Gideon's Way

This is a brief glimpse into the world of Gideon Fletcher. He's a decent guy-- with a penchant for calamity. Life is just full of hiccups and never asks for Gideon's vote on anything. Neither does the sheriff. Or the judge. Or his court appointed guard, come to that.The town gossip says he's dangerous. The local law says he's trouble. The rivers say he's one of them-- whether he likes it or not. Gideon Fletcher doesn't figure what they say is worth buffalo spit. Life isn't about what 'they' say. It's about doing what you have to, with what you have, when you have to do it. It is also, in a way that only he can explain, about humanity's peculiar resemblance to poultry. And sometimes sheep. The RIVERS series is a clean read for adults to about the high school level. The descriptive writing is quirky, fun, and sometimes quite touching. The setting is loosely 18-ot American West. There are currently 3 full RIVERS novels available, with a fourth under construction. All titles can be read independently.

Between the Rivers

NEWLY REVISED VERSION 4/2017"Quirky, insightful, witty!"Sometimes life gives you exactly what you do not want, precisely when you need it most. That’s how it was for Gideon. Not that he was guilty, at least not of rustling, but folks were pretty well set on hanging him anyway. Don’t get me wrong, Caswell Crossing is full of good people. Some would even call themselves upstanding citizens.Have you ever tried to change the minds of ‘good folks’ when they're half convinced the swift application of a rope will solve all their problems? Thing is, to Gideon, the prospect of being hung counted as a bothersome inconvenience. Maybe he was just too busy fending off the Rivers's attempts to help him to take notice of such things.Drinking water, deep breaths, standing upside down-- nothing will change the fact that life is full of hiccups. Gideon's life is more full than most. This story is Intelligent & insightful in a way that holds true, not only for its loosely American West setting, but for today's coffee drinking Joe as well. Told with a 'sitting beside you on the couch' feeling, this is a 'clean' read. Though 1st in the RIVERS series, titles can be read independently.
