Dave P. Fisher
Dave P. Fisher has spent half a life time as a working cowboy, rodeo rider, bronc buster, horsepacker, and guide. His adventures on the back of a horse have taken him from the wilds of Alaska to Oregon, and all through the Rocky Mountains, but he now calls Nevada home.
Dave began putting his cowboy knowledge and experiences into poems, and then into western novels and short stories. Since then he has become internationally published with several of his short stories earning Reader’s Choice Awards. His collection of Western short stories Bronc Buster Short Stories of the American West
was awarded the prestigious Will Rogers Medallion for outstanding Western Fiction for 2008.
His cowboy poetry comes in a unique form in that he tells stories of the old and new West in meter and rhyme. Most of it tends to be humorous, finding the nature, and faults, in his cowboy culture and sharing it with his audiences in a spirit of good fun. Then, he will turn around and give them something serious in regards to the things cowboys hold most important in their lives.
He has headlined shows in Oregon, California, and Nevada. In addition to being a cowboy poet Dave is also an actor and a member of the Reno comedy improv troupe The Cutting Edge.
