o, I grew up in East Texas. Now, my hometown is totally cotton country and one hundred percent rural, or at least we were back then. I was a teenager before we got a Walmart, the fairgrounds was the biggest thing besides the cattle auction and the cotton mill, and there was a one screen movie theater on the ‘drag’ that ran Coal Miner’s Daughter for a record eighteen months when I was a kid.
Jen: Today we welcome B.A. Tortuga back to Romancing the Book. B.A., will you share a short bio with us?
B.A.: Texan to the bone and an unrepentant Daddy’s Girl, BA Tortuga spends her days with her basset hounds and her beloved wife, texting her sisters, and eating Mexican food.
Joyce: Welcome to HEA, BA! Please tell us a bit about your new release, City Country.
BA: City Country is the tale of Emmy and Cotton and is the first in the new Roughstock Sweethearts series, which exists in the same universe as the m/m Roughstock series and the upcoming Top of the Leaderboard series from Totally Bound.
Why have you chosen to set this series around a professional bull riding league?
Believe it or not, I’m writing what I know in this case. One of my brothers rode bulls, I grew up in a ranch, and I’ve probably been to fifty or more professional bullriding events in the last ten years.
