The second book of my tales of the old west is scheduled for release next week the week of August 20. It’s titled A Bullet in the Neck.  Here’s a taste of the stories featured in it:

Gold Fever

Greed leads to violence, betrayal, and death, as honest, hard-working gold miners discover a traitor in their midst when they must confront a killer and his vicious gang of murdering thieves.


Big Dream Ranch

An ambitious man works to overcome many obstacles as he works to make his big dream come true, unaware that he has yet to face the greatest obstacle of all.


Mary’s Medicine

A dying man is awakened by a gun-toting stranger in his bedroom who has a terrible story to tell that might just save his life.


Annie Davenport and Dr. Hartlee’s Miracle Headache Cure

A series of tragedies push a young woman toward a terrible choice: Marry a man she detests to save her ranch and ensure the survival of her young son and herself, or risk everything to keep her freedom—and her time is running out.

With love,
