Overview

When Lew Hobbs rode out of Camp Verde on a hot day in July, his biggestmistake was not continuing on down to Bandera. If he had, he never would have been accused of killing an old rancher down on the Frio and stealing his savings.

As if that wasn't enough to fan the fire, he soon found himself neck deep in Comanches, bushwhackers, and a mama desperate to marry off her two daughters, one who thought herself better that the good Lord; the other, a tomboy who sometimes needed a kick in the rear to get her attention.

But Lew is a survivor, and he has a plan to reclaim his good name and avoid any more trouble... including women.

Author Bio:Kent Conwell grew up in the wide-open Texas Panhandle in the town of Wheeler, population 848. His love for the West came from his grandfather, who had run away from his Tennessee home when he was 14, bullwhacking his way to the Panhandle where he met his future wife who had traveled from Illinois to Texas.

After moving to Fort Worth, Kent was more at home at the stockyards than school. Somehow, he managed to earn a B.S. and began teaching. Later, he moved to Port Neches where he acquired a M.Ed. and Ph.D. A successful educator, his love for writing about the West, a period in history unique to America, has never waned. He has won awards for short stories, screenplays, mysteries, and westerns.

Gunfight at Frio Canyon is Kent's twenty-fourth western for AVALON. He has also written two mysteries for AVALON that are available, Galveston and Skeletons of the Atchafalaya.
