Writing as d.j. Rangel

"Wherein I change my romance fascinator for my historian's sunbonnet."

Into the sunset front cover ebook  final
Bents Old Fort.jpg

A collection of Western short fiction.

No shoot 'em ups here. No fast draws at high noon. No handsome bare-chested cowboys. Little, if any, romance.


Meet women of grit, determination and courage who had their own reasons for traveling into the sometimes harsh and untamed western lands.

An Evening at Bent's Old Fort


This is a work of creative non-fiction, meaning the evening was real but I applied a little imagination to it.

Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site, in southeastern Colorado, is an easy place to step back in time for a moment.
