Velda Brotherton

Author Velda Brothertonabout this book: Cimarron Rose existed as a legendary outlaw during the reign of the Doolin/Dalton gangs in Indian Territory. In 1896 she disappeared into history, almost as if she'd never existed. My husband and I began to dig for more information and involved our local librarian, who became as intrigued as we were.

She found some interviews with family members and stories that had been left out of the legend, which was bigger than life. So, all these things were filed away in my computer for the day I would write the book. Other book projects came and went and then along came Kindle. After uploading all my back list I began to wonder if I could write an original story specifically for Kindle.

This novella began for a specific publisher and when he decided not to do the project, I wasn't sure what to do with it. Planned as a novella, which I'm not very experienced in, I decided to finish it and upload it to Kindle. Thus Legend of the Rose came to be. It's not as long as my other western historical romances, just under 40,000 words, but I think I captured a possibility of what may have happened to Rose and who she really was.
