Good Water is my
twenty-fifth western/frontier novel and my sixth book with Five Star
Publishing. I wrote it in the first part of 2015, and it came out in the latter
part of 2016. For this novel, I tried a couple of approaches with which I had
not done much, and so it took me a while to get the plan ironed out.
Death in Cantera is my
twenty-fourth western/frontier novel, my fifth book with Five Star, and my
second Dunbar story. I wrote it in 2013, and it came out in early 2016. By the
time I wrote this novel, I had an established relationship with Five Star, so I
could think about writing a story with that publisher in mind. Also, because Dark
Prairie had done well with reviews, sales, and an award, and because the
people at Five Star liked Dunbar, I had encouragement to write another novel
with him as the somewhat mysterious sleuth.
Across the Cheyenne River
was my second novel with Five Star Publishing and my twenty-first traditional
western. Although that sequence may sound routine, this novel did not make its
way into the world without obstacles.
