SJ New Photo a little shadow removed  SJ Brown

S. J. brown is a wildlife photographer & Author. For 15 years she has traveled extensively throughout the United States in pursuit of wildlife encounters. Much to the dismay of her spotter, and husband this often involves trekking through thick brush, muddy trails, rocky seas or secluded locations, but the interaction with wildlife makes it all worth it.
S. J. Brown’s photographs and written words are a way to share her encounters with others. The time she spends with students and adults discussing photography, and wildlife hopefully inspires others to explore their creative side.

    Hello, I was curious as to if you’re interested in re-designing you site for a fresher look?


  2. Joe Megeath says:

    Interesting group and interesting writing – do you have a common bond?


    • Wranglers says:

      Hi Joe, glad to have you reading our blog. The only common bond we have is our love for writing, promoting our stories or books and we enjoy blogging. Cher’ley


  3. I’m also a writer and read your blog regularly. I have a post I would like to contribute. I was just about to put it on my blog when it occurred to me it would be more suitable for this one. How do I go about querying or submitting something to be posted?


    • Wranglers says:

      Hi, Abbie, I’ve been watching you following us and leaving comments. We are so glad to have you. We don’t usually have guest bloggers, we’re in this writing blog group and each of us takes turns posting. Sometimes, we have had guest bloggers, but not often. I can ask the group. What is your blog about? Cher’ley
