Based On: 
a passion project
Logline: 
In the Arizona Territory circa 1860s, a strong-willed young woman raised to be a bounty hunter struggles to find a better life.
Synopsis/Details: 

When a skinny and unwanted child raised to be a bounty hunter blossoms into a handsome young woman, she wants to believe there is more to life than shooting people and collecting rewards. She longs to put her guns away and settle down, but first, she must track down the ruthless outlaws who have killed the man she had hoped to marry. Accompanied by a twelve-year-old orphan boy who shares her dreams for a better life, she sets out in a mule-drawn wagon in pursuit of the killers and vows to bring them to justice—Dead or Alive.

This project started its life several years ago as a speculative movie script. A producer who read an early version suggested I turn it into a novel or novella to make it more "marketable" in Hollywood. Her suggestion may have been her polite way of saying NO or a reflection of the fact Westerns are a passe genre which are difficult to finance. Whatever the case, I took her advice and an ebook written in my very own spartan style of prose has been published. I "gifted" the same producer a copy and she still asserts, "...this story has legs!"

As a writer, my voice is character driven, slightly dark and quirky with a dash of humor. Many of my... Go to bio
