New Book Release

I am pleased to announce that my newest western novel DOVES ON THE ROOST has just been released and is now available in paperback and eBook through Amazon.com!


My newest western short story titled "No Killing Here" has just been published on Rope and Wire!  If you'd like to check it out, you can find it at the link below.  I'm always glad to hear what readers think of my work.



My new book LOOSE CHIPPINGS, a western novel of the Alaskan frontier has just been released by Two Gun Publishing!  It's now available in paperback for $10.27 or as an eBook for just $.99 (free with Kindle Unlimited) through Amazon.com.  Should you take the time to give it a read, I'd love to hear what you think of it!


The audiobook to my western SCARECROWS OF GOLDEN PRAIRIE, narrated by Curtis Smith, has been released and is now available at the link below.  If anyone's interested in getting it for free in exchange for an honest review, let me know.  I have promo codes for you!



Thrilled to see that my short story "The Ballad of Bootlip Bill" climbed to #1 on Rope and Wire's top ten westerns for September 2020, and still sits at #4 for October.  Many thanks to all readers who have made this happen! https://www.ropeandwire.com/top-ten-stories.html


My newest collection of short stories BOXCAR TALES: Revisited has recently been released through Driftless Endeavors and can now be found on Amazon in paperback for $8.95 and on kindle for $2.99.  Should anyone on booksie take the time to read it, I'd love to hear your opinions.


Proud to be a part of the Two Gun Publishing family, an all new western publisher who I hope to be working with for a long time to come.  SCARECROWS OF GOLDEN PRAIRIE and THE LEGEND OF WHISKEY CHARLIE are available in paperback and kindle through Amazon.com.


My western short story "The Ballad of Bootlip Bill" has been published to the front page of Outlaws Echo Magazine (March 5, 2020).  The story can be found at outlawsecho.com


I am very proud to have had four of my western stories: "Black Appaloosa", "Where the Bad Folks Go", "Phantom of the Wood" and "The Ballad of Bootlip Bill" published on Rope and Wire.  Check them out for free at the link below!



***A note to all who participated in the SKITCH-BOT project: Great Job!  The entire book turned out fantastic.  I am more than happy to have a bit of my work included in a volume filled with such excellent material.  Thank you for the opportunity.


I am incredibly honored to have my work appear along with the writing of such talented authors in the ONE HUNDRED CROWS book and volumes one through six of THE RONIN EXPRESS, all of which are currently available through Amazon.com. 


The imaginative and highly recommended book by Robert Kasch: DOC HOLLIDAY AND HIS MUDD CREEK REGULATORS ​​is available on Amazon.com.  This novel guarantees an entertaining read with great adventure and awesome illustrations throughout.  Part Western, part steampunk, part science fiction, and very original.  Check it out, you will not be disappointed! 


Thank you to all who have read and continue to read my work.
