L. L. Rigsbee has been writing westerns since 1996. Born in Wichita, Kansas, Rigsbee later spent six years in the Arizona desert. An avid reader of Louis L’Amour, not surprisingly, some of his style spills into Rigsbee’s westerns. Rigsbee writes flash fiction, short stories, novellas and novels with the same attention to detail.
