Warriors Of St. Antoni
On the frontier world of St. Antoni, you got tough—or you died.
The Portal to the world of St. Antoni was unsanctioned. Immigrants who reached there were desperate to escape earth. They snuck through the Portal with only what they could carry and faced an alien world without earths advanced technology. By sheer grit and determination St. Antonoians have fought their way back to the steam age.
City states were controlled by powerful families, and the outlying ranches and mines were held by families with enough guns and the guts to use them.
This is the story of sisters Bethany, Jeanne and Iris and their struggle to survive and hang on to their ranch and mine after a sniper cripples their father. Bethany marries a mercenary gunfighter to shield her family from a predatory neighbor. To her surprise, the marriage of convenience turns into a love match, but Bethany and Alec must learn to trust as well as love each other. Iris chooses an arranged marriage with a beloved old friend, but did Carlos marry her for love, or to please her father? Jeanne and Samuel fall in love and run away to a distant city, but discover you can't escape who you are; Samuel is the son of her family's greatest enemy. Will their love be strong enough to survive when Samuel's father demands he return to the clan?
A combination of Steampunk and shoot-em-up Western
About Gail Daley (Fresno, California Author)
Gail Daley is a self-taught artist and writer with a background in business. An omnivorous reader, she was inspired by her son, also a writer, to finish some of the incomplete novels she had begun over the years. She is heavily involved in local art groups and fills her time reading, writing, painting in acrylics, and spending time with her husband of 40 plus years.
Currently her family is owned by two cats, a mischievous young cat called Mab (after the fairy queen of air and darkness) and a mellow Gray Princess named Moonstone. In the past, the family shared their home with many dogs, cats and a Guinea Pig, all of whom have passed over the rainbow bridge. A recent major surgery on her stomach and a bout with breast cancer has slowed her down a little, but she continues to write and paint.
