I'm proud to have a new short story, "Lost Mountain Pass," in this new anthology, THE TRADITIONAL WEST.  The story introduces a new character, Deputy U. S. Marshal Hank "Trusty" Snowden.  Trusty gets charged with escorting a judge back to Enid, Oklahoma, and encounters the sister of a band out of outlaws with troubles of her own. I hope you like it, and the other fine stories published in this collection of western stories.   ~~Larry

Your blog looks awesome, Larry. I'm from Oklahoma--in fact, my parents lived in Enid before I was born. I live in OKC now. I'm very honored to be a part of this collection, too, and am anxious to read your story.
