About Doug Welch

Although I'm a retired community college instructor, I lived another life and acquired a wide range of experiences before my teaching and now author gig. I served the U.S. Navy and my country in Vietnam. I repaired robots and automated equipment in the aerospace industry. I was publicity chairman of the California Belly Dance Association for a while, actor in a motion picture, Manufacturing Engineer and Regional Chairman of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and finally Professor of Manufacturing Technology at a local community college. Name it, and I've likely done it.
However, despite threatening to do so for many years, I'd never written a book. At least, until now. It's a lot of work. You really, really have to love it. Fortunately, (or unfortunately) I do love it and plan to continue it as long as I can type, scribble or speak.
Stay tuned for more. (See my website,Facebook and my blog for new books.)

Review by: Kevin Gerard on Dec. 24, 2014 :
I think women will enjoy this first installment of the Cheyenne Jackson series, simply because of the main character. Cheyenne is an intelligent, resourceful, obstinate woman who never backs down from a man, a courtroom battle, or even her enemies, who'd like nothing better than to do away with her.

The stage is set beautifully, the mystery of Wyoming and its diverse array of residents, the murder of a woman from a powerful family, and Cheyenne Jackson, a lawyer who digs deeply into the case until she uncovers more than she can handle, almost.

Welch had me guessing throughout most of the novel. It was this character, that character, then her, then him, truly the mark of a good mystery writer. I was pleasantly shocked when I discovered the real culprit at the end of the story. I did manage to hazard a guess at Cheyenne's love interest, because no mere mortal man would be enough for her.

I enjoyed this story immensely. It drew me in within the first few pages, and I finished it rather quickly. Too quickly, I'm afraid, because now I'm back to New Yorker magazines until Welch publishes the second Cheyenne Jackson novel.

Read this book -- you won't be disappointed!
