THE NOVELS OF GUNFIGHTER GOTHIC
THE TRAIN WHERE JILL DIES
The First Gunfighter Gothic Novel
It’s 1866. Jill Masters, a merchant’s daughter, and Hanna Pak, her servant, have left Boston for the American West. They’re on the trail of Dotson Winters, Jill’s kidnapped fiancé, a man she doesn’t love but has agreed to marry to save her father’s business.
Their hunt leads them to a train bound for Denver … a train one of them won’t leave alive. A mysterious caboose holds the key to a complex series of events involving Queen Victoria, werewolves, vampires, a Western baron with a face no one has seen, a mysterious British spy, and a weapon powerful enough to bring a dead woman from Boston back to life.
The greater challenge for Hanna and Jill is reconciling their new arrangement. In finding themselves, will they lose each other?
The Second Gunfighter Gothic Novel
Jill Masters, a merchant’s daughter, and Hanna Pak, her ex-servant, have left Boston for the American West. They’re on the hunt for Dotson Winters, Jill’s former fiancé and a brilliant scientist, who’s faked his own kidnapping and set a dangerous series of monsters loose in Colorado.
The trail to Dotson runs through the Western machinations of President Ulysses Grant and his right hand paranormal man, Agent Plummer. What connection exists between the President and Dotson? And what role does the Gray, an army of Lost Cause Confederates, play in Dotson’s quest for money and power?
These questions plague Hanna and Jill as they confront waltzing zombies in a zeppelin high above the Plains, Christian vampires at the foot of the Rockies, and skeletal dinosaurs in the mountains.
ABSINTHE & STEAM
The Third Gunfighter Gothic Novel
The hunt for Dotson Winters reaches its epic conclusion inside the haunted walls of Kraken Moor!
Hanna & Jill are invited to the estate’s grand re-opening, where Dotson reveals he has made a series of deals with the house’s demons that will cost the invited guests their sanity and perhaps their souls. But while Hanna fights a giant, demonic snakes and spiders, Jill faces the far greater horror when her father’s deepest, darkest secret is revealed to her. What has Branford Masters done that threatens not only the fabric of the Masters’ family, but of the entire United States?
THE MAN IN THE RED COAT
The Fourth Gunfighter Gothic Novel
The Man in the Red Coat is out of Hell and determined to play a bigger role in the lives of Hanna & Jill. As the women of Gunfighter Gothic spend their Christmas holidays in France, the Man in the Red Coat unleashes a plan that will see him walking back through Jill’s timeline, replacing the life she lived with one he helps to create.
As Hanna and Jill deal with memories that feel their own yet unfamiliar, can they still overcome an appearance from the Krampus, the transformative waters of the man who calls himself Sinterklaas, and a deadly fighting tournament with the characters from the “Twelve Days of Christmas” before the Man in the Red Coat makes his move?
The Fifth Gunfighter Gothic Novel
It’s the summer of 1867, and after almost a year overseas, Hanna Pak and Jill Masters enter San Francisco during a time of turmoil: the United States Army is in charge, prisoners are vanishing from the city’s jails, and a supernatural chill has enveloped the city.
As the two Bostonians investigate the mystery of the vanishing prisoners, however, a new player takes the field: Andi, a strange Indian woman in Viking armor, appears out of thin air to kill the city’s men and shepherd them to Niflheim, where they will serve in the army of her mother, Helreginn, a Nordic priestess.
Caught between the machinations of the Nordic priestess and her warrior daughter on one side, and the Army and the city’s citizens on the other, Hanna and Jill fight to save both San Francisco and the soul of the American Valkyrie!
The Sixth Gunfighter Gothic Novel
“The Bandolier filled the deputy’s gut with buckshot, the sheriff’s heart with four .32 caliber rimfire bullets, and then locked himself inside a cell to wait for a higher power.”
It’s the fall of 1867 and Hanna Pak and Jill Masters are in Nevada, hunting dead men who won’t stay dead.
The women of Gunfighter Gothic ride up on an army fort full of sleeping soldiers, but before they can unravel what’s transpired, they get pulled into local politics. Crick, Nevada is a town that’s little more than a fly on the scorched backside that is the American West, yet full of secrets. Caught between the town’s main benefactor, preacher, accountant, doctor, and cleaning woman, Hanna and Jill find themselves amidst a group of people who aren’t what they claim, but don’t know what they really are.
At the center of this investigation is the mysterious Bandolier, a man exceptionally good at killing lawmen who have a nasty habit of coming back to life.
But is the Bandolier responsible for the undead … or just a pawn in the game of a much higher power?
