Non-writing update

I figure once in a while, I’ll do an update that isn’t writing related, so here it is.
Spring is a busy time for us. We’ve got cows calving, chicks hatching, gardens to plant, fields to plant, and fences to fix just to name a few things. This means my writing has slowed down a bit.
We’re in the middle of calving season now, so we have lots of cute calves. Most of our calves are black, but we got a brown Swiss bull last year and bred him to our milk cows, so we’ve got a bit more color this year.

About Jessi L. Roberts

I live and work on my family’s cattle ranch in eastern Montana. I have a flock of chickens, a hyper golden retriever, some cows, and a few horses. I enjoy fantasy and science fiction and my head is full of wild sci-fi story ideas, some involving apocalypses and others involving aliens. I have been published twice in Havok Magazine, an imprint of Splickity.
