About the Author

William W. Johnstone is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of over 220 books, including the popular Ashes, Mountain Man, and Last Gunfighter series. Visit his website at or by email at 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.'" The Loner marked the debut of Tennessee-based J.A. Johnstone as a solo author.
