Anasazi Ruin is now available!
My next book, Anasazi Ruin, is almost ready to be released! It takes place in Chaco Canyon, NM in the 1100's A.D., so it's more of a pre-western I guess. The story follows a young man as he grows into adulthood during the glory years of the Anasazi occupation of Chaco and he is thrust into the action and drama of the downfall of the greatest civilization to ever exist in the ancient southwest.
I would love to read your books. I'm from the southwest and now live in the southeast. I get homesick for the desert from time to time and enjoy pouring into a good tale that reminds me of home.
Silverton Gold is now published! Available through amazon and other online as well as b/m bookstores, or direct from the publisher
I am hard at work on my latest book, Silverton Gold. It will be published this summer by Casa de Snapdragon Publishing Company in Albuquerque, NM.
The story follows a Pinkerton Detective as he tracks down a gang of outlaws who have been stealing gold off the Denver & Rio Grande as it travels through the mountains above Chama, NM. An interesting look into the mining activities around Silverton, Colorado in the 1890's as well. It's almost done!
I also saw that your favorite bookstore is having a signing for you on Saturday, 9/5/2009. What time? What's the format; is it a structured reading or are they gonna have a table for you to sign and chat with folks? Maybe I can make that and pick up your book and get a signature! It'd be cool to meet one of my LT folks. I've never been to that bookstore. Is it new only or does it have used also?
My latest book, The Preacher is now published!
THE PREACHER is an exciting story that follows an assassin bent on revenge after the death of his parents by Union forces. Trained to kill by none other than ‘Bloody Bill’ Anderson, the assassin is terrorizing the West. Deputy U.S. Marshal Jake Silver must hunt him down and bring him to justice before he kills again, and round up an entire network of criminal activity.
Available exclusively at
Hello Jon, I also have spent many moons hiking all over NM. Primarily in the Pecos Wilderness Area and North of there. Have been up there many times and know the country quite well. Fixing to plan another trip very soon. I'll get one of your books and read it.

Have a good day,
Hi Jon,

Thanks for the invite. I enjoy a mixed bag of genres, including westerns. I like Louis Lamour, Max Brand, Larry McMurtry, Elmore Leonard, etc. I am still in the process of loading up my library so more of my westerns are coming. I will certainly be on the look-out for your books. Cheers.

Be glad to help. Send over you e-mail address (mine is Might make communication easier.
Yeah, I do enjoy a good western. My favorite is The Virginian and the companion book by Wister, Out West, His Journals and Letters. Wister captures the Old West wonderfully.

And, yeah, I am also a new Mexican, a native actually.
