*********************************************************

The western movement during the 19th century played a major role in the history of America. 

Here was born the mountain men, cowboys, gunfighters, outlaws, and the
lawmen who tamed a wild country.  It was also a land made up of all manner of people, shopkeepers, bartenders, blacksmith's, teamsters, and the extraordinary women
who held hearth and home together.

It was a land where a man's honor was in his spoken word and his handshake.

It wasn’t a myth, as some claim it was, it really happened, the "Old West" as it is called,

was an historical fact.




But -- does it have to be written in the "western formula" fashion of the 1940's and 50's?
The same story over and again.

Why can't a novel set in the 19th century American West tell a story about the people of that time, the situations they encounter, and the problems they overcome in a realistic manner?
Why can't such a story fit into the modern categories of Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Crime,
Police Procedural, and Conspiracy?

That is what I do with my Western novels. Actually, they can be called 19th Century Historical Fiction of the Westward Movement.  Each is a unique story, historically accurate to the time period, and not the Hollywood version of the 19th century West.
They plot around mystery, suspense, investigations, lawmen, crooks, private investigators,
crimes to be solved, and conspiracies to overcome.

Read a couple and you will find that these are not your typical westerns.

In addition to this, my novels are free from sexual content and profanity.
I have been told by certain editors that these are "necessary" ingredients for today's novels, but I don't accept that, and I see no purpose for their inclusion.
Such content adds nothing to the story, but rather detracts from it.
A good storyteller doesn't need these gimmicks to attract readers, as the readers of my novels who have downloaded literally millions of library pages and thousands of Kindle ebooks, have proven.

Thank you all for reading. I appreciate every one of you.

Thanks to all my readers who have written such positive and glowing
reviews on my Amazon page.
It is your genuine reactions to my novels that is
the true test.

A Pack of Scoundrels



The sequel to “Buck the Tiger”

Butte, Montana is poised on the verge of a copper boom. The scent of money draws the unscrupulous like blood draws wolves.

Gordon Fox, a man reclusive and arcane, has been drawn in with the intent of establishing a criminal organization that will take control of the copper market.

Bella Priest, the New Orleans assassin, is following the scent to Butte with her entourage of scoundrels. Fox has recruited Bella for his partner, but Bella has plans of her own.

Fred Pickett hires Virgil Creede to secretly carry documents to Butte to finalize his investment in a huge copper prospect. When Virgil is attacked in an effort to steal the documents, and an attempt is made on Fred’s life, Virgil sets out to find who is behind it.


Pinkerton Agents Hawkes and Greene begin digging into the swirl of mysteries surrounding the attacks. What they find boils down to one unsettling impression, the Chicago syndicate they crushed three years previously is not as dead as they thought.

Outdoor Fiction is Back
with the Northwest Suspense Collection

Contemporary stories of courage and strength.
Set in the rural or wilderness country
of the vast Northwest from Alaska to Montana.
Stories reflective of yesterday's outdoor story masters.



Northwest Suspense Collection

The green forests of the Cascade and Coastal mountains,
the rugged peaks of the Rockies, and the wilds
of Alaska create a backdrop of quiet beauty.
Yet, even in these pristine vistas crime happens.
Families are shaken, lives and livelihoods disrupted
and life as it was is forever changed.
Yet, the strength and perseverance of the people
overcome the difficulties.

Dave's newest line of novels are for young adult and adult readers.
The stories are set in the U.S. Northwest states with a
rural or wilderness setting and involve the people
and families who make their livings from the woods and small towns.

The focus is on families, in particular the young adults in them,
who struggle, win, lose, and find their strength through
the bonds of family and friends.


All novels are available through Amazon.com, Ingram, and Baker Taylor

Latest Northwest Suspense Release




Run Down the Sun


A botched poaching attempt, resulting in the murder of two Glacier National Park rangers, initially points to Earl Talbot as the killer, a reprobate from a Montana family with a 150-year criminal history behind them.

Flathead County Sheriff’s Sergeant Jake Fontaine and Detective Tiger Reagan believe they have an open-and-shut case with Talbot’s arrest until an unidentified bootprint at the murder scene and a stained area on Earl’s blood splattered jeans with DNA belonging to another person makes them question their ‘facts’.

Digging deeper, Jake and Tiger uncover a maze of suspects and seemingly unrelated evidence, but after three more murders their answer becomes clear and culminates with a desperate chase through the rugged Montana mountains to catch the killer before he crosses the border and disappears into the Canadian wilderness forever.

All of you fly Fly Fishing enthusiasts know how hard it is to find real American hand tied flies these days.

Flies that are tied with top of the line materials. The trend for many stores is to buy in mass bulk from the cheapest foreign sources possible and pass them off to you at the same price of American tied flies.  

I have been tying professionally for over 35 years. 

 If the fly is not one I would use, then you won't end up with it either.

Come to my web fly shop - Autumn Drift Flies            

for your Trout dries, wets, nymphs, and streamers.
                            You will also find Steelhead and Pacific Salmon Flies,                               in addition to Wall and Desk Displays as well.
