What is your latest release and what genre is it? High Rider – Biographical novel

Quick description: High Rider is based on the life of John Ware (1845–1905). Born a slave on a rice plantation in South Carolina, Ware became one of the most successful independent ranchers in southern Alberta. The book details his adventures, as well as his trials and tribulations, on the long road that took him from South Carolina to Texas to Montana and finally north to Canada. High Rider is the story of a truly great, yet unsung, Canadian hero.
