Still summer, but not for long…

We took the dogs for a walk at 4:00 AM this morning, and the sky was stunning. Orion, The Hand constellation in the Southeastern Ceremonial tradition, was blazing just over the mountain. Now, we are off to work on PEOPLE OF THE CANYONS.

New Books coming…

Hi All!

It’s been a busy August for us here in Wyoming. We turned in the final manuscript for STAR PATH, the latest book in the People of Cahokia series, and Kathleen also delivered the final manuscripts for the first books in her two new series: THE ICE LION, book 1 of the Rewinding Chronicles, and CRIES FROM THE LAST ISLAND, Book 1 of the Ancient Egypt Saga.

THE ICE LION is a science fiction novel set in a Pleistocene Ice Age future, and CRIES FROM THE LOST ISLAND is a fantasy novel set in modern America and Egypt about two teenage boys searching for the lost graves of Antony and Cleopatra.

It’s a real joy to be able to write very different kinds of archaeological stories. Keeps our creativity fresh and vibrant.

The bison are doing exceptionally well. We’ve had good rain this year, which means the grasses and wildflowers have been beautiful.

We hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer.

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
