Cursed to roam the untamed west as a vampire, Ezekiel Carson, once a devoted man of God, is haunted by his past. Feeding on bandits and spending his nights satisfying his endless lusts, he has found his life is empty.
William Hamilton is a school teacher from New York who is in need of a guide and seeks out The Blood Rider. Their meeting is less than promising, but Ezekiel agrees to help after learning William is searching for his brother, a preacher who has disappeared from a mining town in New Mexico.
Riding only at night, and drinking from blood-filled canteens, the journey begins. When William discovers the man in black’s secret, he is weary, but, desperate to find his brother, they travel on. After arriving, the two discover the prosperous mining town holds a dark secret. The burned down church on the outskirts of town, missing miners and whispers of demons are just the beginning. The moon is high, the sky is clear and the scent of death lingers in the air.
“I don’t run out of bullets… I run out of bodies…” Ezekiel Carson A.K.A The Blood Rider

Book Coming Winter 2015
When an innocent ranch hand, Jack Clayton, is accused of killing the Judge’s daughter, he flees after being shot and tries to hold up in a run down church in the desert.
Judge Murphy, with the aid of a corrupt sheriff, places a excessive bounty on his head for 20 thousand dollars and a full pardon to any wanted man or his gang if they can bring him in alive. The sheriff rides north to Santa Fe to get more deputies in hopes they can find Jack first.
Trouble arrives early when several bounty hunters, gunslingers and wanted men and women discover Jack’s location. They all surround the old church. With so many quick tempers and desperados waiting to claim the bounty, things begin to get ugly.
They soon learn they have only two days until the sheriff and his new found law dogs arrive and take the man in for themselves. To make it fair to everyone who claims to have a right to the wanted man, a contest of skill is suggested. One by one, the men and women must fight in a tournament style arena using guns, knives, and hand to hand combat.
If they die or submit they are eliminated from the competition and the winner advances to another fight and one step closer to the bounty. The last man standing will get to claim Jack and deliver him to the judge. Unknown to the fighters, one of them is an ex-confederate soldier turned preacher. He is Jack’s half brother, and is fighting to keep his younger brother from the noose and may have a bullet for the sheriff, who sold him and others out to the Yankees to die during the civil war.
Old wounds, new sins and redemption are all awakened on this bloody field of battle, but only one man can claim the bounty and coming in second place may get you a pine box.
