Bryan Davidson


I was born and raised in Oklahoma, and still reside there in a small town east of Oklahoma City. In my early years I discovered John Wayne and Clint Eastwood movies and this led to a lifelong interest in the old West and the firearms that allowed its settlement. Being right smack dab in the middle of outlaw and cattle country, there are many museums around that only fueled the fire. With the passage of years, my interest has not diminished and after taking a few online writing classes, I discovered that I had devolved into a writer. Add all of that together, toss in a little imagination, and you end up with something like Long Way to Dodge, my first novel.

I love to travel and see new places and things. I adore warm, tropical, beachy places, or just about anywhere else that happens to feature a plentitude of bikinis. The Caribbean would be a favorite. Some of my interests include hunting, fishing, high-performance machinery in the form of motorcycles, cars, airplanes or nearly any other form of motorized transportation, and watching outdoor related programs on TV. I can often be found sitting in front of my computer, daydreaming about the red rock canyons and the high mountain peaks of the Rockies.

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on another Western novel. This one will be about a notorious hired killer, a murderer of the first degree who has transformed his life and is now on the straight and narrow. When a gang of outlaws invades his claim, steals his gold and kidnaps his grandson, he takes up his trusty rifle and reverts to his old ways as he sets out on their trail.
Who are your favorite authors?
Louis L'Amour, hands down. I've read just about everything he's ever written, some of it more than once. I also like Hampton Sides and Mark Bowden.
