About J.W. Stephens
J.W. Stephens is a seventh generation, native Texan and has spent many years traveling and living in a variety of places around the state and the world. The most memorable have been the Big Bend Area of west Texas and New Orleans. The Stephens family breeds and shows National Champion Spanish Norman horses and shares their home with 6 or 7 large dogs at any given time. In 2011 the author lost 40% of the vision in one eye and realized if a novel was ever going to be produced, it was now or never!
"Chess With Carrizo" is J.W.'s first novel and the first in a planned series about Tru & Chris Marcus and their adventures with Jorge Carrizo. The cover artwork is all original work by the Texas artist, Jeran Walker. The author is currently writing the sequel to Chess With Carrizo - Carrizo's Heir. Expected release date is early summer of 2012.
