Jonathan grew up in Texas in the 20th century and moved to Oregon in the 21st century, where he writes about life on the frontiers of the 19th and 25th centuries. He is married to percussionist Cyndi Lewis and has a cat named Sherman. As The Space Wrangler, he amuses Facebook friends with drawings and flash-fiction. What you see in the photo there is a ten-years-younger (my how the time just flies!) Jonathan wearing his fave Oregon hoodie over his fave University of North Texas (Go Mean Green!) Shirt.

Only her spaceship knows for sure. Metal Man of the Prairie: The totally unanticipated sequel to The Prairie Martian. Westfall Ramos is going to save the world—but which one?
