Robert J. Conley is an American and Cherokee author of fiction. He was born on December 29, 1940 in Cushing, Oklahoma, and passed away on February 16, 2014. He was also known by the name of Robert Jackson Conley, his full given name. He received the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007 from the Native Writers’ Circle of the Americas.

Robert J. Conley was a member of the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians. This is a tribe of American Indians that is federally recognized. He is known in his writing for making descriptions of historical Cherokee figures and Indians before they made contact with the white man.

He is fairly well known for writing the Real People series, a series of books. The Dark Island was the sixth book in this series and it received the Spur Award for the best Western novel all the way back in 1995. He would receive two more Spur awards later, one for Yellow Bird, a short story. The other is for the novel Nickajack in 1992.

Conley was the first American Indian that was ever to head the Western Writers of America group at Western Carolina University, located in North Carolina. Conley would end up passing away in North Carolina in Sylva.

He has had three poem collections come out. The first came out in 1975 and is called 21 Poems. There would be two more that came out in the eighties. Conley also tried his hand at writing non fiction books too and would eventually release five books to the public on the topic of Cherokee and the nation, traditions, thoughts, medicine and more related to the tribe.

Robert J. Conley is the creator and writer of the Sheriff Go-Ahead Rider series of fiction. In 1990, the series kicked off when the very first book was published. Go-Ahead Rider is the debut novel in the series and it was followed by a sequel shortly after. To Make a Killing came out in 1994 and one year later the third book was released to audiences. It’s called Outside the Law.

Go-Ahead Rider is the first novel in the Sheriff Go-Ahead Rider series by author Robert J. Conley. Only from a person that is a member of the Cherokee tribe could you get this type of novel, directly drawn from what the author knows first hand and what he has inherited as his memories, his traditions, and his identity.

In this first novel, you will be enthralled as the reader as you watch Conley bring the traditions and his own special knowledge of his people to life. He brings you into another world entirely using his skilled words and his perception into the lives of the Cherokee people past and present to transport the reader into a world that is totally unlike the modern white civilized world (with far more races and colors in it now) of the modern day.

See all that Robert Jackson Conley has to offer in this dynamic first novel that focuses on the Cherokee nation! When a Harvard-educated Cherokee of mixed blood comes home to a small town in Oklahoma, he gets another education that he soon won’t forget. Soon this man is on the trail of a murderer after being deputized. But can he catch the killer or will it all be in vain? Read this thrilling first novel, Go Ahead Rider, by Conley to find out.

To Make A Killing is the second novel in the Rider series by acclaimed author Robert J. Conley. When it comes to action and adventure novels, look no further! The Cherokee capital of Tahlequah has braced itself to vote on another issue that involves a land grant as well as a prisoner that ends up being in a cell guarded and drunk while also being alone.

The only thing is that the prisoner has no way to defend himself. Which is a shame, since he ended up being shot at close range. He was, of course, killed. The perfect murder has been accomplished by Matthew Thomson, but one thing threatens to give it away.

That is the fact that the case just got personal when it comes to Sheriff Rider. His deputy is one of the suspects in this case, and he is going to do everything in his power to prove that his deputy was not the one responsible. Beehunter must be proven innocent at all costs, and Sheriff Rider is going to be the one to do it.

To kill someone like that when they have nowhere to go surely must be a deed that qualifies as an act that is spiritually evil. Now he must go to a medicine man if he wants to get the answers that he needs in order to find a killer, and the pressure is building on all sides.

Bureaucrats demand to know what answers he has for them, and Rider is doing his best to try and prove that Beehunter is innocent. When it comes to this case, Rider is going to have to think hard and piece the evidence together if he’s going to make sure that he can clear up the name of his friend.

Thomson is trying to escape being detected, even though the noose is slowly tightening around his neck. Can he do what he needs to do in order to try and catch the killer once and for all? This individual is going to be tough to catch and may even kill again.

This adventure takes your breath away and gets your heart pounding! The sequel in the series from Conley is sure to be a page turner. What will this Western adventure have to offer? You’ve got to pick up To Make A Killing to find out for sure!

Experience all of the beauty and the rough wildness of the frontier from an Indian’s point of view that is authentic. This murder mystery fictional novel is so inventive and gripping, you’ll be wanting to read it again. Move on to the third book in the series if you liked this one and read Outside the Law, the third book in the series by Robert J. Conley, if you want to find out how this trilogy ends!
