Marc C. Crump enjoyed his formative years in the Mojave Desert where he learned to shoot, hunt and ride horses. He fondly remembers his evenings with his parents as they gathered around the radio to listen to Gunsmoke and The Lone Ranger. When they got their first TV (black & white), his favorite genre became more alive with Roy Rodgers, Gene Autrey, Hopalong Cassidy and an endless supply of other western heroes over the coming years. These shows helped fill Mr. Crump with an indelible and lasting lust for knowledge of the legends of the west.
With his interest in firearms, he apprenticed as a gunsmith in Sacramento. He eventually opened his own gun shop in Cloverdale, Oregon.
Crump has combined his knowledge of guns, horses, and his life long craving for the history and grandeur of the Old West, to create his new and exciting career as a writer of western novels. Among his favorite authors are: Zane Grey, Louis L’Amour, Luke Short, Max Brand and Larry McMurtry, to name a few.
