Hailing from the Southern Hemisphere, you may find me online at ‘weird’ times; however, it is just my time zone coming into play and I am always around every day at some point. So if you can’t find me in the Cbox, I am always available via PM.
Together, the founders have a combined experience level of over 50 years, so you are in good hands. So draw up a chair by the log fire and stay a while or longer and immerse yourself into the world that has been created here at Heart of the West!
Outside of writing, she enjoys video games and long walks on the beach. ...Not really. She hates the ocean.
Additionally, Blue is one of those weird math and science people who also enjoys writing, and she has been writing for over ten years. She loves good plotting, character development, and is always a sucker for a happy ending.
Cattle Barons want to expand their herds, while farmers are struggling to work the land. Greedy Miners are at odds with each other and the Natives who believe their land is sacred. The soldiers of Fort Langden have their hands full managing the situation and local law enforcement who resent their presence. Men and women looking for their fortunes have been flooding in since the rumors of gold running under the mountain came to light, and while the influx of people has been good for business, the proprietors are just waiting for the bubble to burst.
The place is a powder keg and all it'll take is a spark to set it off.
Come explore the sprawling western town with its various array of characters or wander the range where the multitude of cattle roam, get involved in the lives of farmers struggling to hold off the pushy cattle barons encroaching on their lands or explore the dangerous world of coal mining.
Is the government corrupt?
Are the farmers right in their wild accusations?
Is there something fishy going on with the coal mines? Is there really a massive vein of gold deep within the mountains just waiting to be discovered? Or will you create your own adventure?
Start writing and find out!
