WordsWorth was founded by K.T. Roes in the 1980s as a public relations and advertising agency in Cody Wyoming. In 2005 WordsWorth’s focus turned to publishing books of regional history, memoirs, firearms, and non-fiction by local authors.
In 2014, Renée Tafoya took over the reins at WordsWorth. Renée is a graphic designer with over 30 years experience in publishing. Her background includes work as the publications manager for the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, as an art director in the instructional products division at Apple Inc., book cover designer for Brooks/Cole, and owner of Tafoya Design.

Renée is an avid reader with a passion for Western issues and history.
Our vision for the future of WordsWorth is to promote Western artists and authors and to promote greater appreciation for and understanding of the American West. WordsWorth has over 30 titles in print and publishes an average of 2-3 titles per year.
