Bobbie Jean Sawyer is a former Midwesterner living in Austin, Texas. Although she’s not from Texas, she likes to think that Texas wants her anyway. She has worked as a freelance writer since 2011 after graduating with a journalism degree from Missouri State University. Her writing has been featured in Texas Highways Magazine. When she’s not writing she can usually be found listening to country music, obsessing over western clothing, and traveling around Texas as an amateur bbq sampler.
