Georgia-based author, Mark Warren has had a lifelong fascination with Wyatt Earp, one of the most celebrated figures of the American West.

Earp was a frontiersman, marshal and gambler. “Adobe Moon” is the first book in Warren’s trilogy about Earp. The third book in the trilogy will be released in late 2019.

A revelation for Warren was coming to understand Wyatt Earp’s character. He explains one discovery, “After having researched him for years, I now know that Wyatt Earp was man who was literally fearless, and that is different from being courageous. The Results look the same, but when you are fearless you don’t need courage.”
