The Greatest Western Writers Of The 21st Century

Bestselling Western novelists William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone have created a new hero of the Texas frontier: Jess Casey, cowboy, lawman, gunfighter.

“Stay The Hell Out Of Fort Worth.”

Those were the last words uttered by a dying man who was the boomtown’s most recent sheriff. Rail-thin and half starved, desperate cowpuncher Jess Casey ignores the travel advice. Instead, Jess not only enters Fort Worth, he becomes the new sheriff, inheriting the body-riddled little slice of heaven called Hell’s Half Acre, the wide-open, deadliest piece of real estate on the American frontier.

Hell’s Half Acre is home to Kurt Koenig and his gang-run empire of booze, prostitution, and wholesale slaughter.

About J.A. Johnstone:

Being the all around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.

Bill, as he preferred to be called, began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western History library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.

“Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling and creating believable characters. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,’ he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.’”
