A little about my work in progress, an historical western starring Rowdy Rhodes, who appeared briefly in “The Man from Stone Creek”, and Lark Morgan, a lady with secrets as big and dangerous as Rowdy’s own. The novel takes place in the fictional northern Arizona town of Stone Creek, where readers of the previous book will run into old friends, Sam, Maddie and the Major, and make some new ones, too.
It’s 1905 when Rowdy arrives in Stone Creek, summoned there by Sam and the Major, in their capacity as Arizona Rangers, with little other information to go on. His dog, Pardner, comes along, and serves as a canine deputy when Rowdy is once again sworn in as town marshal.
It’s a heart-driven, complex story, and I think you’ll love it, even if you haven’t read “The Man from Stone Creek”. That will be out in paperback next June, and “A Wanted Man” will follow in hardcover in July. I’ve seen the art work for the cover, and those fine folks in the HQN art department have done it again. It’s wonderful!
Most of the household is off today for a wedding in Canada. I’ll be staying home to ride herd over the four-leggers and work on the new book. More tomorrow.
