End of July
- Thursday, 27 July 2017 05:47
It’s been hot here. Well hot for us, in the low 90s. The grass is finally starting to turn a rich summer tan, but all of our springs are still running. The buffalo love these secret water sources hidden in treed drainages around the ranch.
We’re having fun working on PEOPLE OF THE CANYONS, about the Fremont culture–such a fascinating prehistoric people!
On these hot days, keep in mind that the cool temperatures of autumn are just around the corner.

JUST BACK FROM THRILLERFEST in New York!
- Tuesday, 18 July 2017 09:14
We just returned from ThrillerFest in New York. This is the finest writers’ conference in America. One of the best parts is just sitting around and catching up with old friends. But THE best part this year was getting the new galley of Mike’s civil war novel, THIS SCORCHED EARTH, which comes out in April of 2018. Our editor, Claire Eddy, is doing such a beautiful job with this book. Thanks to everyone at Forge Books for all their hard work.
Hope you are all happy and healthy, and having a wonderful July.

Ah, April in Wyoming…
- Sunday, 09 April 2017 09:39
It’s a snowy day here. We are in the midst of a good old fashioned Wyoming spring blizzard. The wild turkeys are huddled in the trees around the house with their heads tucked beneath their wings in defense. The buffalo, of course, are out frolicking in the meadow. They love this cool spring weather.
Hope you are all happy and healthy today!
Happy April Snow Showers!

More snow last night, and it’s still coming down this morning. If we can just get some warmer nighttime temperatures, the wildflowers should be amazing.
A snowy April day in Wyoming

We woke this morning to find four inches of fresh snow covering the red cliffs, and forty-nine elk standing on the mountain slope in front of the house. We made coffee and sat in front of the window to watch them peacefully graze down the mountain to the creek below. As we did, we could hear the buffalo calling to each other in the meadow. They love cool spring mornings best of all. There’s new green grass, but no biting flies yet.
Perfection is made of April mornings like this…
Hope you have a peaceful and perfect day!
