Nancy and Bobbi chat with Western fiction series author Jim Christina regarding his newest novel, A Long Ride to Morning. This is the prequel to his Hunter Tales series, and in this book we meet two of the series’ main characters as young men, Bobby Malloy and Jeff Stryker. This is their coming of age adventure. Beginning in Waco, TX their journey takes them to New Mexico and Arizona Territory. In addition, we talk horses, tack/gear, historical accuracy, and more!

Some of our questions:
*Where does this book fit in with your others?
*How did you come up with these characters?
*What is it about the West – and particularly the Arizona Territory – that interests you?
*Why this time period – 1880-1900?
*Tell us about the Circle J Ranch – it appears in several of your books.
*Tell us about your favorite Appaloosa, Roseman, the inspiration for the book, Requiem for an Appaloosa
*What are you working on next?
