Locomotive Reaper strikes again!
All aboard found dead!
When Annabelle Fortune, the fastest gunslinger in the wild west, inadvertently stops a stranger from attacking a train — and he wears a suit that enables him to fly! — the government believes she’s the only one to have witnessed the Locomotive Reaper and survived to tell the tale.
Promising to find out what he can about her missing father, the Director of the Secret Service persuades Annie to swear in. Too soon, her detested nickname re-stakes its claim.
Partnered with Beau Slokam, whose penchant for gambling leads them straight to the Doom Gang, Misfortune Annie guides the smooth-talking Southerner in a chase through the Rockies, with her Cheyenne friend, Wontoa, rounding out their unlikely trio.
When Annie again meets the Locomotive Reaper, his gadgetry proves far more advanced — and deadly — than even top scientists could have imagined.
Wow. I’m speechless. I absolutely LOVED Misfortune Annie and the Locomotive Reaper!
At a time when women weren’t typically adventurers, especially at Annie’s age, it’s great fun to see a story about a girl who loves an adventure, is capable, and well-respected. I think Annie is a great model for young girls, especially those who don’t like the feminine trappings, and she gives us a great story to while away an afternoon.
I’ll definitely be looking for more Misfortune Annie books to read & share!

“Gusto” Dave Jackson
A country boy, Dave was raised in Oklahoma and taught 6th grade English for two years. He enjoys sharing the tale about when he climbed high into a towering black jack tree and grabbed a dead branch. Snap! He hurtled toward his death, but he held tight to the branch and it slowed his fall, saving his life. Dave often says that his guardian angel is overworked, considering that early incident and his wild college days and world travels. Settled now in Denver, Dave is passionate about living life to the fullest with those he loves, especially his young son.
In 2013, Dave enjoyed the release of Tattoo Rampage, by Curiosity Quills Press. In Tattoo Rampage, we find a strong female heroine in Evangelina Marquez-James, who gets her first tattoo as a symbol of courage to carry on after her police officer husband dies in the line of duty.
