Author’s First Novel at 59 Years Old
Vegan Cowboy: The story of what happens when a single, vegan mom in her late fifties finally follows her intuition.
“Why not?” replied Carol. “This story has been inhabiting my mind for years, just waiting to come out. I finally got my act and conscience together.”
A vegetarian for 21 years and vegan for over 4 years, Carol had a driving desire to expose factory farming and educate omnivores about their food choices. “There are scads of non-fiction vegan books: cookbooks, the how’s and why's of becoming vegan, but so few novels exist where the protagonist is a vegan or the story involves animal rights issues. I believe that most people love animals – I want to break down that emotional barrier that’s been erected between animals we consider pets and those we consider food.”
Vegan Cowboy tells the story of Rae O'Brien, a single mom in her late fifties raising her teenage son, and Granger Bowden, a third generation cattle rancher who becomes a vegan and converts his ranch into an animal sanctuary. A near tragedy brings Rae and Granger together, changing their perceptions of family, love and aspirations.

“...Filled with heartwarming insight and wisdom on finding the love of your life at any age, I wanted this book to go on and on.” -- Colleen Holland, Associate Publisher of VegNews Magazine
