SOWA28Jim Olson is a ranch-raised cowboy, author, promoter and entrepreneur. He grew up on the high plains of eastern New Mexico, learning to ride young colts, tend to cattle and drive heavy farm equipment at an early age.

            Jim spent some years competing in the calf roping event at the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association level, qualifying for the circuit finals a few times. Now he is a weekend roper. He lives on and operates his own ranch near Stanfield, Arizona - once a part of John Wayne’s Red River Ranch.

            These great life experiences Jim now uses in his writing career. He writes stories about interesting and extraordinary people of the west including short stories of both fiction and nonfiction. He writes a monthly column titled “My Cowboy Heroes,” published by several Southwestern and national magazines. Jim has three books published and is constantly working on new projects.
