How long have you lived in Peakview County?
All my life–born and raised. I grew up on my parents, Gary and Ann Anderson, ranch. It’s right next to the Walker Horse Ranch where I live now with my husband, Luke, and my son, Bronco. I left for four years of college in Chicago, but I don’t think my heart ever left.
Tell us about how you and Luke met.
Actually, I don’t remember the first time we met. We were probably two or three years old. I remember that he was in my kindergarten class. I have the picture to prove it 🙂 We were friends (kind of) our whole lives, but it wasn’t until his mom passed away when we were like twelve, that we really became close. He needed a friend and I was there. I fell in love, that is if I knew anything about love at 12. We dated all through high school, but broke up when I left for college. He stayed on his dad’s ranch. I planned on staying in Chicago, but when I came home for the summer after graduation, I realized I still loved him and life here.
What do you do for a living?
I manage The Peak Adventure Camp. We give disadvantaged kids from the city a chance to get up in the mountain and enjoy the great out of doors. Escape for a short time from their not so perfect lives. We do lots of horseback riding and hiking. It’s very rewarding. It’s a great job, I can take Bronco to work with me. He loves it there. And my hours are flexible.
What is the best thing about living in Peakview?
There are so many. For me, it’s home. All the residents here are like one big family. There’s nothing our neighbors wouldn’t do if we needed help. And of course, both sets of Bronco’s grandparents are close by. That a plus. Along with Violet and Howard, who are like another set of grandparents. We are very fortunate. You should stop by. I bet you’ll love it as much as I do.
Introduce yourself to our readers.
My name is Ethan Charm. I’m fifteen years old and going to be a sophomore at Mountain High School in the fall.
How long have you lived in Peakview?
Just about a year. My mom and I moved here from Nebraska last summer when she got the job managing Sam’s Hardware Store.
How do you like Peakview?”
It took me awhile adjust. At first I wanted to go back to Prairie where I was born and raised, but I soon discovered that life here in the Rocky Mountains could be pretty great. Especially after Mom and Jake got married and we moved out to his ranch. I love it out there. I’ve got my own horse, several cats, a dog, some goats. It’s the life.
What do you do for fun?
I’m a runner. I run cross country and track for the Mountain High Mustangs. Running is a sport that you have to practice all year long. I rarely take a break. I have asthma so I need to keep in shape. The altitude was hard when I first got here, but I’m hoping to do better this fall. I like to hang out with the other guys on the team and my girlfriend, Lindsee. I am learning roping now that I have my own horse. Maybe someday I’ll compete. Jake is also teaching me to fly fish.
It sounds like you keep busy. Anything else you want to tell us about Peakview?
It a great little town. Everyone is friendly and nice. If you love the outdoors and don’t mind snow in the winter, its a great place to live.
The wait is over 🙂 Book ten of the Peakview Series, Mountain Cowboy, is now available at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DX7526t . You don’t want to miss this one. Here’s the blurb:
Thirty-six year old horse trainer, Tex Ranger, prefers horses to humans. His new job at the isolated Walker Horse Ranch is exactly what he’s looking for—no females to create drama in his life. He’s had enough of that.
Twenty-four year old, Mary Meyers, lives to travel. When a rock climbing accident in Central America forces her home to her parents’ ranch to recuperate, she can’t wait to heal and get back on a plane to her next adventure.
The sparks that fly take them both by surprise. They have nothing in common except their fear that falling in love will destroy their dreams.
But dreams change . . .
COME HOME TO PEAKVIEW, COLORADO WHERE EVERYONE HAS A CHANCE AT LOVE.
I know you are going to love the cover as much as I do. A special thanks to the amazing photography of Chad Chisholm, and the handsome cover model, Ken Mcnickle. Ken was one of Cosmopolitan’s 50 sexiest men in 2012. If he looks familiar, you may have seen him on season 33 on Survivor. Anyway, I was thrilled to have them do this awesome photo for my book.
Download your copy today, and I’d be forever grateful if when you’ve finished reading you’d go to Amazon and leave me a review. Your feedback is so important to my work.
Happy Reading 🙂 Jill
Welcome, introduce yourself.
I’m Ethan Charm. I moved here to Peakview with my mom last fall. I’m fifteen and a freshman at Mountain High School.
What activities are you involved in?
I’m a runner, so I’m on the high school’s cross country and track teams. At first it was hard running at such a high altitude with my asthma, but I’m getting more use to it now. The elevation is much higher than where we came from in Nebraska.
How do you like Peakview?
It’s great. I’ve made a lot of friends. Everyone is very down to earth and friendly. I like being at a rural school. Now that mom and Jake are married, I love living on our ranch. We have so many animals. I love them all, but my favorite it my cat, Carrie. I was there the day she was born. She was the runt of the litter, but what she lacks in size, she makes up for in personality.
What are you doing for the summer?
I help Jake around the ranch and I’ve been working part time for Jerry at Heart’s Haven doing some repair work and trimming of trees and lawn stuff. I like it. It’s good to be outdoors in the mountains in the summer. In my spare time, I like to fish and hang out with the cross country guys. We have practices all summer, so running continues. I’ll go back to Nebraska for a couple of weeks with my dad, but I’ll be ready to come back. This town really does feel like home.
