Eight Questions is an occasional series of interviews that I’m including on the site. Being a naturally gifted (read: lazy) interviewer, I will be using the same eight questions in every interview.
This time, the questions are being answered by genre writer, Johnny D. Boggs. Johnny’s craft spans a broad spectrum in the western genre, including novels, short stories, non-fiction tales and articles, as well as reviews, interviews, and photography. His work has appeared in magazines such as True West and Wild West, and he’s also a staff writer at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum’s Persimmon Hill magazine.
Johnny’s fiction has earned him six Spur Awards from the Western Writers of America across numerous categories(A) and he’s also a Western Heritage Wrangler Award winner for “Outstanding Western Novel”(B). If that didn’t make me humble enough, Johnny has been honoured with True West magazine awards for “Readers’ Choice Best Living Historical Novelist” and “Best Living Fiction Writer”.
If my count is correct, he’s written forty-nine novels as well as two books on the portrayal of western outlaws in movies(C). It’ll come as no surprise that he lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
