I am now writing the third sequel to my amazon number one best-selling western paperback Strongheart (Berkley-Penguin Group, 2011). The first sequel was Blood Feather which was one of three finalists in the Colorado Authors League 2014 competition for "Best Mainstream Novel," although it was a western. The second sequel was The Indian Ring, which is now being edited by my publisher and prepared for publication and worldwide release in 2015. I am currently writing The Rider of Phantom Canyon, the third sequel, which will be released worldwide in late 2015 or in 2016 by my publisher Berkley/Penguin-Random House.(less)
