Working cowboy Kevin Warren debuts with the first in a thrilling new Western series, infusing 1889 Arizona Territory with his deep, first-hand knowledge of the cowboy life – its long trails, forest fires, unbroken horses, rough characters, and the vast landscapes of the wild West.
For fans of classic Westerns by Louis L’Amour, Zane Grey, and Ralph Compton.
Damnable news has reached Fort Verde. Outlaw Jessup Henry and his gang of thugs are raising hell north of Santa Fe, one homestead massacre after another. Now they’re on the run in Arizona Territory evading the law. Cavalryman Tom Skinner’s command is ordered south to find and engage the outlaws. But Skinner knows the land. Military decree be damned, he’s deserting the wayward route—against orders—for the right one. There’s more at risk than his career. In Jessup’s path is the vulnerable ranch of his newfound love, Veronica, and her family.
After a race to deliverance, Skinner arrives too late. Veronica and her brothers are still alive but what his courageous gal’s been through pushes Skinner over the edge. Now it’s a breakneck gallop toward vengeance. Every outlaw on the Mogollon Rim is a target. Every bone-jarring mile is more treacherous than the last. This aims to be the bloodiest road a soldier’s ever tread. For Skinner and his prey, the one who rides hardest will be the last one alive.
The Night Holds Terror
Set in the red rock country of central Arizona, the sequel, picks up where Ride a Fast Horse leaves off.
WRITING FOR ME IS HARD WORK AND A CURIOUS ENDEAVOR. YOU NEVER KNOW WHATS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT OR HOW.
"If you're a city slicker who stays away from western and cowboy novels because you think you can't relate to the characters, let me disabuse you of that notion. Ride A Fast Horse is metaphorical. A love story about people who know what love is and people who don't. About bad people and good people some of whom play it safe while others are driven by passion. Kevin Warren is a storyteller, and while he is obviously quite knowledgeable about the time and place he describes in his book, his understanding of the human condition is in the proud tradition of the wonderful western writers that have preceded him."

"Regardless of what genre you tend to stick to, give this book a chance! It's an amazing combination of heart, toughness, suspense and action brought to you with such description, that you'd swear that you were there too! A very difficult book to put down once you set eyes on the first page." Jerry
