If there was a Saturday early showing, Dusty was always there with Hoppy, Roy and Gene. He went to roundup at seven years of age, sat on a genuine stallion and watched them brand calves on the Peterson Ranch in a place named Othello, Washington. At the point when his family vacated to Arizona from the Midwest, at age 13, he knew he’d gone to paradise. His very own steed, farms to chip away at, rodeos to drive in, Dusty’s mom stressed all his development years he’d end up being some “old cattle rustler bum.”

He read each western novel and story book on the library racks. He sat on the stoop of Zane Gray’s lodge on Mrs. Winter’s farm and watched out over the “muggie-own” edge and guaranteed the author’s apparition that his own book would join Gray’s some time or another on the book rack.

Since English instructors never read westerns, he wrote book reports like “Weapons on the Brazos” by J.P. Jones. The account of a Texas Ranger who spares the city and the young lady. At that point he sold them for a US dollar to different young men to lethargic to peruse when adolescents were fortunate to procure fifty pennies 60 minutes. Truth be told, book reports made him and his pal to be in gas cash to backtrack and forward to secondary school.

Subsequent to moving on from Arizona State College in 1960, he came to northwest Arkansas, farmed, auctioneered, reported rodeo, worked 32 years for Tyson Food in administration, tied down TV news and attempted to get his very own book sold. The three prior books on the rundown were distributed without his insight and just found a year back as existing.

In 1992, his first book, Noble’s Way was distributed. In 2003, his book The Natural won the Oklahoma Writer’s Federation Fiction Book of the Year Award. In 2004, The Abilene Trail won the same honor. Dusty contributes a ton of his time helping other people who need to figure out how to compose by talking at courses and gatherings everywhere throughout the United States. There is no difference in composing any sort of fiction. In Dusty’s words, “You basically change the sets, outfits and lingo.”

He is on the leading group of Ozark Creative Writers Conference held yearly in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and in addition on the sheets of the Ozarks Writers League in Branson, Missouri, and the Oklahoma Writers Federation. He likewise serves on the leading body of his neighborhood electric community, and of the Springdale, Arkansas PRCA rodeo. He is a past board individual from the Western Writers of America. In 2004 he was accepted into the Arkansas Writers Hall of Fame.

This year, his 65th book will have been distributed under his own particular name and pen names. That does not tally his five dozen or more short stories and several articles and segments.

Dusty and his wife, Pat, live by Beaver Lake east of Springdale, Arkansas, that is at whatever point they aren’t off at talking engagements or composing meetings, reporting rodeos or chuckwagon dashing, or looking into for western books. He and his wife have two magnificent little girls, Ann and Rhonda, two incredible child in laws, and four super fantastic children from ages 12 to 20. If he can take time to do it, Dusty likes to angle for trout on the White River in Arkansas…

Some of his books include;

1. Valley Of Bones


The Byrnes family adventure proceeds in this epic novel by Western Heritage, Western Writers of America, and Spur Award winning Dusty Richards, beginning with a trailblazing crossroads in our country’s history—and completion in bloodsoaked retribution . . .

A point of interest deed of development is going to change the American West until the end of time. With electric links extending from the Colorado River to Gallup, New Mexico, another broadcast framework will associate the pilgrims of the Arizona Territory to rest of the nation—a blessing from heaven for farmer Chet Byrnes and his family. In any case, laying four hundred miles of steel wire can be a destructive errand. Chet needs to go head to head with employed associates who might slaughter to undermine the task. Chet’s nephew JD has his hands full with relentless rustlers on the Mexican fringe. What’s more, a couple of fugitives from Chet’s past have come looking for reprisal for the hangings of the Reynolds tribe—vindicate that must be paid with Byrnes family blood.

Dusty Richards composes. . with the kind of the genuine West. Elmer Kelton

“In the most recent portion of his epic Byrnes family adventure, Western Heritage and Spur Award-winning creator Dusty Richards recounts the blood that was spilled attempting to make Arizona Territory a decent place to live”

Farmer, gunslinger, and family man, Chet Byrnes lives to tame the deserts of Arizona, yet if the mail can’t traverse, he knows human advancement won’t flourish. At the point when a rich head honcho s endeavor to establish a postal course in forsaken northern Arizona vacillates, Chet steers. Riding a buckboard crosswise over open, unfriendly nation, Chet embarks to convey the mail.” “However a trio of shooters snares him in the desert. They crush his buckboard, yet commit the lethal error of leaving Chet alive. In a period when the cost of a stamp was paid in blood, Chet Byrnes will pioneer a trail over the west to make Arizona ok for the U.S. mail or pass on attempting.

Dusty takes perusers into the genuine west at full dash. “New York Times “top rated creator Jodi Thomas”

3. Texas Badge


Bank burglary. Escape. Slaughter. Alone, each would send great people reeling. In any case, when every one of the three happens around the same time in the same little South Texas town deserting no observers, it could be the apocalypse. Saddler County Sheriff Dell Hoffman is accused of bringing the culprits of these horrific violations to equity, yet even the hardest and most shrewd lawman in Texas has his points of confinement. With nothing to go ahead except for five bleeding bodies, a split safe, and a vacant correctional facility, Dell works the edge of his lethargic western town-the overlooked, the imperceptible, and the individuals who frequently see without being seen. The more he adapts, however, the more he wishes he could overlook. Looking for reality, Dell gets himself maneuvered into a dim universe of homicide, duplicity, and mercilessness any semblance of which he never envisioned. Will he fathom the most intolerable wrongdoing in Texas history? On the other hand will Dell’s drive for equity lead him to a considerably more prominent disaster for both himself and those he tends to most?
