Brett Cogburn

Bio Award-winning author, Brett Cogburn, was reared in Texas and the mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma. He had the fortune for many years to make his living from the back of a horse, where cowboys still step on frisky broncs on cold mornings, and drag calves to the branding fire on the end of a rope from their saddlehorn. Growing up around ranches, livestock auctions, oilfield rig sites, and backwoods hunting camps filled his head with stories, and he never forgot a one. In his own words, "My grandfather taught me to ride a bucking horse, my mother gave me a love of reading, and my father taught me how to shoot straight. Cowboys are just as wild as they ever were, and I've been fortunate enough to know more than a few." Whether setting his novels in the Old West or the Twenty-First Century, Brett focuses on characters, the real and the eccentric. His list of novels include Panhandle, The Texans, and Forty Loads, Destiny, Texas, Two-Dollar Pistol, and Widowmaker Jones, with more on the way. He holds a BA in English with a minor in history, and currently makes his home with his family on a little ranch in Oklahoma.
