A homesteading family, consisting of a Mother, Father and their son Colt, have their quiet life interrupted with the arrival of a wounded bounty hunter, named Jeb. The mother removed two bullets and nurses him back to health. While recovering, he teaches the son the art of the fast draw with a six shooter. When the bounty hunter was fully recovered, he accompanied the son into town for supplies. On their return they find the cabin burnt, Mother dead and Father dying. Before the father takes his last breath, he describes the killers and gives the names he overheard. Colt, and the Bounty Hunter Jeb, team up, to go... On The Vengeance Trail.

I grew up on farms and a horse ranch, I drove taxi as a summer job. I spent my life working as a Tool and Die maker. I’ve taken a Locksmith course just because of my fascination with locks. I joined the Masonic Lodge as did my grandfather, father and son. I’m married to my trail riding partner for over 46 years. One daughter, one son and six grandchildren. I’ve read westerns for fifty some years and decided in retirement to write one of my own. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.


My second book is in the works.

On The Vengeance Trail

Vengeance Trail was a good read. I enjoyed the story, there were lots of interesting characters and the story keeps moving.

by Janet

Western novels are a new genre for me, but I would expect that there would be lots of action, trail rides, stagecoaches, saloons, gun fits, encounters with Indigenous people and of course, ro

Set in the American west in the late 1800s this novel is fast-paced from the first chapter. When Colt and Jeb arrive back at the homestead after picking up supplies they return to the grizzly sight of Colt's Ma dead from a gunshot wound. Colt's father is also shot but is able to give the names and a description of the outlaws before he too dies from his wounds. This sets in motion the story of On The Vengeance Trail. At 19 years of age Colt is strong and a quick learner but doesn't have the experience and knowledge necessary to pursue the outlaws on his own. His new partner, Jeb, has the experience and skills needed for survival and he's willing to pass on what he knows as he accompanies Colt on his mission. The partnership is formed, and as the story unfolds we ride right beside them, cheering them along as they correct one injustice after another. The West, at this time, is not a safe place for honest homesteaders and trail blazers and it was an acceptable practice for people to take the law into their own hands when necessary. This story is not a slow meander along the western trail but a fast-paced adventure that flows smoothly from one encounter to another. Colt and Jeb are looking for the outlaws but they also want to explore. They are heading west to Santa Fe, The Alamo and the ocean. Along the way they befriend homesteaders who have been taken over by land-grabbers, ranchers who have had their cattle stolen by rustlers, Gypsies who haven't been accepted because of their different way of life and a Comanche tribe which plays an important role in their lives. With each encounter they set out to correct the wrongs that these honest people have endured. Colt sums it up when he says, "We want to make the West a better place for everyone." A classic good versus evil tale. I look forward to continuing the saga of Colt and Jeb as the series continues in Richard Coffey's next novel.
