About Robert Broomall
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be a writer. I was one of those kids who always had his nose stuck in a book. My head was full of exotic characters and places and events, and my dream was to be able to create stories like the ones I read. Now that I actually am a writer, I sometimes can't believe it's happened. It seems like it was someone else who wrote those books. Either way, it's a dream come true.
Influences? C.S. Forester (the one and only), Robert Louis Stevenson, Agatha Christie, and others too numerous to mention. Contemporary influences -- the late George MacDonald Fraser and Bernard Cornwell.

When a Norman earl is killed while hunting, the dead man's son invokes the dreaded murdrum law. This law presumes that the killer is English, and it requires the judicial district in which the crime took place to produce the guilty man or be hit with a massive fine.
The job of finding the killer falls to Miles Edwulfson, an English ploughman of noble descent. Miles served as a soldier with the earl in Wales, twenty years earlier, an experience that changed his life. Miles has two problems. First, he doesn't believe the killer was English, but a member of the earl's hunting party. Second, the arrow used in the crime belongs to Miles's son, Aelred.
Facing opposition from the Norman nobility, his fellow Englishmen, and even his own family, Miles must save Aelred's life and bring the real killer to justice.

The average life expectancy for a marshal in Topaz, Arizona, is three weeks. Down-on-his-luck Clay Chandler takes the marshal’s job out of desperation. Clay has barely settled into the job when Vance Hopkins drunkenly guns down a black man. Clay arrests Vance for murder, but Wes Hopkins and his gang run Topaz, and they demand that Vance be released -- or else. Clay has given his word to uphold the law, though, and he’ll do that even if it means losing his life. No one else in Topaz thinks a dead black man is worth taking on the Hopkins gang -- no one but a former slave named Essex Johnson, who was the murdered man’s friend. Ex-Confederate Clay and Essex can’t stand each other, but Clay reluctantly swears Essex in as his deputy. The two of them are aided by a prostitute named Julie, who had her face carved up by the Hopkins gang. Wes Hopkins gives Clay a deadline to release Vance, or the gang is going to come and take him. The question is, will the Hopkins gang kill Clay and Essex, or will they kill each other first?
