Finally made it - a long ride from there to here!

Post by Monette » Wed Oct 29, 2008 10:54 am

Hi all - I'm glad to have found my way in. I have been a Bonanza fan since the age of 6, when it first aired, so yes, that makes me 55! Adam became my favorite fairly quickly, though not right away - I thought he looked mean in Rose for Lotta. But now that's one of my favorite episodes, knowing it' s the only one Dortort wrote himself.

Yes, I think Dortort's a great man. Easy to do, even if I'd never met him! I am honored to have published Felling of the Sons with his permission, and to follow up, soon, with Mystic Fire, a completely new kind of Bonanza adventure. If you'd like to get a glance at it, go to www.chasingthevrykolakas.info.

I look forward to getting to know people - and maybe even meeting you at the convention next September!

:baloons2 It's great to have you here, Monette! I was seven when Bonanza came on, and I have loved it ever since! I had a crush on Joe in the beginning, but soon Adam stole my heart!

I enjoyed your book, and am looking forward to reading the next one!

Have fun at Boomers!

Hi Monette! :welcome to :bonanzaboomers That's amazing that you have written Bonanza books with David Dortort's blessing! I read some of the excerpt on your page and you are a really good writer.

:welcome Monette...I'm so glad you've decided to join BB. I've read your 'Felling of the Sons' more than once and really think you have the Cartwright family down pat. Am really looking forward to your new book. I hope when it is available, you'll let us know how it can be ordered.

Hi Monette. :welcome to Boomers forums.

I'm an Adam girl too, however I love all the Cartwrights. I just love everything Bonanza. I didn't get to see bonanza when it was on originally. I guess I'm a newbie to Bonanza, but I'm sure making up for lost time.

My first adventure into Bonanza came in the summer of 2004 and The Jackknife was on. I fell in love with Adam Cartwright and my life hasn't been the same since. :cool1
