When two bounty hunters meet unexpectedly, after months of avoiding each other, suspicions boil over—why would either be in a remote, one-horse town like Wellhead? Tidy Callaghan is just passing through; Scully O’Sullivan is in town for a reason and Tidy is determined to discover what it is.
So begins a hell-for-leather tale of intrigue, bluff and deadly gunfights.
"Cracking novella. Capture the dry, dusty heat of the American mid-West perfectly. I want to be a bounty hunter now. And only £1.35 - well worth it for a weekend in the Wild West!" Richard on Amazon, 7 February 2016.
"A gripping read with well drawn characters and bite size chapters that always tempt you to one more chomp! Looking forward to the next one ..." Amazon Customer, 2 March 2016.
"A great read to be devoured all in one go - there is a good twist at the end of the story explaining why one of the characters has been dressed as he has! I could easily imagine all the characters on screen, Spaghetti Western style filming." Amazon Customer, 26 February 2016.
"A generous helping of escapism to the Wild West. Highly recommended novella from this up and coming author. Looking forward to the continuation…." Amazon Customer, 18 March 2016.
As a child I was a voracious reader, but mainly of non-fiction and, living in South Africa, I had a particular interest in books about African wildlife, such as "Operation Rhino". As an adult I now read more fiction than non-fiction and my favourite novels include; Watership Down (Richard Adams), The Killer Angels (Michael Shaara), Of Mice and Men (John Steinbeck), The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (John Boyne), Twelve Years a Slave (Solomon Northup) and Lonesome Dove (Larry McMurtry).
I have always wanted to write a novel, but for many years could not find a style or subject that enthused me sufficiently to put the time aside to write one. I have a great interest in history and one day picked up a copy of The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara. It is a wonderful telling of the Battle of Gettysburg and it provided me with an idea for the structure of my novels and also the subject matter. My debut novel, The Battle of Paardeberg: Lord Roberts' Gambit, the story of a key battle of the Boer War in 1900, was the result.
My first western novella, The Bounty Hunters, came to me during a sleepless night. It is inspired by the Spaghetti Westerns I used to watch as a child. It is the first in a series of potentially five stories about a pair of alienated Bounty Hunter cousins who meet unexpectedly in a remote cattle town.
When I am not writing or reading I enjoy photography, cycling and the red wines of South Africa and South America.
