My Books


My first novel, Banjo Flats, MONA KNIGHT - BANJO FLATS POSTER cropped Rconcerns a young woman orphaned at the age of thirteen. The year is 1873. Abandoned on the streets of Cheyenne, Wyoming, she masquerades as a boy to survive. Her mother taught her to read and write. Her father taught her how to handle guns. She’s got streets smarts and is a crack shot which lands her in a heap of trouble after killing a notorious gunfighter the day she arrives in Banjo Flats, the most lawless town in the Dakota Territory.  It’s a time when frontier justice is wielded with a gun. Every shootist in the Territory is headed for Banjo Flats thinking they can earn some easy money by killing the girl gunslinger. They’re wrong.
