STRANDED: A Story of Frontier SurvivalI am pleased to announce that my novel, STRANDED: A STORY OF FRONTIER SURVIVAL, has won the 2018 Spur Award for Best Western Juvenile Fiction from Western Writers of America.

This grand news, following on the heels of the announcement that STRANDED won the 2018 Wrangler Award for Outstanding Western Novel, has left me smiling. Humility be darned, I am one proud papa.

BONUS: As this is my second Spur Award (my first was in 2013 for Best Western Novel for TUCKER’S RECKONING), I’ve been told that now my horse will no longer gallop in circles…. Onward!

Most of all, my heartiest congratulations to this year’s Spur Award winners and finalists. I am honored to be in such grand company. And I hope to see you all in Billings in June at the annual WWA Convention!
