Selected Works

Jesse Smoke has it all. One problem though. She's a woman, who plays, better than any man, a man's sport.
"An entertaining old-school western [in] the reluctant-hero tradition of Charles Portis (True Grit)." The New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice'
"Sometimes harrowing, sometimes funny, often luminously beautiful and always profoundly imaginative and moving..."
A beautiful and aching novel, alarming in its wisdom and treatment of one of the great terrors, loneliness, and one of the great mercies, forgiveness.
--Rick Bass
An experience so intimate... that it almost blinds you with love.
--O- The Oprah Magazine
A brilliant exploration of human darkness, delusion, and desire for redemption.
--Beth Henley, author of Crimes of the Heart
