What Readers Can Expect From a Cathy McDavid Book
by Cathy McDavid, author of Her Surprise Cowboy Groom
Cowboys, of course. And horses. When I say I owned them most of my life, I’m not kidding. I was one of those little girls who begged their parents for a pony. What they gave me was riding lessons. My mom finally relented when she realized riding wasn’t just a phase I was going through. Only instead of a pony, I got a horse. A gorgeous, all black American Saddlebred named Torno. In my mind, he resembled the black stallion from the Walter Farley books I’d read as a child and we flew over the fences.
In college, my interests would change from English hunter/jumpers to western. Especially trail riding. I must have covered over two thousand miles of Arizona mountains. This time, I imagined myself a female version of Jim Craig, the main character in the movie A Man From Snowy River. I also spent a little time driving a carriage — that was fun but hard work and requires a completely different skill set.
We not only owned and rode (or drove) horses, we bred them and raised foals and trained them. Not just horses, either. We had donkeys, mules (horse mother and donkey father), and a hinny (donkey mother and, in this case, a pony father). In addition, and besides cats and dogs, we had chickens, ducks, goats, a pot-bellied pig, and the occasional rabbit or two. I loved every minute of it.
Where am I going with all this? Well, when I write about cowboys and horses and trail riding and carriage driving and all that stuff, it comes from personal experience. I try hard to write the western elements in my books from an authentic place. It’s true, I’ve never ridden a bull or roped a calf — though I have practiced roping with a fake calf. I’ve also never competed in endurance riding or raced horses. But I have watched all of these many times and interviewed the competitors. And done my research. I hope what I write immerses the reader in the details and makes them feel like they’re there, right in the middle of the action.
So, what can a reader expect from a Cathy McDavid book? I hope a true cowboy and western experience. Well, and a sweet and tender love story. I do write romance, after all.
