M.L. Bushman

Biography

A single mom, Ms. Bushman divides her time between her child, her horse, six cats and writing/editing for Jigsaw Press, not necessarily in that order. She is a novelist, a former newspaper reporter, a blogger, and a rabid patriot, again, not necessarily in that order.

At present, Ms. Bushman is working on the Two Bit Western series Eli Stone. She and her small herd make their home in the rural area just outside of the tiny historical town of Sun River, Montana.

"Heard the shots and was going after you," Sam said. Elliot added, "Dave decked him to keep him here." "Decked him good, too," Jesse muttered. Hard to tell in this light, but I think he almost smiled. Sarah nodded grimly when I looked her way. "You told us to wait for you," Dave said, on the defensive, as if he expected flack. Tom said, "Well, maybe he'll listen next time."

Thought this Jane might be verging on a heart attack then, the way her pudgy face turned red. I said, "Anybody gets away, dies of infection later." "Nobody's gotten away yet, Eli," Sarah said, and earned Jane's wide-eyed stare. I had to grin. "No, they haven't, Sarah."

Kyle glimpsed Brandon again, his white hat and shirt stark in contrast to the blackest night. He'd put a gun in his lap in her defense, chancing possible injury or death for someone he didn't even know. Maybe he was a ladies man, a first-class user, but there had to be good in him. Not that she was any great judge of character. After all, look at the bastard she'd allowed to share her bed.

"So, why'd that old man send you to me?" I asked. Dave's reluctance to answer was written all over his hangdog face. "What?" I demanded. "What'd he say?" "You sure you wanna know?" I slapped leather. The boy gasped and spit, "Never see this coming. Not in a million years. And something about irritation and," he winced and grimaced, "arbitrary bastard."

"Sam, Elliot," Tom said, grinning, "you guys come along, too." Is this a Western or what? The boys looked puzzled, Tom laughed and said, "That talking to yourself's gotten worse, hasn't it?" Best I could do was a stern scowl. "You spend years with just a horse."

Now I frowned, squinting one eye. "Ain't gonna yell draw, are you?" "You tell 'em, Clint," somebody shouted. Even I had to grin at that. Sporadic laughter from the crowd faded to dead silence, the young man wrinkling his nose into a baby's scowl, obviously too young for the joke. "Calling you out," he said, arrogantly raising his pointy chin. "Heard you’re the man from up north."

"What're you going to do?" Sarah said, her voice wavering. "Bury them," I said, stirring the smoldering ashes of the wagon with a dead branch. Didn't mean the dead either. Maybe later we come back and bury what's left of these folk, if we lived.

"So, you're wanting a gun hand, I take it." She frowned and poured herself a fourth shot. "To do what?" I asked. "Keep 'em off or kill 'em all?" "You'd have to kill them, I think," she said, slurring words ever so slightly.
