The Prairie Man to be published in Large Print

I've received the welcome news that my August 2011 title The Prairie Man will be published as a Large Print paperback in 2013.

Tales about the spectre of the night known as the Prairie Man were told to frighten children, but one day those tales nearly led to a tragic accident for Temple Kennedy. His friend Hank Pierce saved his life, Temple vowed that one day he would return the favour.

Fifteen years later the two friends grew up to lead different lives: Hank is a respected citizen while Temple is an outlaw. But, when Hank is wrongly accused of murder, Temple is given a chance for redemption. He vows to save Hank or die in the attempt.

However, in seeking to unmask the real culprit his investigation leads to a man who isn't even supposed to exist: the Prairie Man.

Railroad to Redemption available in Large Print

My August 2010 title Railroad to Redemption is now available in Large Print. As I've often reported here the one thing that I love to see on my covers is an image that is relevant to the story. Ulverscroft rarely provide that and instead they usually produce generic western imagery of men with guns looking mean and moody. So I was delighted to find that this time they've provided a perfect match of title and cover!

ISBN: 9781444809169
Large Print (Soft Cover) - 221 Pages
Published - 01-12-2011
Genre - Western
Price - £ 8.99

The influx of railroad men looking to build a new track to Redemption brings trouble for Sheriff Cassidy Yates. But when Dayton Fisher arrives, looking for work, things seem to be looking up. And his bravery persuades Luther to hire him as a bodyguard. However, when he also takes on gunslingers to cause mayhem about town, Luther is killed and suddenly Dayton is pitted against his friend Cassidy. Can the two men be reconciled and defeat the gunslingers?

Dead by Sundown available on Kindle

My Black Horse Western Dead by Sundown is now available for pre-order from Amazon. The book will be released at the end of the month.

There's good news and bad news about the cover in that the original cover, shown below, was my favourite Black Horse picture. It perfectly tied in with the title as well as being a great picture. But it seems that Hale are now re-issuing all their western e-books with a standard cover of a rider silhouetted against a setting sun. As it turns out this is great news for me as it accidentally ties in perfectly with the title too!

Anyhow the book is now available at and It's the only western story I've written that does the revenge story, although in this case it picks up the tale five years after the hero embarked on his quest for revenge at a time when he's starting to question why he's still bothering...

When Galen Benitez killed Mike Donohue’s wife, Mike vowed to get his revenge that very day. But it took five long years before he tracked the outlaw down to the inhospitable region known as the Cauldron. Here, Mike meets the beguiling Lucy Reynolds who is searching for the legendary lost city of Entoro, a place rumoured to have its streets paved with gold. As Mike suspects that Galen might also be searching for the treasure, he decides to help her.

With Galen still at large, and now Lucy’s jealous admirer determined to kill him, Mike will need his trusty six-shooter to ensure that he isn’t the one who is dead by sundown.
