P.R. Oliver, a graduate of the University of Montana School of Law, currently works as an attorney in Billings, Montana. An army brat born in California and raised in Virginia, P.R. also attended Washington and Lee University and received degrees from Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia. Before attending law school, P.R. spent twelve years in the computer business in a variety of capacities and lived or worked in various locales--which provided plenty of background when writing his new mystery Citizens Ununited: A Novel. In the mystery, heroine Alexandra Pipe, a former Montana rodeo star, uncovers evidence of a sinister plot by a super PAC hidden in computer files while working for a defense contractor. Once the super PAC gets wind of her investigation, they take out a contract on her.

Timothy Brown extensively drew from life and work experience when writing his novel Maya Hope. For many years, he has worked as an orthopaedic surgeon and medical missionary for Operation Blessing, Mercy Ships, and Hope Force International. His work has taken him throughout Latin America, Asia and the Caribean. Maya Hope (2016), his first novel, narrates the adventures of Dr. Nicklaus Hart in the backwater villages of Guatamala as he discovers something dreadfully wrong with the health of the local populations that he cannot explain or figure out. Timothy backs up his "what-if" scenario with layers of believable science and human nature. The second of the Nicklaus Hart series, The Tree of Life, is scheduled for release later this fall. Timothy now resides in Western Montana. 

David Carpenter sets many of his stories in the wilderness of the north country far. A native of Saskatoon,Saskatchewan, David's latest novel--The Gold--spins the yarn of an Englishman who emigrates to Canada to prospect for gold in the 1930s. David's previous release, The Education of Augie Merasty, placed 4th on Canada's National Posts's annual "99 Best Books of the Year." David has also won the prestigious Kloppenburg Award for Literary Excellence, a BURT Award for Indigenous cullture, and the Prime of Life Achievement Award from the University of Saskatchewan.
