About Us

Western Fictioneers is the only professional writers organization composed entirely of authors who have written Western fiction, the classic American genre.

Western Fictioneers is home to the most talented and prolific writers in the world today.  No brag, just fact, as Walter Brennan said in The Guns of Will Sonnett.

Our members write in all genres, and all genres within the Western genre itself.  That's right, a good Western story can encompass durn near anything from action/adventure, horror, fantasy, romance, mystery, paranormal, or all of the aforementioned combined.  Whether you prefer the traditional "Save the ranch" stories or tales that take you to the edge, the Western genre has something for you, and one of our members has written it.

We pride ourselves in excellence.  Take a look at the Peacemaker Award winners—read these entertaining and gripping books.  All nominated books are in the upper levels of quality, so don’t overlook those who didn’t win the top prize.  Sometimes the best one is hard to pick when all are such compelling reads.  Western Fictioneers also chooses a Lifetime Achievement recipient, and believe me, an author has to be talented, prolific, and tenacious to even be considered.  So please check out the Western Fictioneers Lifetime Achievement winners.

Our members are novelists, short story writers, poets, song writers, and screen writers, and we keep the torch burning bright for our genre.  Together, Western readers, Western writers, and Western publishing professionals, share a common bond--a love of a genre that so many have said the last rites over, and yet Westerns of all types continue on, strong and proud.

Western Fictioneers is also a group of some of the nicest people I have ever met.  Their achievements are great, but their kindness and generosity is greater.  I'm honored to be part of this group, and invite other western writers to join the fun.  You won't be sorry.
