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 also a land made up of all manner of people, shopkeepers, bartenders, blacksmith's, teamsters, and the extraordinary women
who held hearth and home together.

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 it have to be written in the "western formula" fashion of the 1940's and 50's?
The same story over and again.

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 overcome 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 Western novels. Actually, they can be called 19th Century Historical Fiction of the Westward Movement.  Each is a unique story, historically accurate to the time period, and not the Hollywood version of the 19th century West.
They plot around mystery, suspense, investigations, lawmen, crooks, private investigators,
crimes to be solved, and conspiracies to overcome.

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

In addition to this, my novels are free from sexual content and profanity.
I have been told by certain editors that these are "necessary" ingredients for today's novels, but I don't accept that, and I see no purpose for their inclusion.
Such content adds nothing to the story, but rather detracts from it.
A good storyteller doesn't need these gimmicks to attract readers, as the readers of my novels who have downloaded literally millions of library pages and thousands of Kindle ebooks, have proven.

Thank you all for reading. I appreciate every one of you.

Thanks to all my readers who have written such positive and glowing
reviews on my Amazon page.
It is your genuine reactions to my novels that is the true test.

The Poudre Canyon Saga


Ten Men of Courage Trilogy


Book 1 - Into the Jumanes
Book 2 - Return to the Jumanes

A man of valor is created in the fiery forges of adversity.
War, poverty, injustice, and tests of moral courage heat him like a bar of iron, then pound him out on life’s anvil.
As with iron, the hammer’s blows reveal weakness or strength; the iron either breaks apart and is worthless, or shapes into something stronger for the fire.

Where did the Ten Men of Courage come from, and what forged their iron?

Forging the Ten Men

The three novel prequel to the Ten Men of Courage trilogy tell the stories of where these men came from, and what forged their iron wills to fight injustice.

All are set in the historically accurate times they lived in.
Here are history lessons along with intriguing stories.

Outdoor Fiction is Back
with the Northwest Suspense Collection

Contemporary stories of courage and strength.
Set in the rural or wilderness country
of the vast Northwest from Alaska to Montana.
Stories reflective of yesterday's outdoor story masters.

Northwest Suspense Collection

The green forests of the Cascade and Coastal mountains,
the rugged peaks of the Rockies, and the wilds
of Alaska create a backdrop of quiet beauty.
Yet, even in these pristine vistas crime happens.
Families are shaken, lives and livelihoods disrupted
and life as it was is forever changed.
Yet, the strength and perseverance of the people
overcome the difficulties.

Dave's newest line of novels are for young adult and adult readers.
The stories are set in the U.S. Northwest states with a
rural or wilderness setting and involve the people
and families who make their livings from the woods and small towns.

The focus is on families, in particular the young adults in them,
who struggle, win, lose, and find their strength through
the bonds of family and friends.

All novels are available through Amazon.com, Ingram, and Baker Taylor

Northwest Suspense Collection Novels







The Autumn Drift Fly Shop

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 as American tied flies.  

I have been tying professionally for over 50 years. 

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

In addition to Trout, Steelhead, and Pacific Salmon flies,

you will find wall and desk fly displays, and unique Christmas ornaments.

All great ideas for Birthday, Christmas, or any gift occasion.
