Kim R's Stories

"Years ago when a blizzard cancelled our New Year's Eve plans, I entertained myself instead by popping in a VCR tape of what my young son called "The New Cowboy Show". The episode happened to be "The Home of the Brave" and one look at Buck Cross was all it took. I was hooked. Some years later I discovered, to my great surprise, a group of like minded folks online and something wonderful called fan-fiction. They are all fantastic characters, but I write primarily about Buck, with some Kid and Lou, too, and try to write for emotional impact and character growth."
