Editorial Reviews


"Finally, a voice as real and honest as thunder rumbles from the canyons and tinderbox towns of the wild Old West. The voice belongs to Kirby Jonas. Every shining detail of "The Dansing Star" carries the stamp of authenticity and drums like the hoofbeat of a sure-footed horse at full gallop." -- Mike Blakely, author of Shortgrass Song and Too Long at the Dance

"Kirby Jonas is one of the best of the young writers who breathe a new freshness into the traditional Western." -- Don Coldsmith, author of Tallgrass and the "Spanish Bit Saga"

Kirby Jonas tells a gritty story of search, action, and revenge in Old Arizona when it was still a hunting ground for hostile Apaches and white outlaws, when hatreds ran deep, and vengeance was not the Lord's. --Elmer Kelton, six-time winner of the Spur Award for Best Western Novel

About the Author

Kirby Frank Jonas was born in 1965 in Bozeman, Montana. He lived in a place called Bear Canyon, where sagebrush gave way to spruce and fir, and the wild country was forever ingrained in him. It was there he gained his love of the Old West, listening to his daddy tell stories and sing western ballads, and watching television Westerns such as Gunsmoke, The Virginian, and the Big Valley.

Jonas next lived on a remote farm in the middle of Civil War battlefield country near Broad Run, Virginia. That was followed by a move to Shelley,d IDaho, where he completed all of his school years, wrote his first book in the sixth grade and his second as a senior in high school. He has since written five published novels and two which are forthcoming, one which was co-authored by his older brother, Jamie.

Besides writing novels, Jonas also paints wildlife and the West. He has done all of his cover art and hundreds of other pieces. He is a songwriter and guitar player and singer of old Western ballads and trail songs. Jonas enjoys the joking title given to him by his friends,"The Renaissance Cowboy."

After living in Arizona to research his first two published books, and traveling through nine countries in Europe, to get his glimpse of the world, Jonas settled permanently in Pocatello, Idaho. He has made a living fighting forest fires for the Bureau of Land Management in five western states, worked for the Idaho Fish and Game Department, been a security guard and a guard for Wells Fargo in Phoenix, Arizona. He was employed as an officer for the Pocatello city police and currently works as a city firefighter. He and his wife, Debbie, have four children, Cheyenne Kaycee, Jacob Talon, Clay Logan, and Matthew Morgan.
