Pull up a chair and get to know every single one.

RM & I would love to introduce you to our hero...
Name: Andrew Mathison (Dalton Dougan)
Height: 6’1”
Eye Color: blue
Hair Color: dark brown
Celebrity look-a-like: Ryan Aloysius Lavery, a fictional character from the American daytime drama ‘All My Children’
* Meet Andrew Mathison, who hails from the east coast and holds a master’s degree in psychology. Once into the metrosexual scene, he gave it up in favor of blue jeans, a five o’clock shadow, adventure and hard work. The second name associated with him happens to be his ancestor. His girl claims he’s the spitting image of Dalton. He sometimes thinks he is Dalton.
*** What do you like to do for fun in Las Vegas & back home, Dru?
~ Anything outdoors. I used to be focused on my career and indoor activities, but after the issues with my mother I try to stay active outdoors as much as possible.
*** How do you stay in shape?
~ I used to work out in the gym, lots of running on a treadmill, some Pilates and yoga. Now that I’m living on the ranch, it’s a lot of riding and ranch chores.
*** What do you look for in a woman?
~ Intelligence. A good heart and sense of humor. A great smile.
*** What is the sexiest part of a woman?
~ Her eyes. I love gazing into a beautiful pair of eyes and seeing the love and life in them. Breasts aren’t bad either. ;)
*** Who do you admire the most?
~ My mom. She’s been through a lot in her life and has such a strong character. Her strength is admirable.
*** What do women say makes you attractive/appealing?
~ I have a quirky sense of humor, I can dance, and now they seem to love it when I take my shirt off and show my chiseled chest and abs.
*** What book can you be found in?
~ Wild West Hauntings – Book 2 in the Double D Ranch Tales series
*** Tell us a little more about yourself, i.e.: Where are you from? What brought you to the setting/point in the story where you come in? etc…
~ I’m from the east coast. I went to college in New York City and dated a great girl. Unfortunately, I had to leave due to family issues and left her without word and any closure. Once the issues resolved, I learned some interesting information which had me traveling to Nevada and the Double D Ranch.
*** Are you happy with the way people perceive you?
~ Yes and no. The yes… When I arrived at the ranch, I was brought into the family fold right away. The Dougans accepted me without question and automatically started calling me Dru. They sure do love their ‘D’ names! The no… And this isn’t really a big thing, just strange. After we all heard about what Rachel – that’s my girl – and Bristol went through, I sometimes catch people on the ranch looking at me, and I can’t help but think they see me as something peculiar. You see, I’m the spitting image of Dalton Dougan, an ancestor of mine. And from what Rachel said, Dalton brought her and me together.
*** What was the most interesting thing that has ever happened to you?
~ That’s a bit of a story which I’ll share later in the week. ;)
*** Where do you see yourself in the future? What do you hope to accomplish?
~ I see myself settling down with my girl, either on the Dougan ranch or on some land of our own, and supporting her in whatever she wants to do – whether it’s building her own psychology practice, raising a passel of kids or both. Me, I’d love to start breeding horses. Yeah, quite a ways from what my original plans were for my life.
*** If you could time travel and/or live anywhere in the world, where would you go and/or where would that be?
~ Once upon a time, I really wanted to go back to the Regency era in London. I also wanted to travel to Dubai and do some indoor skiing. Now, I’m exactly where I need and want to be, in the time I need and want to be in, with the girl of my dreams.
