The Western theme is one of the most enduring themes in American art. Paintings, novels, radio and television programs, movies, and even video games, as evidenced by Rockstar’s 2010 award-winning game Red Dead Redemption, have consistently presented audiences with new, creative representations of the American West of the 19th century. Continuing the great tradition of Western novels, D.E. Miller takes readers to the settling dust after the end of the Civil War in her new book “The Skylars: A New Beginning” (published by AuthorHouse).

Miller puts a unique twist on her Western, infusing it with elements of mystery elements. Three siblings – Tyree, Riley and Macee – travel to Keeline, Wyoming to help their Uncle Alex who seems to have ran into a bit of trouble on his ranch. An excerpt from “The Skylars”:

“Riley looked at Hildago and with a small nod to Riley, he picked up the coffee pot, poured coffee in two cups, and as he was handing them their cups of coffee, Riley eased his gun from his holster, at the same time Hildago threw the hot coffee in the outlaws faces. When they grabbed their faces, Riley rushed in, took their guns from their holster, and just as this was all happening, Dave and Macee rode into camp.

‘What has happened here?’ Macee asked.”

The siblings eventually put their uncle’s worries at ease and help him smooth out his problems on the ranch. They encounter many more adventures, all while learning the importance of family and growing closer to each other – offering readers the message of the value of what Miller calls “good, clean family living.”
