Douglas S. Santo      Author

Douglas S. Santo is an independent author and publisher specializing in historic novels of the old west. Each story is inspired from the author's real-life experiences and travels. Characters in the novels are complex and thoroughly explored. Personalities pop from the pages and interact in an environment carefully researched, richly detailed, and historically accurate. The author interprets archive photographs, topographic maps, and oceanographic charts from the period and uses this information to construct a physical description of the world in which the characters live. Archive newspapers and history books covering all aspects of society such as politics, war, business, food, clothing, and lifestyles inform dialogue and interaction among the characters. The action is fast-paced, the stories captivating, the characters seem real.
