Author has written 13 stories for Tin Man, Human Target, and Body of Proof.

Greetings to all parties interested enough to check out my profile.

I'm a semi-retired librarian. Tombstone, Arizona - the Town Too Tough to Die - is the home of my heart. Here, in 1881 occured the infamous Gunfight at OK Corral, when Wyatt Earp, his brothers and Doc Holiday broke the back of the outlaw Clanton gang. The history and mistique of this town are the inspiration for many of the stories I write.

As my fellow writers know, the only remuneration for the stories we post here are REVIEWS. My story stats tell me I have numerous readers, but only a handful take time to review. I welcome all comments. Even negative critiques can be helpful. A simple "Loved it" or "Hated it" is better than nothing at all. (Although more in-deprth comments are certainly appreciated.)

I will reply to all reviews. Don't let that scare you - I won't get ugly unless YOU get ugly.

Cheers,

Scarlet Garter
