Meet the Author

William Cecil Knott was born on August 7, 1927, in Boston, MA.

He was best known as a Western writer and contributed to three long-running series–Longarm, the Trailsman, and Slocum–as well as working on other series and writing stand-alone traditional Western novels under his own name. He felt that the western genre was a more modern version of Greek tragedy—and that was how wrote his westerns.

He also wrote several mystery novels, some house-name men’s adventure yarns, and a number of mystery, science fiction, and sports books for the young adult market.

He died October 24, 2008.
