John Deacon
John Deacon was born six months before man landed on the moon. He was blessed to grow up in the country, where his family primarily lived off the land.

When he was not busy exploring the woods, fishing, or weeding the garden, he devoured comics like “The Rawhide Kid” and “Two Gun Kid” before he moved on to the exciting adventure stories of Louis L’Amour and Jack London.

Their black and white TV only got three channels, but you could lose one and pick another one up if you went outside and fiddled with the antenna. On its grainy screen, they’d watch “Bonanza” and “Gunsmoke”, and movies that starred Clint Eastwood and John Wayne.

John is now a dad and a husband, and loves exploring the West and reading fiction and history alike. His favorite authors include R. O. Lane, Elmore Leonard, Louis L’Amour, and C. J. Petit.

In his stories, he hopes to entertain his readers with fun stories of the old West. His bad guys are bad, his good guys are good, and you will always find a touch of romance to sweeten the grit.
