About the Author
Jim West was born and raised in Texas. Following an unscheduled interruption in his college education, Jim served a tour in the U.S. Navy in photo intelligence. After that and college completion, Jim joined the U.S. Air Force as a pilot, retiring in 1989.
Next, American Airlines lowered their standards and allowed Jim to be one of their family of pilots. Retiring after sixteen years, Jim began writing, and this is his fourth published novel.
Finally, with ample time on Jim’s hands, writing became the primary focus of the spare time left over from running his ranch and competitive team roping. Telling a good story has long been a Texas tradition, even if it involves some fabrication of the facts.
