How long have you been writing?
It’s rather cliche, but I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. My first book was in 2nd grade for a school project and I wrote about a leprechaun who fell off a rainbow.
What was the most challenging part about writing Dust?
Writing about a place I had never been to – Wyoming. Eventually we moved here and that’s when things started speeding up. It’s beautiful country out here and certainly a place that needs to be experienced if a writer is going to attempt to do it justice.
What do you enjoy the most about being an author?
I love doing Meet The Author events and being able to inspire writers who come to them. Most recently, I did a book tour in Sheridan, Wyoming and had the opportunity to encourage two young writers to continue pursuing their craft and not be intimidated about finding a publisher.
Is this book part of a series?
That’s the plan. I’ll be spending much of this summer writing the follow up novel to Dust and then there is a third to cap off the trilogy.
Do you have any works in progress?
Oh tons! I have the follow up to Dust and then the third novel of that trilogy floating around in my head and I have another project that’s completely different that I will eventually get to that is a paranormal comedy.
About the Book
Author: Beaux Cooper
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Some people seek marriage counseling; others find wisdom in horse manure. Austen St. Johns has taken up a shovel.
When her marriage transitions from blushing newlyweds to people who merely co-exist, Austen realizes perhaps she’s responsible for her misery.
Desiring change, she leaves Oregon for the open plains of a Wyoming ranch where she discovers through love of self how she can save her marriage.
Beaux Cooper is a writer, explorer, and wife. Much of her writing is pulled directly from life experiences, revelations, and lessons which seem to come in spurts if given enough time to formulate. As a fresh transplant to the bluffs region of Wyoming from her home state of Oregon, Beaux has grown to appreciate just how small she really is compared to the rest of the earth.
Wyoming skies can do that to a person.
Beaux craves adventure, travel, and fish tacos. She hoards knowledge like a magpie after carnival and watches entirely too much British television. Surprisingly, Beaux’s weekends are filled with all things quintessentially Wyoming: national parks, cattle brandings, rodeos, and the Oregon Trail. But only because she seeks them out.
Beaux shares a household with her husband, two dogs, and two cats – in no particular order.
