Michelle R's Stories

"I've been a fan of the show The Young Riders since it debuted in 1989 and have remained a fan through the years. I love almost everything western (horses, cowboys, wide open spaces, rodeos & music, etc.). My favorite character's are Lou and Jimmy and of course love any of the episodes or stories that have to deal with them. And for all of those wonderful authors out there in the TYR world, keep up the GREAT work!!"
