About the Author

Jo Jean Thomas DeHonyJo Jean Thomas DeHony is the second of three girls raised by loving parents in a small town at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains (Hyattville, Wyoming).


She is a person with imagination, always thinking of something new – remodeling, art, painting, sculpting, and now a book. The love of animals led her to raising and training Tennessee Walker horses for sale. She worked for Husky Oil Company for 25 years, and during that time, she purchased the Pawnee Hotel. She wrote a few short stories for the enjoyment of the family and friends but she always thought she wanted to publish a book. In 2010, she started a book with the main subject being her old hotel, dated from 1897 to 2005. Her ideas became a reality.
