Adult Fiction Writers Talk Podcast

Clean Cut

About the Book: Life in Pindall, Wyoming, population 658, is tough. Tourists rush through town to the gates of Yellowstone National Park, only an hour up the road, and the town’s sole industry, a sawmill, has been taken over by a multinational corporation. 

For Shari Brock, who loses her on-again-off-again husband, Brad Brock, in a tragic accident, it’s tough to listen to the stories that the townspeople tell about him. It’s even harder when his illegitimate daughter, Erica, arrives in town. Meanwhile, Shari’s son, Jason, embarks on a cockeyed crime spree that makes him the laughingstock of the town. But that isn’t all: Erica fully expects to be welcomed into the family, a wolf appears out of nowhere, and the yearly town celebration becomes a battlefield.

Add a cast of colorful characters for a true romance of the western heart.
