For the Norden Boys Commentary

I continue to post commentaries I have written about my own work, with the assumption that anyone who ends up here is interested in knowing about things I have written.  For additional images, book descriptions, and review excerpts, one may go to the “Books” tab above and browse there.

For the Norden Boys is my eighth traditional western novel.  It was published in June 2002 by Leisure Books (Dorchester Publishing).  As with Black Hat Butte and Lonesome Range, I consider it to be at the center of my work, as it is a literary traditional western with strong interest in character and landscape. For the Norden Boys is available at Amazon.

Man from Wolf River Commentary

Man from Wolf River is my seventh traditional western novel. It was published in May 2001 by  Leisure Books (Dorchester Publishing). As I planned and wrote this novel, I considered it to be in a somewhat lighter style than some of my previous works such as Coyote Trail and North of Cheyenne. I thought of it as being in the same spirit as Black Diamond Rendezvous, a work that I hoped had a bit of humor, a bit of dark irony, and some underlying serious value. This would also be a style that I would strive to continue in later works such as the Jimmy Clevis novels (Red Wind Crossing, Rancho Alegre, and Raven Springs). Man from Wolf River is available on Amazon.

North of Cheyenne Commentary

North of Cheyenne is my sixth traditional western novel.  It was published in October 2000 by Leisure Books (Dorchester Publishing).  This work, like many of my other traditional westerns, places an emphasis on character and landscape, and it is a continuation of my earlier attempts at breaking out of the predictable patterns of the paperback western. North of Cheyenne is available on Amazon.

Black Diamond Rendezvous Commentary

Here I am, back again after another bit of an absence, trying to bring this blog back to life. As mentioned in previous posts, I am re-posting things I wrote in an earlier blog that disappeared into the always-night of cyberspace.

Here is a bit of commentary I am reintroducing. It is a post I wrote about Black Diamond Rendezvous in 2009. Black Diamond Rendezvous is available at Amazon.

Black Diamond Rendezvous is my fourth traditional western novel and my first paperback original. It was published in May 1998 by Leisure Books (Dorchester Publishing). It was actually the third western I wrote, but it was the fourth published, which probably doesn’t matter much to anyone but myself. However, there is a mini-chapter here on the topic of how, why, or why not a work will be published.
