ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Alan Mehrer came to us with a host of fantastic Westerns he had lying in a drawer. A retired but energetic Electrical Engineer he told us how much he has always loved westerns. That resonated with me as I too still love a good old fashioned Western. He then discovered that he actually enjoyed writing manuscripts more than reading them and hence his tenth manuscript was born.
The Author was raised at a time and place where being a cowboy was a profession, not just a costume. He has experience about what it is like to raise cattle. He also knows the genuine and seedy characters that are associated with that occupation. Although Alan took some literary liberties in his novels thus far published, the overall technical, language and geographical qualities are honest, as he maintains that usually the truth is always stranger than fiction.
Alan wrote his books, not just for his own enjoyment so much, but for what through his experiences he has concluded what publishers really want. For example, the length of his books is just under 50,000 words, although some of his other titles are longer, and has often endured the suffering of unwanted critique that his manuscripts are too lengthy. We believe that a good book with a good solid word count that reader can sink their teeth into will remain a favorite.
Below find a list of Alan’s Titles published in both Kindle and Paperback and are available from Amazon.com

Penelope Highbridge was a privileged Philadelphia socialite. She had the best of everything the Eastern United States could offer. She was on the board of her family owned ship building company, her family was prominent on the social, business, and legal scene, she had a degree in law and she was not in want financially. She had everything and knew everything when she departed from Philadelphia that day in 1869 to go out west and take over an inherited gold mine her Uncle had bequeathed to her.
This is the story of when she returned to Philadelphia. She was a changed woman with western values, but the big question was, would she fit in to the society she once left? What about her new husband? He fit in perfectly to the rugged western life. But Philadelphia is definitely not the same as Montana and that was definitely going to be a problem.
Alan Mehrer was born in South Dakota before WWII. His early life consisted of no running water, a wood burning kitchen range, potbellied stove for winter heat, no refrigerator and outdoor toilet facilities. This was pretty much the norm for that era and rural location but it also consisted of being amid broad spectrum of people who each had their peculiar characteristics, but all were hard working and honest. Alan went on to many professions and life situations. In each of these life experiences he met many various characters and experienced diverse circumstances and has used these to enrich the texture and realism of his writings.
