Praise For Debby’s Books
- Linda Wunder WallAuthor of "My Roots Are In The Ruts"
"Viewing ranch life through Debby Schoeningh's comic lens, is completely delightful! She makes me smile, chuckle, and laugh out loud. In Debby's daily life, she is a quiet, petite, realist, who can just regularly lampoon the unsuspecting with her hilarious capture of the absurd. It is her amazing gift. Consequently, as readers, we are lucky to get to share in this gift! Husband, Mike, is one lucky Dude, living with this gift...on his Ranch!"
- Rick SteberWestern Author
“Anyone who lives in the rural West, visits here, or wished they lived here will appreciate Debby Schoeningh’s book. It is hilarious. Debby has the unique ability to take ordinary events, common throughout the rural West, twist them around and wring out every ounce of humor and absurdity. This is not a Roy Rogers, Dale Evans western myth type of book. This is the real deal — life on the ranch. I enjoyed every word and every paragraph. I laughed out loud and read passages to friends. Great job, Debby!”
- Leigh RubinCreator of Rubes® Cartoons
"I have never lived on a ranch, but if I did it would most certainly be on Debby Schoeningh's. Who would have ever guessed that getting, kicked, head butted, pooped on and generally abused could be so much fun?! Debby’s real life humorous insights can be appreciated by those who live the real ‘ranch life’ and those of us who have never gotten closer than a bottle of ranch dressing."
- Stan BurrowayRetired Journalist
"When Debby Schoeningh writes about ranching, the romance of the Old West somehow is apt to get tangled up in the laughter and dragged behind the tractor. It's clear that Debby loves being a rancher's wife and chief cow-sitter, but she just can't take the job seriously to save her life.”
- Whit DeschnerAuthor of the humor-award winning book, “Travels with a Kayak”
“If this wasn’t so truthful it wouldn’t be so gall-darn funny. I read it straight through and I’m still suffering chuckles."
- David Asson Author of "Bringing In The Hay"
"Whether you are in the business or just sittin’ the fence you will get a hilarious, inside scoop on ranching from these homespun anecdotes. Debby Schoeningh’s perspective on how things happen out on the farm is a whole new look at the lesser-known moments in a rancher’s life."
The Muse & News
Hi everyone, it has been awhile since I have added anything to my websites. Oh, who am I kidding, it has been like foreeeeever! I’m still here, but I have been busy working, ranching, writing and playing with wiener dogs. The company that I was working for went through a restructuring recently and eliminated my
On My Bookshelf
I often get asked questions like, “How do I get my book printed?” The most desirable way, of course, is to be accepted by a mainstream publisher like HarperCollins or Penguin Random House and get paid author royalties beyond your wildest dreams. However, I have found that there is so much competition that even getting your
Love My Wiener Dogs
I had a really bad case of puppy fever. Well, that has since been quenched with two little wiener dogs, Heidi and Pogo. They have been so much fun! I used to raise dachshunds years ago and when the last of the ones we had kept passed away, I decided it was too heartbreaking to
