About the Author
D. B. Woodling calls Missouri home where she shares space with her husband, Orphan Annie (a recycled Labrador), Smedley (a wayward Beagle), PJ and Charley (Smedley’s Partners in Grime), a cat named Isadore (The Great White Hunter), and two horses that often whinny their resentment of her Harley Davidson Motorcycle. A novelist for many years, Shannon's Land is definitely a departure from Write Off, the first of her Detective Michael Malone series and her two young adult novels, Slices and The Turning. Although the author once considered psychological and political thrillers her niche, she is contemplating a sequel to this western.
