At one time, westerns were one of the most popular types of programs on television. Before I was born, my brother was a big fan of The Lone Ranger. My mother wouldn’t miss an episode of The Virginian and my father liked the show Have Gun Will Travel.
I grew up watching John Wayne and other western stars. In the 1980s, when westerns had a resurgence in popularity, two of my favorite movies were Clint Eastwood’s Pale Rider and Silverado with Scott Glenn, Kevin Kline, Danny Glover, and Kevin Costner.
Therefore, I was excited when asked if I would like to participate in an anthology of western stories. But unlike the movies I grew up watching, these aren’t your typical shoot ’em up westerns.
Unshod released last week. I join authors Jan Morrill, Pamela Foster, Staci Troilo, P. C. Zick, Janna Hill, Michele Jones, Frances Guenette, and Lorna Faith in a collection of traditional and contemporary stories.
For more information on the book as well as retailer links, click on my Unshod book page. And if you have a chance, take a moment to visit the websites of these other talented authors. I am honored to be included in this collection.
The stories aren’t your granddaddy’s western, but they’re darn good!
