, but not before we indulged in a trail ride at Rosebud Battlefield National Park in Montana. <3 <3 <3 A buffalo jump, ancient pictographs, gorgeous scenery and weather, the company of my parents with us, a sand hill crane swooping by us as he skimmed the grass tops, and lots of history. Maggie and DEAD PILE languished this week, but that’s okay. We enjoyed temperatures down in the 30s at night, a visit from our Amish friends to paint our barns red, and a mountain lion sighting on our one-mile-long driveway.

Check y’all later.

    This was fun! I’ve never read his books, but he seems so nice, like a great person to spend time with. My husband is OBSESSED with his show. If he didn’t have 10 books on the nightstand to read I’d go buy him one of these.

    Okay, y’all. You already know I overshare. Sometimes for a laugh, sometimes because I feel it’s important not to keep what might help other people to myself, even if at the expense of Eric’s or my dignity 😉 I’ve been hinting for awhile that I had some new stuff to share that might be a [...
