Ken Colemanabout this book: This book is a different take on the western genre in that the main character is unlike the usual stereotype of western heroes. He is a disabled and malformed cripple who is forced by circumstances to defend himself and a highborn lady against brutal and savage outlaws, which, considering his disabilities, he does very well. Holed up in a small log cabin and under siege from the outlaws, he holds them off for days, but the couple find that their worst foe is thirst and as dehydration threatens to finish them off, their only hope is that the posse searching for them will rescue them before they are either killed by the outlaws, or die of thirst.
I was inspired to write this story because I wanted to create a hero that is different from the normal stereotypical characters usually found in this genre of book and hopefully, it works very well. It is targeted at lovers of western adventure and western romance. But also at readers who like a good story where good doesn't always overcome evil, but put's a whole lot of effort into the attempt.
