John Tenkiller got his name in the usual way…from his father. What was unusual was how seriously he took it. This is a classic western filled with suspense, and an underlying romance. In the Louis L’Amour tradition.

Before she started writing in 1985, Kat was a real estate broker. During that time, she met her husband, L. J. Martin, author of more than thirty books, both westerns and mysteries.

“I love anything old,” Kat says. “I love to travel and especially like to visit the places where my books are set. My husband and I often stay in out-of-the-way inns and houses built in times past. It’s fun and it gives a wonderful sense of a by-gone era.”
