Interview with the heroine from Cowgirl Trail by Susan Page Davis:

1. Maggie Porter, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I’m one of few women to head up a cattle drive. I believe we completed the first all-woman cattle drive ever.

2. What do you do for fun?

I ride my horse. I also enjoy doing things for our workers and their families—cooking, sewing, and playing with the children.

3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it?

Writing letters—I have too many interesting things to do, and I don’t want to sit still for long.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

Being left alone. I lost my mother, and now my father isn’t doing well. I have a few loyal friends here at the ranch, but if all of our cowhands leave, I don’t know as I’ll be able to make a go of it.

5. What do you want out of life?

Someday I’d like to have my own family, but I’d like to also bring the Rocking P back to the thriving ranch it was ten years ago.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

God and family come first for me.

7.  Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?

I do, but lately I have been too busy. When I was with my mother during her illness, I read dozens of books. I like novels, because they transport me away from the harsh realities of this life.

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I’d not be an only child. My friend Carlotta has several siblings, and I always think they are having a marvelous time together. I wish I’d had some sisters and brothers, too.

9.  Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

My “pet” is my horse, Duchess, whom I got about ten years ago. She’s past her prime now, but I love her. Even if she’s done as a working horse, she’s still there to give me a pleasant ride and some company.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

I’d love to go back to my childhood, when my mother was alive and my papa was strong. I miss those days, but I hope that God will give me strength to go on with the friends who love me, and maybe give me a husband to partner with on the ranch. I hoped at one time that Alex Bright would figure into that dream, but now I’m not so sure.

  2. I used to ride horses a lot when I was younger and I miss having a horse!
    Maggie sounds tough but has a tender heart. Love stories with animals in them!

  3. Thanks, Mary and Jennifer! I love horses too. Right now my kids have two, a black Tennessee Walker and a roan “mutt” we refer to as “the donkey,” but that refers to her personality, not her lineage. They have a lot of fun with them.

  4. Sounds like a great book..love this genre! angadair@nwcable.net

  5. Sounds like an interesting book! I’d love to read it. 🙂
