Jeremy Perry (b. Jan. 21, 1977) is an American writer from southern Indiana. In 2011, he began the BROTHERS OF THE MOUNTAIN series. In 2013, he released the short story collection UNDER THE WILLOW TREE and Other Stories. His books MOONSHINER'S JUSTICE and BROTHERS OF THE MOUNTAIN: Heart of the Frontier were released in 2016. By day, Jeremy dons a pair of leather work boots and disguises himself as a home maintenance repairman.
Heart of the Frontier is a book of seven adventures that follows the lives of mountain men and brothers Henry and Lucas McCarty. Each story is not only filled with extreme action and adventure, but also represents the special breed of men who were willing to risk their lives in the adverse and hostile conditions of America's western frontier in the 1820s and 1830s.
Throughout this collection is a mix of tales that possess a sharp psychological edge. Throw in dark humor, tragedy, contemporary realism, coming of age, the paranormal, and a bit of spice, and you have a collection that will appeal to the general short story enthusiast.
