William W. Johnstone is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over three hundred novels of Western adventure, military action, and chilling suspense, and with over 35 million books in print, he is the best-selling Western writer in the world. Born in southern Missouri, he was raised with strong moral and family values by his minister father, and tutored by his schoolteacher mother.

J.A. Johnstone learned to write from the master himself, Uncle William W. Johnstone, who began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western History library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard--and learned. "Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. 'Keep the historical facts accurate,' he would say. 'Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best Johnstone you can be.'" J.A. Johnstone has co-written numerous bestselling series with William W. Johnstone including The First Mountain Man, The Brothers O'Brien, Preacher, and The Last Mountain Man.
