Jesse J Elliot writes about what she has loved to read all her life—the Old West—except her stories always have a strong female protagonist. She has published seven stories in Frontier Tales Magazine, and four of these were voted short story of the month. Another short story, “Timeless” was published in A Mail-Order Bride for Christmas in a Prairie Rose Publication. Her novel about a woman sheriff in New Mexico in the 1880s, Death at Gran Quivera was published in 2017. Her most recent book by Outlaw Press is called Lost in Time.
In her previous life, Jesse taught K-6, community college classes, and Educational Methods at the University of New Mexico. In her free time, she reads, travels, C/W dances, and visits her family ranch in New Mexico.
