We love Fort Worth.
Fort Worth is the kind of town where men look you in the eye and open doors for women. Fort Worth is the kind of town where you can take your kids on a bike ride to grab a burger, run a maze, and watch a cattle drive. Fort Worth is the kind of town where jeans are accepted, if not preferred at the highest rated restaurants and museums in the city. And Fort Worth is the kind of town where you mention you are writing a book, and people bend over backwards to help you succeed.
Did we mention we love Fort Worth?
Goodnight Cowtown is the kind of book that wrote itself. We found ourselves surrounded with one of the most interesting, culturally significant, and historic towns in this country and the sweet, bedtime classic Goodnight Moon as our inspiration. The marriage of the two was natural, and we truly enjoyed the creative process. In fact, Fort Worth has so much to offer that our only struggle was our not being able to include everything that makes us proud to call it home. It is our hope that Goodnight Cowtown will serve as a tour guide for those new to the city, a memento for those that have to leave, and a timeless tribute for us all.
