J.A. Johnstone learned to write from the master himself, Uncle William W. Johnstone, who began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western History library as well as the more modern wars and con?icts. J.A. worked hard--and learned. "Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. 'Keep the historical facts accurate,' he would say 'Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, be the best Johnstone you can be." J.A. Johnstone has co-written numerous bestselling series with William W. Johnstone including The First Mountain Man, The Brothers O'Brien, and Preacher, The First Mountain Man.
