About our In-Studio Guest, Jim Christina :
Not much about me is pertinent...I am an avid equestrian and used my Appaloosa horse as the model for Horse. The Hunter now also rides a pinto horse named Bandit and he is also my horse...I like to put my horses in because I know their personalities. I am also a living historian of the Old West and constantly strive to put every part of my knowledge into my writing. I travel to Southeast Arizona regularly, specifically, Tombstone and Bisbee are my favorites. Every bit of tack I use in my everyday riding is authentic to the period of 1840-1890 from my half-seat drovers' saddle to my replica 1859 McClellan and gear along with the weapons I own including a brace of Colt revolvers, an 1873 Winchester Border rifle in 40-44 and an 1892 Winchester carbine in .45 LC.
I write to tell the stories that have been swimming in my brain for a lot of years. I hope that as you, the readers, get into my books you'll enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
Jim Christina is the author of exciting, page turning, engaging novels set in the West. He has been a frequent guest on Around The Barn and we always look forward to hearing about his latest title. Dark Angel , released earlier this year, is his newest.
