"Having grown up a dedicated fan of Westerns, writing Red River Reunion was a natural progression for me.. The story flowed like one of the hundreds of western movies I’d watched over the years. The landscapes, characters, and dialogue came so inherently, that my writing swept me away like I hope it will my readers." - John Layne
