ROPED & TIED
By Ronald H. Keyser
Defiance Press, 2020
ROPED & TIED is a fictional story of Dani O'Brien, a young woman from a well-to-do family who gives up a life of privilege to marry and travel the professional rodeo circuit with Jake O'Brien himself as the best of all time. The story’s backdrop paints a vivid picture of
the highs and lows of professional rodeo life, but the plot also exposes the weaknesses of the main characters, from excessive drug and alcohol use to turning their backs on family and friends, adultery and family violence. The story is about good times and bad, and the lengths Dani and Jake are willing to go to establish their legacy in one of the most competitive sports in the country. That same drive, however, could also be the reason
they lose their grip on the one thing they want the most.
