The Most Intrepid Western Author's Posse is comprised of five published, award-winning western authors who love to tell exciting tales of the Old West –some true, some with a twist. They include:

Sherry Monahan author of Mrs. Earp: The Wives and Lovers of the Earp Brothers,The Cowboy Cookbook, and Frontier Fare;

Chris Enss, author of Frontier Teachers: Stories of Heroic Women of the Old West,Hearts West: Mail Order Brides of the Old West,and Object Matrimony: The Risky Business of Mail-Order Matchmaking on the Western Frontier. 

Stories told by the Posse promise to transport readers back to the days of the wild frontier when times were rowdy and justice was swift. The Posse will be discussing their books and the taming of the Wild West. Their books will be for sale through the Homestead Bookstores and the authors will be available to sign them. For more Posse information, visit www.chrisenss.com.
