Kent Conwell

Biography

Kent Conwell grew up in the wide-open Texas Panhandle town of Wheeler. His love for the West came naturally, for his grandfather had run away from his Tennessee home when he was 14, bullwhacking his way to the Panhandle where he met his future wife, who had traveled from Illinois to Texas.

After moving to Fort Worth, Kent was more at home at the stockyards than school. Somehow, he managed to earn a B.S. and began teaching. Later, he moved to Port Neches where he acquired a M.Ed. and Ph.D. His love for writing about the West, a period in history unique to America, has never waned. A successful educator, he has also won awards for his short stories, screenplays, mysteries, and Westerns.
