An entertaining story of western life a generation ago when life was cheap, honor dear, and cowboys, bad men, hold-ups and sheriffs abundant. There is a dash of romance and a clever, though some-what involved plot which keeps the reader guessing.
When Julie Anne Nelson isn't working as a technical editor, she loves to live out her passion for young adult fiction through her writing. Her wildly popular The Sevens series was inspired by a Percy Shelley poem and, as our author of the day, she tells us all about it. Nelson also talks about her writing habits, her tendency to sneak extra books in between writing/editing the main series and how her teaching career inspired her to write for young adults.
