COMING:

A NEW BELLE BANNON SERIES

Meet Belle Bannon:

Belle is a hunting guide for a national outfitter headquartered in Park City, Utah. Her job takes him all over the western states leading trophy hunters on expeditions to find elk, bear, bighorn sheep and wild hogs. She’s highly skilled in the use of firearms and hunting bows. Belle’s an expert skier and sometimes works ski patrol at the Park City Resort when not on a job for the outfitter.

During her travels, Belle sometimes finds herself in the center of harrowing situations where she must use her skills to protect the innocent from those who would do them harm.

Born and raised in Park City, at the age of 12 her father unexpectedly moved the family to Pittsburgh’s hardscrapple South Side Flats. As a teen Belle was part of a street gang and did time in juvie for maiming a kid in a street fight. An uncle brought her back to Park City, took her in and straightened her out.

Now at twenty-nine, the ruthlessness required to survive in the Flats sometimes surfaces when confronted by those who threaten her or others. At juvie he was diagnosed with IED, Intermittent Explosive Disorder–a behavioral disorder characterized by explosive outbursts of anger and violence, often to the point of rage, that are disproportionate to the situation at hand, aka the “Incredible Hulk” disease.

She works hard to keep this affliction under control.

So far she’s only been partially successful.
