Wendell Blackowl has spent all his life in the working cow horse show ring where toiling with sweaty cowboys all day is the fodder for wet dreams. Though privately he’s come to terms with his sexuality, publicly Dell’s had to build a façade. When his beloved horse Buttermilk dies, Dell finds himself at loose ends so he decides to pick himself up by his boot straps and do what he’s always wanted to do… open an environmentally friendly organic vegetarian café.

Pace Avila, well known music critic, has been drawn to Austin by the live music scene. When friends invite him to check out a fresh new dinner experience, Pace reluctantly agrees to push the deadline on his national column. He isn’t interested in vegetarian food or a restaurant with the cheesy name of Buttermilk Ranch Café, but the moment Pace lays eyes on the stunning cowboy chef, things begin looking up. 

When openly gay Pace walks into his cafe and his life, Dell realizes he’s tired of living a lie and tired of being alone. When Mother Nature throws an unprecedented storm at Austin, the muddy waters threaten to wipe out everything Dell’s worked so hard to build. He soon realizes that with a man like Pace by his side, love really can conquer all.

“Yoo Hoo! Dell, ya up there, ya sidewinder! Get outa bed or I’m gonna drag that lazy ass out!”

“What?” Pace said, startled awake as he lifted his head from Dell’s chest where he’d fallen asleep in the wee hours of the morning. He wiped his face of drool and stared across the muscled chest he loved, finding Dell’s face. He had one eye peeled open and he didn’t look all too happy by what sounded like Branch’s bellowing from downstairs.

“Fuckin’ ass poor timin’,” Dell grumbled as they both sat upright in bed. Pace knew it would be pretty awful if Branch came bursting into the room with them, lying buck naked in bed. “Guess I’d better find out just what the hell he’s doin’ here.” Pace watched as Dell threw his legs over the side of the bed. He watched his ass from behind, noting the muscled expanse of his back and the thick thighs he loved so much, as the man stood.

“What the hell is he doing here? He and the boys had a show,” Pace grumbled.

“Ya rattlesnake! Ya need me to come up there and put my boot up yer ass?” Branch howled. Pace couldn’t help but chuckle. He loved his brother but he loved the disgusted look on Dell’s face more. Dell walked to the doorway and stuck his head out.

“I’ll be down in a minute, ya jackass… unless ya want to see me in all my nekkid glory!” Dell yelled back.

Pace heard a chuckle coming from downstairs. “Hell naw! Get some clothes on there, scarecrow! Yer movin’ slower than a snake’s belly in a wagon rut.”

“Oh for Christ’s sake, here we go,” Dell said, glancing over at him. Pace just buried his face in the pillow and laughed.

Q & A with author Patricia Logan

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Patricia Logan author of Buttermilk Ranch
Hi Patricia, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.

      Wicked Faerie's  Tell us something about your character’s friends. 
      Patricia Logan - Wendell Blackowl has a lot of friends. His best friend is Paisley who has always been at his side from the time they were children, growing up on the reservation. She’s the only person in the world who knows Dell is gay because he trusted her to keep his secret. As a result, everyone else thinks Paisley has been Dell’s girlfriend all their lives and Dell finds that after a while, he doesn’t want to be in the closet anymore and he wants to let Paisley date guys openly and stop being his beard. I give her a handsome cowboy boyfriend at the end of the book.

Dell’s other friends are the cowboys he’s worked with all his life. They are a fun and funny bunch of characters you will come to love. Branch (Pace’s half-brother) is one of them. He comes out with some southern phrases that cracked me up so bad, I couldn’t stop laughing when I wrote them down in the book. The other cowboys are an eclectic bunch of guys I hope you love as much as I do.

Pace doesn’t have a lot of friends on the page because he’s just relocated to Texas from New York. His job as a music critic has kept him extremely busy where he’s lived on both coasts, from NY City to LA.

      WF -    What is your character’s favorite meal? Favorite dessert? Favorite snack food?

PL - In the book, Pace makes a first attempt at cooking vegetarian to please his lover, Dell so he makes this amazing sandwich on jalapeno cheese bread with a Portobello mushroom with a balsamic mayo. Since the book is all about Dell opening a vegetarian/vegan café, there’s a ton of food in this book so the foodies will enjoy it. 

      WF   What activity does your character absolutely hate?

PL - I can easily answer this. The book takes place during the late spring of 2015 when Mother Nature decided to drop a ton of rain on central and south Texas, causing massive flood damage. As a result, Dell’s wonderful brand new Buttermilk Ranch Café is damaged. I can’t tell you a lot about it, but let’s leave it to say Pace and Dell pretty much hate shoveling and cleaning and most of all, they hate MUD!

      WF What other author’s book do you think your character would be good in?

PL - Pace dresses in retro 1960s and 1970s clothing and his apartment is decorated exactly the same. He’s pretty much a 60’s-70’s dude right out of Woodstock where he would have fit in just fine. I can see him in an Andy Warhol Biography or a book by Truman Capote like “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”.

Dell is an old-fashioned southern gentleman who is timeless in any decade, comfortable most in western styles. I can see him in any cowboy book… maybe a Louis L’Amour book like “Riders of the Dawn”.

      WF -  What’s your favorite decade and why?

PL - The 1980s. I was young, just out of high school, going to college, and partying at night. I also worked very hard in retail, selling everything from paint compressors to diamonds in my off hours so making the time to go out to dance clubs and cut loose was really important. My early 20’s were a carefree time in my life before marriage and kids and I’d love to take a time machine back there.
