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!

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.

Stories that might carry them away to a dusty trail, or cold mountain pass. One that can cause them to hear the wind in the grass, the lowing of the cattle, or even smell the acrid scent of burned gunpowder. I truly want to thank all those who read my stories. You are always first in my mind as the pages unfold on the other side of my key board. Thank you, and may the Good Lord bless you!
I have always been a cowgirl at heart even though I have lived my whole life either on the West Coast of Canada and the USA., but our road trips always draw us east and south. Montana, Wyoming, Colorado; these are places where my imagination runs wild.
I’ve been an artist/writer all my life, painting and writing about my first passion; the West. I also found a nitch with painting pet portraits and animal studies. Now that I am retired, I can indulge in the things I love the most; my husband, my animals, my art and my writing. I’m busier now than I have ever been before, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Chace has had a passion for writing since the 1980’s. Although he had written articles for outdoor publications, he never reached the pinnacle of ‘the big three’. You know, Outdoor Life, Field and Stream, and Sports Afield. His best was a personality profile for Alaska Magazine and some one-minute outdoor pieces for KIAK radio in Fairbanks Alaska. Over the years, he wrote the occasional Op-Ed article for newspapers and such. Major life changes occurred, and his writing ceased. He produced nothing. But he always had this book idea in the back of his mind that would assert itself every once in a while. About fifteen years ago, he gave in and started writing it, just to get it out on paper. I hope you enjoy it, and please provide constructive criticism. Tell him what you like, and especially, what you don’t like.
