Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?

I spent five busy days at the Romantic Times Convention in Las Vegas last week, and it was so much fun! Mr. Jackson Young performed a private concert sponsored by awesome military authors Elle James, Susan Stoker, Desiree Holt, and Donna Michaels. We raised over $500 for Operation Troop Aid, an organization which bundles care packages to send to deployed US troops.

If you’ve ever seen me in person, you know that I wear a purple cowgirl hat. It’s my branding, and people recognize me easily, so I don’t mind dealing with hat hair! When I meet new-to-me readers, I ask if they enjoy reading cowboy romances.


So many people commented that they hate to see cowboys disappear. They see them as a “dying breed” nowadays. Too bad, isn’t it? But there are cowboys out there, and I’m excited to write more stories about them.

Help me keep cowboys alive by coming up with some new professions for cowboys. We’re familiar with ranchers, rodeo cowboys, and billionaire Texas oil tycoons. What other jobs can romance writers give cowboys!

Save a cowboy today!

    Lawyers, country singers, models, actors, authors, Cowboy Dom (even an owner of his own club), doctors, veterinarians, firemen, police, military, pilots…. hope some of these help. 🙂

    Personally, I prefer they just be cowboys on a ranch.

  3. Firemen, police, private security, rodeo organizer. Lacombejc has suggested lots.

  4. Fire Fighters, Police, Singer, Military, Artist (painter, Sculptor), Bodyguard, Forrest Ranger, Veterinarians, Search and Rescue, Paramedic, Nurse Practitioner, Rodeo Clown, Criminal Investigative Agent (CSI, NCIS, FBI) Profiler( For FBI), Troubleshooter(takes care of problems for a government or oil company), Author…….any of these would be good, an artist could make something handcrafted like saddles, cowboy hats, boots, knives or ropes. My imagination went crazy…..LOL

    Some Cowboys are volunteer Firemen in their communities. They farm and Ranch. Some are mechanics, as they have to keep their machines running. Race Horse Trainers, ie Bob Johnson; Photographers, Ie Larry Larson; Sculptors, ie John Lopez. Horse Breeders ie Gary Johnson; Oh Randi, we could go on and on…..

    From my reading, some cowboys are running dude ranches or sanctuaries for horses and recovering veterans.

  7. Beverly Blank says:

    Small town sheriffs, Texas Rangers, US Marshall, firefighter or private security. Any of these would look great in the jeans, boots & hat!!! But I love the Cowboys who ride the range on their ranches!!!! + those look good in their chaps!!! I’m gonna read ANY story about a Cowboy!!!
