I grew up in a little town in northeastern Washington state, a place called
Northport. My dad was, really and truly, the town marshal. I was raised on
stories, told mostly by my adopted grandmother, Florence Wiley, about 'old
times', when she lived on a farm outside of Coffeyville, Kansas. In my
childhood, she was usually working at the wood-burning cook stove while she
told her stories, and that stove has been in every western I've ever written,
always in the same part of the kitchen. Later, when the uncles went together
and bought her an electric model, she hated it, claiming it burned everything,
and banished it. The black iron and chrome Kitchen Queen was soon back in
