Jon Land, author of THE RISING, says…

MAZE MASTER is getting some nice advance praise…

     “MAZE MASTER is a masterpiece of a bio-thriller that seamlessly melds science and superstition into a      tale as relentless as it is riveting. Kathleen Gear has lent credence and credibility to the end-of-the-world tale championed by the likes of WORLD WAR Z, I AM LEGEND, and Stephen King’s THE STAND. This is speculative storytelling at its level best, weaving cutting edge genetics into a puzzle that must be solved if mankind is to survive. A master of the historical novel, Gear proves herself equally adept at handling the future in this cure for the common thriller.”

“Landscape of Dreams: The Creative West,” 7 PM at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, April 19, 2018

Hi All,

Along with Emmy award-winning screenwriter, Kirk Ellis, we will be part of a conversation about creativity, the lure of the West, fiction, and film.  We’ll have book signings before and after the event.  We’re there to entertain and to answer any questions you might have about writing (which could also be entertaining).

Just some background…   Kirk Ellis has won the Emmy Award, Spur Award, and the Western Heritage Wrangler Award.  His screen credits include, “Anne Frank,” “Into the West,” and “John Adams.”  His work has been nominated for a total of 50 Emmy Awards.  

And!  Well, you know us.

 Come! We’d love to see you there!  It’ll be great fun:   WWA PressRelease -April20

New Review for MOON HUNT!

We just received a lovely review for MOON HUNT in the Providence Journal:

“Few authors have ever been able to lay claim to a genre. But Kathleen and Michael Gear have taken historical fiction and made it all their own, as clearly displayed in “Moon Hunt” (Forge, 416 pages, $26.99), the third in their Native American Morning Star series.

All the staples of the Gears’ brilliant, richly drawn tapestries are firmly on display here, once again… The Gears have reconstructed Moon Hunt’s ancient world with such vivid tones and expertly crafted detail that it magically comes to life in the tradition of James Michener. But they’re much better storytellers and the result is a tale certain to generate broad appeal, whether you’re a history buff or not.”

Providence Journal, December 19, 2017.

Thanks! It’s always a relief to get a great review!

Hope everyone is having warm and wonderful holidays!

Snowy Day

Hi All!

It’s a beautiful day here in Wyoming. We’ve had snow for the past two days, but it’s melting fast this morning. The wild turkeys are out flapping up to eat out of the bird feeders, and the buffalo are grazing the meadow in front of the house. High up on the mountain, a small herd of elk is bedded down in the snow en

enjoying the sunshine.

Our latest book in the Cahokia series just came out a few days ago!  MOON HUNT.  Hope you enjoy it!

Have a great day,

Mike and Kathy
