Description

Maggie Douglas was different than other girls her age. From the time she was 13 years old there were no dolls or frilly dresses for her. Instead Maggie could out ride, out rope, and out shoot her two brothers, father and hands on the Lazy D, her family's cattle ranch northwest of Kansas City, Missouri. But besting her brothers and father wasn't enough. As Maggie grew to adulthood she wanted to make a real difference in the expanding country around her. Striking out alone, going from Boston to Cheyenne to Deadwood, Maggie spoke for those who couldn't, or wouldn't, as a voice for the women's movement, a reporter for the Cheyenne Sun, or helping the Lakota at Standing Rock Reservation in Dakota Territory. Maggie would make a difference, but would it cost her everything?show more

About D L Rogers

Diane was born on "The Jersey Shore" and spent much of her youth on the beach, but for the past 20+ years she's lived in the Kansas City area. She currently resides south of Kansas City with her husband, horses, and a multitude of cats. She has two grown children and five grandchildren. She's always loved the old West and history of the Civil War. Her favorite movie is Dances With Wolves, an inspiration for the first book in the White Oaks Series. Having parents from both the "North and the South" and a cousin whose parents were reversed, they called each other "Yebels" as children and, imagined themselves, as children will do, 150 years ago fighting different sides of the war in their games. As a kid, Diane played "Cowboys and Indians" more than she did Barbie, and it comes through in her writing, as she relates stories of the struggle of common people and what made this country great. When Diane isn't working on her next book in progress, one can find her curled up on the sofa engrossed in a good book or watching and old western movie. She currently is employed as a legal administrative assistant at a major law firm in Kansas City. Diane would love to hear your comments. You can email her at: dlrogers2@peoplepc.com.show more
