THE OWEN WISTER AWARD! Who would’ve thought?

Hi All,

It’s been a surprising and wonderful day here in Wyoming. We were just notified that we will be receiving the Owen Wister Award, which is the highest honor a Western writer can receive, and we will be inducted into the Western Writers of America Hall of Fame this summer.

It’s a pleasure and a privilege to be able to tell stories about the frontier and the people who, for over 20,000 years, have lived and died facing its challenges. Thanks to all of you for caring about their stories. We can’t do what we love without readers.

Cheers!

Michael and Kathleen

2019 INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS!

Hi All, It’s a beautiful summer here, in the 70s, and we’ve had a lot of rain. The buffalo are so happy wading around in deep grass and wildflowers. Just wanted to let you know that the INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS were announced yesterday and Kathleen’s book, MAZE MASTER, won the award for best SCIENCE FICTION NOVEL. Interestingly, it was also a finalist in the best thriller category! We are especially grateful for all the hard work of the judges. They had over 2,000 entries in the competition. Hope you are all doing well. Michael and Kathleen
