About the author

Bob Giel

<p> I have loved the western genre since I was a kid, and the grit and the determination of the people that carved a way of life out of the frontier have helped to shape the way I live my own life.&nbsp; Because of that era, I keep my word, I finish what I start and I&#39;m a true friend.</p> <p> Born in New York City and living now in New Jersey, I&#39;ve lived in several areas of the midwest but have never resided in any area that could be termed the West.&nbsp; However, I&#39;ve absorbed so much of the West through books, movies and TV that I feel like I have been there.&nbsp; The colors, sounds and images stay vividly enough in my mind that I can believe I have experienced them.</p>
