December 7, 2017
Art Walk Author Book Signing

Join Us From 5:00-8:00 For a Book Signing with Carrie Merrill, Author of The Secret of the Hooked X.
Anna Holloway’s father was murdered in the streets of Boston, and she must leave with her family to join her Uncle John in the New Mexico territory. But when she discovers a hidden map to a buried treasure, the 16-year-old learns that her uncle might not be the benefactor that her family believes he is. Her suspicions are confirmed when a stranger appears in search of the map and takes Anna’s brother, William, hostage. Now she must find him and run with the map to keep him away from her family, or he will kill them all to find the treasure for himself.

December 9, 2017

Book signing with C.M. Wendelboe, author of Hunting the Five Point Killer at Wind City Books from 11:00 to 1:00 pm.
Former Denver homicide detective Arn Anderson never thought he’d be broke enough to take on a cold murder case. Or desperate enough to do it with a TV reporter. Or pathetic enough to go back to his rundown childhood home, after he swore he’d left Cheyenne for good.
But here he is, hunting a serial killer who also appears to have come out of retirement.
On the eve of the tenth anniversary of the murders, the Five Point Killer is back for blood—and Arn could be next.

BOOK SIGNINGS WITH GEORGE TROJAN AND DR. W. LEE WARREN

Come to Wind City Books to meet George Trojan (Too Young For the Times) and Dr. W. Lee Warren (No Place To Hide) for book signings! 

TooYoungForTheTimes.jpg

George Trojan’s life changed forever on September 1, 1939, when German forces bombarded his hometown of Lwow, Poland. With Russia quickly siding with the German invaders, Poland fell in twenty-nine days.

For the next two years, Lwow was under Russian control. George’s brother Stefan joined the Polish resistance and ran messages to older members of the organization. George would join too, but fate would tear him from his home.

After Russia and Germany turned on each other, Lwow came under German control. Caught in a gestapo roundup, sixteen-year-old George and other boys were relocated to Germany to work on the German Air Force’s vital telephone lines. There he would endure two years of grueling labor.

Through it all, George dreamed of escaping and reaching the Allied front lines. It was a dream that was realized as the tides of war turned against the Axis—a dream that would bear unexpected fruit and change the young man’s life in ways he scarcely dared imagine.

A true account of George Trojan’s experiences as a teenager in World War II, Too Young for the Times is a reminder of the horror and fear of growing up surrounded by violence.


NoPlacetoHide.jpg

Dr. W. Lee Warren’s life as a neurosurgeon in a trauma center began to unravel long before he shipped off to serve the Air Force in Iraq in 2004. When he traded a comfortable if demanding practice in San Antonio, Texas, for a ride on a C-130 into the combat zone, he was already reeling from months of personal struggle.

At the 332nd Air Force Theater Hospital at Joint Base Balad, Iraq, Warren realized his experience with trauma was just beginning. In his 120 days in a tent hospital, he was trained in a different specialty—surviving over a hundred mortar attacks and trying desperately to repair the damages of a war that raged around every detail of every day. No place was safe, and the constant barrage wore down every possible defense, physical or psychological.

One day, clad only in a T-shirt, gym shorts, and running shoes, Warren was caught in the open while round after round of mortars shook the earth and shattered the air with their explosions, stripping him of everything he had been trying so desperately to hold on to.

Warren’s story is an example of how a person can go from a place of total loss to one of strength, courage, and victory. Whether you are in the midst of your own crisis of faith, failed relationship, financial struggle, or illness, you will be inspired to remember that how you respond determines whether you survive—spiritually, emotionally, and sometimes physically.

BOOK TALK AND SIGNING WITH NIKI KAPSAMBELIS @ NATRONA COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY

Whentheywereyoung.jpg

 

Sam Dawson believes his life is at a crossroads, and brook trout will show him the way. Fishing the icy mountain streams of southeastern Wyoming is interrupted when fate challenges his life once more.

In this third Sam Dawson Mystery, the photographer and his daughter, Sidney, are on a hunt to find the truth behind what caused the death of an innocent little girl. Sam seeks to unravel the expanding mystery while exploring the boundaries of his complicated relationship with Annie George, his former girlfriend and now his publisher.

From the unique backdrop of the beautiful and turbulent foothills of Wyoming's Laramie range to the expansive prairies of the Nebraska Sandhills, Sam untangles the web that links the past with the present. Strange happenings in the isolated ranch house that Annie rents from a reclusive rancher, as well as competition for Annie's attention from a handsome animal behaviorist, threaten to deter Sam's investigation.

This month we will have K.D. Stewart signing her book. 

Could it be that our delusions of the "perfect life" expose disillusion with our perfect God? K.D. Stewart poses that and other thought-provoking questions in Would I Really Marry My Cat?!--a fresh and compelling look at trusting God when His sovereignty confronts our self-focused ambition, hopes, and hurts. A raw and sometimes ridiculous exploration of faith, Would I Really Marry My Cat?! probes this simple yet profound truth: Life as a Christ-follower is not always a "charmed" life. It is a strategically-designed, intentionally-lived testimony of God's trustworthiness regardless of one's circumstances.

K.D. long dreamed of becoming a wife and a mom. One night her prince finally came. He looked at her with kind, devoted eyes and said, "Marry me." And she gleefully accepted his proposal--even though she knew he was a cat! It was easy for her to look past the whiskers and the tail. What mattered most was, for the first time in a long time, she experienced satisfaction deep within her heart. Then K.D. woke up ... and the morning light exposed something dark deep within her soul--disappointment in God and discontentment with the life He had given her. Out of this season of struggle, K.D. has drawn a series of stories, reflections, and prayers that will encourage, challenge, and inspire you to find joy-filled confidence in the God who created you and the life He has given you, even when it looks nothing like the life of your dreams.
