About Major Mitchell
SPUR award finalist Major Mitchell loves writing, singing and playing the guitar, but the real joys of his life are his family and his faith. He says spending time with his grandchildren is the most fun anyone could ever hope to have. He has always been active in his church and at one time was a pastor in Southern California.
Although Major had spent many an hour and countless reams of paper as a child creating his own comic books (mostly westerns), it wasn't until he entered college that he began to think of writing as a serious pastime. He remembers being held after class on his second day in English 1-B, and listening with fear as his professor cautioned several others that they were not prepared for her class and should transfer out. She then proceeded to encourage Major and one other student to enroll in a creative writing class, as they had a true talent with words. Since that day, he has enrolled in several classes and writing organizations that have helped develop in him the talent you will find in his published novels and his children's picture books. We are confident that, after reading any of his historical Western novels, contemporary Christian romances or children's books, you will also become a member of his ever-growing fan base.
"I like using opposites, things most people would not consider putting together. It is easy to think of Cinderella as being the nice, mistreated, poor girl with a heart of gold being rescued by Prince Charming. But what if Cinderella has some spice, and is willing to get into Prince Charming's face. What if she is anything but what Prince Charming expected, and he turns out to be the opposite of what she expected. Then, add some outside conflict and see what happens. This always makes for a good story, especially when based around historical events."... Major Mitchell

Cattle Rustlers, Native American migration, a stage hold-up, a deadly blizzard, guns, horses, cowboys, ranching... what more could you ask for? Oh yeah, there's also romance.

Reminiscent of Louis L’Amour’s style.
