Surprise New Anthology of Western Short Stories
Dusty Saddle Publishing caught me completely off-guard. Here I was, minding my own business, chipping away at the third Emmett Strong novel, when the Western publisher contacted me and made an offer to publish my short story. The only hitch? I hadn’t yet written a short story. And they wanted to go to press within a matter of weeks.
The Birth of a New Western Hero
I was honored and thrilled to work in collaboration with Dusty Saddle. So for just a few weeks, I set Emmett Strong aside and created a new hero of the Old West–Lew Coulter.
Coulter is marshal of the wild and woolly town of Santa Angela, Texas, until the town’s saloon and bed-house owners decide his morals are putting a crimp in their profits. When a storied lawman from Kansas shows up, it seems he wants not only Coulter’s job but also his girl…and more. But there’s only so much a man like Coulter will put up with.
When Outlaws Tangle
My Lew Coulter short story, When Outlaws Tangle, is one of six quick reads featured in Dusty Saddle’s Western anthology, Six Bullets to Sundown. Currently available for Kindle readers, the volume will also be released this summer in paperback and audio book formats.
