Meet the Author

Born in Ohio, and moved to Arizona as a young boy, B.K. Gore found at a young age on that Sonoran Desert, that along with the long views of Far Country, he had a love for story telling. That creates a problem for a young fella though. The trouble with youth, for a writer, is a shortage of experience. Life experience being the raw materials which a writer needs to build his stories, it makes writing a tougher go for the young.As a teenager, his first love was horses and cowboyin'; with no way to make a living, telling stories, having occurred to him anyway.The years took him from wrangling and cowboying as a teenager, through two hitches in the U.S. Army; from which he was evicted after he got busted up and the army claimed he was too stove up to soldier any more. So, he went back to cowboyin' for a good number of years, 'cause he was too dumb to do anything else!Mixed in there, before, in between and after the army, was a stint in the copper mines of Arizona, the oil fields in New Mexico, more ranches and farms, and even a few runs at carpet cleaning, selling hardware, driving truck and producing custom leather goods. Whatever it took to pay the bills.In between the town jobs, were the ranches, farms and bull studs, where the horses, cows and mules, always pulled him back.All along the way, unrealized at the time, he was amassing a stock of experience from which to carve new stories, and honing his skills at spinning those tales.It wasn't until he crossed over onto the shady side of the mountain, that he recognized that people seemed to actually enjoy his stories, and and at the same time, stumbled upon the vehicle he could use to present his tales to the public.So now, he spends his time, building his tales of Honor, Betrayal, and Lonely Courage, wherever he sets his boondock camps.He is a, Vagabond, story telling, cowboy biker, living on the road, and banging around the west he loves.

    Fast paced romantic and suspense

    I really enjoyed this one with two major heart wrenching themes, the author managed humor and love making the plot well surprisingly well rounded.

    Good book, just needs an editor

    Good story, but the writer has a bad habbit of telling you exactly what upcoming plot twists to expect two to three pages before they occur. While it doesnt ruin the story, its like watching a movie with that annoying friend who already saw it an keeps saying, "oh watch this part, you're not gonna believe what he does to that girl."

    There is no way you could have ever expected how annoyed you would be by it. Words words words. BOOM! Suddenly annoyance. You feel like you already knew what was going to happen...oh wait...you did, beause the author already told you it was about to.
