Al Marsigliaabout this book: To date, I have written two mystery/crime novels and two children books plus several screenplays. This book, Trupenny, is my first attempt at a western. I am an avid reader of western novels and have loved western movies since I was a child.
Trupenny is a story of the comeback of an aging western sheriff, who has been shuffled to the side by the town council of Casper Wyoming. Even more important, it is also the story of the defense of a biracial romance and the unmasking of the local KKK. I tried to keep the characters in the story as close to real life as my research would let me. That research included going back to the history of Casper Wyoming where much of the story takes place during the 1890s. I researched many early American names and stopped when I hit upon Trupenny, it just struck a chord! It took about a year to write and rewrite this novel.
The writing of this novel was a revelation to me of my own thoughts and feelings about race relations and the prejudices that existed at that time and how it compares to today.
The cover depicts my vision of Sheriff Trupenny. The inset portrays the interracial sub-story.
I would like readers to come away from this story, of course, entertained, but also recognizing that there is very little new under the sun!
