It is most gratifying to see my new novel – Ghost of the Fawn, released yesterday, have enough sales to already be in the top 50 in its best category on Amazon. It was written as a young adult but has been very well received by adult readers. Terrific news, my first cross-over book.
Ghost of the Fawn is set in 2015 but flashbacks to the 1800s through the protagonist, a 17-year-old from Chicago, Jimmy Bison-Man’s, family and tribe. The extended Bison-Man family and his tribe the Arapaho, he knows nothing about, but this summer in Wyoming Jimmy intends to find out and maybe live the life of his heritage. From Hell’s Half Acre to Casper, The Wind River Reservation, the Medicine Wheel and Hole in the Wall it is quite a Wyoming adventure.

If, like me, you don’t always click links, here is a tiny preview. To set up this clip, it is from page 78 of the 211-page book. I picked it randomly and hope you enjoy.
Two men sky-lined, walking the ridge, could be arrowhead hunters he thought, but they were wearing yellow hats. Looked like workers hard hats, odd for arrowhead hunters. Jimmy watched them until they disappeared down a small rise. After a few minutes when they did not reappear, Jimmy stood up, brushed off the back of his jeans, and turned back north, it was time to wake Robert.
The bullet sizzled past, inches above his head before he heard the shot. Jimmy hit the ground rolling and in seconds was in the safety of the opening under the arch. The area underneath was nearly invisible from all sides, and a small rise completely blocked it from the west. The shooters were on the west bank, maybe five or six hundred yards away. They were a few feet higher than Jimmy but now hidden from view. It had to be the two he had watched sky-lining on the western bank, but he could not, for any reason, understand why they would shot at him.

Thanks for reading now back to work – not really, I was up way too late last night watching the Wyoming Cowboy football game – a big win. Now, I am sitting in my easy chair with my laptop and watching Rockies baseball, later Texas & Notre Dame.
