*********************************************************

The western movement during the 19th century played a major role in the history of America. 

Here was born the mountain men, cowboys, gunfighters, outlaws, and the
lawmen who tamed a wild country. 

It was a land where a man's honor was in his spoken word and his handshake.

It wasn’t a myth, as some claim it was, it really happened, the "old west" as it is called,

was an historical fact.




But -- does the telling of it have to be in the person of Hopalong Cassidy or Lone Ranger?
Does it have to be written in the "western formula" fashion of the 1940's and 50's where every story is only a rehash of those that have gone before, where only the names and locations are changed?
The same story over and again.

On the other hand


Why can't a novel set in the 19th century American West tell a story about the people of that time, the situations they encounter, and the problems they overcame in a realistic manner?
Why can't such a story fit into the modern categories of Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Crime,
Police Procedural, and Conspiracy?

That is what I do with my novels. Each is a unique story, not a Hollywood rehash.
They plot around mystery, suspense, investigations, lawmen, crooks, private investigators, crimes to be solved, and conspiracies to overcome.
However, unlike most modern novels, the telling is without porn prose and profanity.
Is it possible to tell a good story without those elements?
Hundreds of years of excellent literature proves it is.
If you are a reader who appreciates a good story without those unnecessary
elements you have come to the right place.


A few of my novels as an example:

Virgil Creede involves a crime lord and the investigation to bring him down.
The Turning of Copper Creek where a US Marshal investigates a criminal organization.
Zak Doolin's Gold plunges a young man into a mystery against a murderous woman.
Jury of Six involves crime, conspiracy, and mystery regarding the disappearance of two men.
The Poudre Canyon Saga follows the growth of two brothers' families in the West and the crimes, mysteries, and personal growth amidst their loves, victories, and losses.


Read a couple and you will find out that these are not your typical westerns.

The Outlaw Hunter

(Double Diamond Books)


Eli Warren didn’t consider himself a bounty hunter. He hunted outlaws like some men hunted wolves or mountain lions. The bounties he collected were simply payments rendered to a workman, and he was a man good at his work.
Under Eli’s flint-hard exterior, that was merciless to outlaws, ran a wide streak of kindness that showed itself the day he picked up a starving orphan in Dodge City and took him along. He soon learned that the twelve-year-old Rob Slater harbored a common intent with him – to run down the elusive Parson gang. He for the $10,000 reward, and Rob, because Jude Parson had murdered his folks. Rob asked Eli to teach him the trade so one day he could look Jude Parson in the eye and square things with the killer.
Under Eli’s tutorage the two came to turn the outlaw world on its ear until the day Eli honored his brother’s dying request and took his young daughter into his care touching off a series of unexpected changes that would forever mold their futures.

All of you fly Fly Fishing enthusiasts know how hard it is to find real American hand tied flies these days.

Flies that are tied with top of the line materials. The trend for many stores is to buy in mass bulk from the cheapest foreign sources possible and pass them off to you at the same price of American tied flies.  

I have been tying professionally for over 35 years. 

 If the fly is not one I would use, then you won't end up with it either.

Come to my web fly shop - Autumn Drift Flies            

for your Trout dries, wets, nymphs, and streamers.
                            You will also find Steelhead and Pacific Salmon Flies,                               in addition to Wall and Desk Displays as well.
