J.L. Crafts

J.L. Crafts was raised on the outskirts of a very large city in Southern California. Thankfully, back in those days, the very distant outskirts of that city still included open spaces and small ranches. As a young boy, he worked wrangling horses on one of those ranches learning to rope, ride, and train one of the most magnificent animals our planet has to offer. Those early years created a lifelong connection with not only horses but with the West of the 1800’s. College led to law school followed by over thirty years of trying cases to juries up and down the state of California. Speaking to juries in a simple directness, he did what he could to elicit facts and arguments wherever possible through stories of life in the saddle and open spaces. He now spends his days creating those stories on the page and enjoys every minute of it.

Dick Brown

Dick Brown

Dick Brown has always been fascinated by western history – mountain men, wagon trains, gold rushes, cattle drives, notorious outlaws, ghost towns, and transcontinental railroads; however, he has concentrated much of his recent writing on one region of the American West in particular – the Grand Canyon. He has spent decades researching the early pioneers and the Canyon’s bumpy road from unbridled backcountry to a national park. It is the venerable pioneers of the late nineteenth century, with their struggles to survive and thrive on the ragged edge of this tremendous abyss, that inspired Dick to write this historical novel. The story is based on his own exploration below the rims of the Canyon, on the Colorado River, on the twisted trails, on a mule named Hank, in the copper mines, and at the sites of primitive camps and lodges of a bygone era. During his writing career, Dick has authored and co-authored five award-winning books and has been published in numerous periodicals. He is a retired systems engineer and president of the Grand Canyon Historical Society. As a former Navy submariner, he is a regular contributor to the journal The Submarine Review. He is also past editor of the magazine Ballooning. Dick lives in the forested mountains of central New Mexico, enjoying retirement with his wife and two feral cats.
