Rostad and Thompson
Author Dianna Rostad, who was raised in the Pacific Northwest but whose extended family hail from the ranches of Montana and farms of Arkansas, revels in the discovery and research of people and places where her novels take place. You Belong Here Now, set in Montana, illuminates the 1920s in vivid detail, with colorful anecdotes, legends, and songs of the orphan trains. Sidney Thompson holds an MFA in creative writing from the University of Arkansas and a PhD in African-American narratives from the University of North Texas. Hell on the Border is the second in Thompson’s trilogy of historical novels narrating the life of Bass Reeves, the former slave from Arkansas who became the greatest lawman of the American West.
