About the Author

Stephen Burckhardt was born in and raised in and around Wichita, KS. As a child, Stephen lived for a while on a ranch near Benton, KS. This is where Stephen developed a deep love for all things western. Being a proud member of the Cherokee nation only deepened his interest in history, animals, and native traditions.

After earning a degree in journalism from Wichita State University, Stephen spent years writing for various publications and eventually worked as a ghostwriter. One of his early assignments was writing a western for Luis Antwoord titled, Western: In the Company of Thieves. It was after this project, Stephen developed an insatiable desire to continue writing westerns under his own name.

To reach a wider market, Stephen decided to write his books as serial novellas instead of full novels. Each saga is divided into 5-6 novellas. When the saga is complete, all novellas will be released in a single volume collection with bonus material. The prices for the collection volumes will vary depending on the number of novellas included.

Stephen also holds a degree in forensic criminology and has studied business at Wichita State University. He was working on a third degree in nutrition when his life took a turn he never saw coming.

In 2013, Stephen met and married the love of his life, P.R. Burckhardt, whom he truly considers to be his “better half.” The couple was married at The Old Cowtown Museum in Wichita, KS. They currently live with their rescue dog, Shaggy.
