Alice V. Brock learned to love western books as a child when her father brought home a Louis L’Amour paperback western and she fell in love with the cowboys galloping through those pages. Mr. L’Amour’s books and TV shows like Gunsmoke, Rawhide, and Bonanza brought the west alive. The history of Texas and the old west is full of stories of those times and it is Alice’s wish is to bring them alive to the kids of today.

Her chance to see cowboys in action finally came when she married and moved to her husband’s family ranch in Iola, Texas, where she watches the grazing cattle from her kitchen window. Her grandchildren are now the fifth generation to live on the Brock ranch.

The old west has not disappeared and Alice has made it her mission to bring real people in history back to life in her books.
