Peoria residents publish rhymes about the women who tamed the West

Posted

New authors, Peoria residents Judie Cole and Louise Halotek, have published their first book.

The "Magic of the Red Dress" is written in poetic style and depicts the struggles and accomplishments of early frontier women.

The characters, Cinnamon Rose and Cowboy Sam, bring to life the spirit of the Old West.

Both writers felt a passion to showcase women and their journeys to the West, their successes, the trials and tribulations they encountered, and the men who crossed their paths.

Cole and Halotek live in Vistancia, and they are working on another book.

The "Magic of the Red Dress" will be available through Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Walmart and Book Baby Bookshop.
