One of the most fun aspects of writing a book is researching the characters and the world that you’re creating. I particularly enjoy all the weird and wonderful places that the characters take me too. It’s always a good excuse to discover new books and to learn about new things!

I have some really exciting news for you, there are big changes coming with my books. I’ve decided to combine all three books in The Doc Holliday Series into one big book called A Gentleman in Hell, which will be available as an e-book and paperback.
