Deanna Dickinson McCall writes about the West with settings in both the past and current day. Deanna has cows, horses and a love of the land bred into her, coming from a family that began ranching in Texas in the 1840s. She has ranched in several western states, including 22 years raising her family on a remote Nevada ranch without phones or electricity. She now ranches with her husband in the Oklahoma hills.

Her writing and performances have won numerous awards: The Will Rogers Medallion Awards, the Georgie Sicking Award, NM/AZ Book Awards, Women Writing the West, Western Music Assoc, The Academy of Western Artists, the Texas Poets Gathering Heritage Award, The Della Johns Scholarship, and The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Wrangler Award.
