Johnny D Boggs


USA flag (b.1962)

Johnny D. Boggs has worked cattle, been bucked off horses (breaking two ribs last time), shot rapids in a canoe, hiked across mountains and deserts, traipsed around ghost towns, and spent hours poring over microfilm in library archives -- all in the name of finding a good story. He was won six Spur Awards from Western Writers of America, a Western Heritage Wrangler Award from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, and has been called by Booklist magazine "among the best western writers at work today." He also writes for numerous magazines, including True West, Wild West, Boys' Life and Western Art & Architecture, speaks and lectures often, studies old movies (Westerns and film noir) and even finds time to coach Little League. A native of South Carolina and former newspaper journalist, he lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with his wife and son.

Murder in the Melting Pot (2018)
Jane Isenberg
"Fast-paced yet serious, populated with quirky characters with plenty of depth, Murder in the Melting Pot offers a feminist take on the contemporary West while providing a satisfying mystery that should appeal to all sexes. Jane Isenberg dishes up another winner."
thumb
Line of Glory (2018)
Thomas D Clagett
"Riveting, rollicking and a rip-snorting good read."

Slate Creek (2017)
(Journey to the White Clouds)
Wallace J Swenson
"Wallace J. Swenson writes with sass, authority and style."
