Book to be released May 27, 2017
I am thrilled to announce the release of my Children’s Book! I would like to introduce you all to Cowboy Cody!
Writing a rodeo-themed children’s book has been a dream of mine for many years. Cowboy Cody will be available at western stores and mainstream bookstores after the Book Launch celebration on Saturday, May 27th 2017.
The Book Launch Celebration will be hosted at Cowboy Country Western Store in Nanton, Alberta on May 27th from 1-4 PM. Come on down and say hello to me and the illustrator Dane Larocque and scoop up your own signed copy, hot off the press!
Professional artist Dane Larocque is the guy behind the brilliant and lively illustrations which instantly grab hold of the imagination and take young readers on an adventure with Cowboy Cody.
About the Illustrator
With his mother a pro barrel racer (Kirsty White) and his father a pro bulldogger (Alvin Larocque), Dane Larocque was born and raised in the life of rodeo, spending most of his youth on the open road. During that time, he always had a sketchbook at his side, filling it with creatures and animals. This fascination with art continued to grow with age.
After a few years of working in construction, the oilfield and farming, Dane decided to follow his heart and find his place in the world of art. Dane loaded up his truck and drove west from the small town of Big Valley, Alberta to the big city of Vancouver, British Columbia.
He enrolled in the Art Institute of Vancouver and, after two years of studies, it was clear that this was where he belonged. Now three years out of school, he is happily working his dream job as a full time artist.
