Rocky Mountain Writer #107

Kevin Wolf & Brokeheart

This time, a story of going with the flow.

After writing for more than a decade, Kevin Wolf won a major award in a writing contest and the prize included a contract with none other than St. Martin’s Press. That led to the publication, last year, of Kevin's first novel, The Homeplace. 

Last month, Kevin Wolf published his second novel, Brokeheart, and he’s with a whole new publisher.

Both books are set in Colorado and both were inspired by locations in the state that stem from Kevin’s own family history, but one story is set in the present and the new one takes us back to the late 19th century with some paranormal elements, but whether with a big house or not-so-big house Kevin is here to tell us what he’s learned along the way.

Brokeheart features frontier newspaper man Kepler arriving in the Colorado mining town in hopes of making a fresh start. As he begins to report the goings on of Brokeheart and the conditions at the mine, he attracts attention from all quarters, from the mysterious European aristocrat who hires him to oversee the construction of a hunting lodge to the unsavory foreman of the Brokeheart mine.
