About the Author
P. K. Vandcast was born in El Paso, Texas, the son of a rodeo clown. His mother passed away when P. K. was four and he grew up following the rodeo circuit wherever his father could get work. Raised around ropers, bull riders, and broncobusters, P. K. learned to love the tales of the Old West-- tales tall, small, true, and blue. He enlisted in the U.S. Army and received training as a U.S. Army Ranger. After two tours with Special Forces, P.K. was recruited as a security consultant with a firm that specialized in large businesses in the Pacific Rim. After thirty years with the company, he has returned to the United States to enjoy a quiet life of travel and writing, returning to the passion of his boyhood, the Old West. Not willing to be tied down to any one place, P.K. calls home wherever he hangs his hat, but will occasionally spend longer periods of time in Los Angeles, CA; Bisbee, AZ; Rifle, CO; El Paso, TX; Tupelo, MS; and Atlanta, GA.
