Background Information

As a child my father taught me a love of horseback riding and target shooting. I grew up in the fifties and sixties when westerns predominated television and the movies. It was a time when the distinctions between good and bad weren't as blurred as they seem today.. I stared writing westerns as a side hobby and have attempted to recreate the classic style of the thirties and forties while incorporating historical accuracy whenever possible.

Birth Place

Trail Hand, A Western Story
Published by Five Star Westerns, the "Trail Hand" is a classic western adventure novel in the tradition of Louis L'Amour, Zane Grey, Luke Short and Max Brand. A lone Trail rider finds himself guiding a herd of desperately needed horses from Mexico to Old California. He soon learns to respect and admire the Mexican vaqueros who accompany him on the long trek. While scouting away from the herd he is ambushed and left for dead. The Tailhand survives, only to find himself suspected of planning the viscious attack. To clear his name and win back the only woman he has ever truly loved, he must put himself between a gang of cutthroat rustlers and a group of vaqueros hell bent on catching and lynching the one they believe responsible for their loss, him. Combining historical accuracy and classic western themes the "Trail Hand" is a dynamic and adventourously good read.

A Very Shiny Nose
Dr. Ronald W. Stone a Veterinarian from Groveland, Florida has just finished his second novel,expected to be released in early 2010. A Very Shiny Nose was originally developed a few years ago as a Christmas story for his two young daughters. Recently accepted for publication it is somewhat of a cross between the classic holiday tale A Miracle on 34th Street and the veterinary classic All Creatures Great and Small. Written under the pen name R. W. Stone, this holiday tale concerns a widowed rural veterinarian who is unexpectedly called to the North Pole in order to find out why Rudolph's nose isn't glowing red this year. He has only hours to diagnose and cure Rudy, or the famous reindeer won't be able to guide the sleigh and as a consequence there will be no more Christmas. As if this isn't enough pressure, he also has to figure out what his young daughter's special Xmas wish is and fulfill it. At the same time he must deal with new emotions when he begins to fall in love with Santa's beautiful daughter. It is a tale for all ages groups, one the family will surely enjoy for many holidays to come. Due out in early 2010 it will initially be available direct from the publisher at It is expected to be at Amazon and other bookstores shortly after the new year.

Back with a Vengeance
When Will Grayson rode into the quiet town of Blue Lake Ridge all he hoped to do was cash in the gold he'd found after long months of prospecting up north in the Idaho gold fields. Grayson desperately needs to send the money to his family back home in order to save their ranch from foreclosure. Little does he suspect the danger that lurkes in this seemingly pleasant community. After only one night in town he is ambushed from behind, carried away and then left for dead. Miraculously surviving his injuries with the kind help of a old hermit, Grayson is later shocked to discover that the local bank has been robbed and he is now the prime suspect. With no way of knowing who the true villains are and with an entire town ready to shoot him on sight, he must devise a plan to retrieve his money and clear his name. From the author of the bestseller Trail Hand, R.W. Stone brings the old west alive with this action packed adventure.
