Dangerous Trails Commentary

Dangerous Trails, published by Prairie Rose Publications in June 2020, is a collection of twelve western short stories that (with one small exception) I wrote since my last collection (Blue Horse Mesa) came out in 2013.  This is my third collection of western short stories and my eleventh collection of short fiction. It includes “Return to Laurel,” which was a Western Writers of America Spur Award finalist and a Western Fictioneers Peacemaker Award finalist, both in 2020.

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.

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.
