Author Beckey Burgoyne Returns West To Discuss Gunsmoke's "Miss Kitty" At Rex Allen Days Event
Chandler, Ariz. (SEPTEMBER 16, 2011)-Ever wonder why Matt Dillon never kissed Miss Kitty? And just what was going on upstairs after hours at the Long Branch Saloon all those twenty years? For answers to these questions and much more regarding the beautiful and sultry Kitty Russell, a.k.a. actress Amanda Blake, and all the other lovable characters of the iconic western series Gunsmoke, be sure to visit with author Beckey Burgoyne at the Rex Allen Days event scheduled for September 29 - October 2, 2011 in Wilcox, Ariz.
Burgoyne, author of Perfectly Amanda: Gunsmoke's "Miss Kitty" - To Dodge and Beyond is returning west after a spring book tour to discuss Amanda Blake, Gunsmoke, and the three-year research project in writing the biography - a journey that led her coast to coast - literally. She will also be on hand to sign copies of Perfectly Amanda. Books will be available for purchase for the retail price of $29.95.
Now in its second printing, the award winning Perfectly Amanda, published by Five Star Publications, Inc., chronicles Amanda Blake's life and her tenacious journey to that infamous destination - the dusty streets of Dodge City - as well as her personal life beyond the soundstage including her passionate work with animals, worldwide travel adventures, heart-wrenching struggles of life, and her enduring spirit to zealously embrace life. "[Perfectly Amanda] ... is about as detailed and loaded with anecdote and art as any biography has a right to be," says Henry Cabot Beck (True West Magazine , April 2011). "To say Burgoyne's bio is a labor of love is an understatement."
Burgoyne, a teacher at Northeast Elementary Magnet School in Danville, Illinois, resides with her husband, Rick, in Covington, Ind. For more information and editorial reviews about Perfectly Amanda, visit: www.PerfectlyAmanda.com.
