Paul Colt Biography
Paul Colt’s first book Grasshoppers in Summer was a Western Writers of America Spur Award Finalist in 2009. His next book Boots and Saddles: A Call to Glory received the Marilyn Brown Novel Award from Utah Valley University. Paul weaves fast paced stories around historical characters and events often with a little known twist. His stories fuse Jeff Shaara’s historical dramatizations with Robert B. Parker’s character driven action.
Paul's life long love of the west began, growing up as comfortable on the back of a horse as most kids are on a bicycle. He gets his boots dirty researching a story, whenever possible on horseback.
Paul admits to using a pen name. He says, “You would too if your name was a nine letter pronunciation challenge sprinkled with s, c and z. What’s more, I could register the website.” He lives in Lake Geneva Wisconsin with Trish, his wife of forty three years.
