I've always enjoyed historical fiction. Previously, I published, Truncate, a suspense novel set in late Victorian London. My present novel also occurs in the same period, but its location is thousands of miles away in the rugged American Southwest­. A world apart from the metropolitan atmosphere of Victorian London. However, for me, it holds the same strong allure. The romantic and sturdy icon of the people in the American West coping with the later stages of the American frontier in the 19th century is instilled in American culture. I've always been a fan of this American epoch. It's from this inspiration that I spun a tale that involves the romance, conflicts, and human touch of this genre.
