Waiting on the River
Up and coming rodeo star, Blue Riggins, was a cowboy champion in the making until a tragic death left him face down in the dirt. Turning his back on the arena and his family in Texas, Blue walked away from fame and fortune to become a nomadic, risk-it-all gambler.
Lindsay Parker has always been a runner. As a young girl she ran to feel free and alive. In high school she ran for track glory. At seventeen, she slowed down long enough to be sweet talked into the tattered backseat of a Trans-Am. A decade later, she's still running from that fateful night back in Oklahoma.
Blue and Lindsay's lives collide on a darkened stretch of Idaho highway. Unaware their pasts are deeply intertwined, he reluctantly takes her on a cross-country trip to face down her past. Their newfound relationship is soon faced with painful truths. Leaving them to wonder, is it too late to turn back?

That's all Angela Ross owned when she fled Texas. Forced to return after fifteen years, she knows in a town like Grand, some sins are never forgotten ... Much less forgiven.

Lucas Cahill writes love songs for a woman he can't have. Lucas has a plan to change that, but heart strings prove tougher to tune than the old guitar his dad left him. Turns out love ... is no easy song to write.
The Feedstore Chronicles
Welcome to Pearl's Feed and Seed
Most coming-of-age stories are fraught with symbolism, hidden metaphors, and a heaping mound of other literary devices.
Not this one. Not mine.
You see, I came of age while working at a dusty Texas feedstore. A place where To Kill a Mockingbird involved a twelve-year-old and a BB gun. Of Mice and Men a problem easily solved with rat poison. And David Copperfield nothing more than a dude that made shit disappear.
The Feedstore Chronicles is a mostly true account of those days and when murderous ex-wives, well-hung bulldogs, and feed room fornication were all part of a normal day at Pearl's.
Hemingway, a collaboration by singer-songwriter Dan Johnson and acclaimed novelist Travis Erwin, is a collection of stories inspired by Johnson's album of the same name.
The gripping narrative follows five unique tales and five wildly diverse characters, whose lives are unpredictably interwoven across time.
The stories serve as a companion to the music and expound on the dialectical impact of decisions made or passed up. What is Good? What is Evil? And can we ever really know the difference until years, even generations have passed?
The book includes a forward by legendary Texas songwriter, Walt Wilkins, as well as a download code for the digital, mp3 version of the album.
