About the author (2011)

This story has been rattling around in my head since I was twelve years old, so I've had a good deal of time to develop it. I've lived with the story in my mind for so long that it seems like it's a part of me, and the characters are like old friends. When I started actually writing it about two years ago, the story took on a life of its own. I felt a welcome emotional release when it was finally finished and I was able to begin work on the second book. I have loved the western genre since I was a kid, and the grit and the determination of the people that carved a way of life out of the frontier have helped to shape the way I live my own life. Because of that era, I keep my word, I finish what I start and I'm a true friend. Born in New York City and living now in New Jersey, I've lived in several areas of the midwest but have never resided in any area that could be termed the West. However, I've absorbed so much of the West through books, movies and TV that I feel like I have been there. The colors, sounds and images stay vividly enough in my mind that I can believe I have experienced them. I believe this is what qualifies me to write this story.
