New! Images of America
With its large trees and rolling hills, the small town of Argyle is nestled between the Grand Prairie and the Blackland Prairie. In the 1850s, settlers found Argyle’s natural resources perfect for growing crops and raising cattle. In 1881, when the Texas and Pacific Railroad built tracks through Denton County, Argyle became a town. Those who led the way to bring modern conveniences and provide protection for the people of Argyle are pointed out in this book, which tracks Argyle’s history from a farming community to a modern town. Through the years, Argyle citizens have worked together to benefit the community, which has continued with local charitable organizations—the Argyle Food Pantry, the Argyle Seniors’ Activities Center, the Communities Civic League, Inc., and the Argyle Education Foundation.

Santa chooses eight cows to help him finish delivering the toys but when he doesn’t pick Sugar Lump, the spunky little calf shouts out loudly that he could help Santa pull the sled.

When I am not traveling or working on a project for one of the three charitable organizations I started over a span of the last twelve years-the North Texas Book Festival, Inc., Communities civic League, Inc. and the Argyle Seniors’ Activities Center. I am busy writing another mystery in the “Bo Series,” Bo and the Mystery of Tumbleweed Ranch.
Bo and the Christmas Bandit and Sugar Lump’s Night Before Christmas are now available in bookstores and on the internet.
