Stephy Smith was born and raised in the Northwest Texas Panhandle. She owns and operates her own ranch and is the sole caretaker of her mother. Stephy loves to write historical romance claiming the land she lives on is more in tune with the 1800 vast prairie lands than with the 2000 updates. Most of her inspiration comes from the weather, wildlife and imagination from country living. In her spare time, she loves to read, ride horses, watch rodeos and paint.
