Linda Krpec was born and raised in Texas. I grew up in the 1950's and 1960's during a time when the biggest influence on kids growing up at that time was the heroes of the silver screen.

My first hero was "The Lone Ranger", others were Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Gene Autry, and too many others to list here. If they were cowboys, they were my heroes!
How I miss those days of watching and listening to those men who respected women and never used a bad word to make their point.

Harley Roquentin has a deep love for the American western. The beautiful, all encompassing landscapes of a Zane Grey novel, the gritty aesthetic of Sergio Leone’s films, and the brutal, rebellious passion of Clint Eastwood’s later projects all inflicted a deep mark onto the writer. The idea of the lone rider was especially impactful: a figure stuck in a time he didn’t belong in, entirely alone, but driven to make the new world a better place, resonated with the author in a profound way. Roquentin’s goal as a writer is to reproduce the same feelings of solidarity and fatal optimism that were such an incredible inspiration.
Roquentin is a student of political science, currently residing in Montreal, Canada.
