Wrote two western novels; CLEARWATER(76,694 words-276 pages) and MERCER’S MANOR(95,799 words-333 pages). There is no profanity in either. They are published by SYNERGEBOOKS in paperback and electronically on the Internet. Both novels are listed by Wal-Mart Online, Amazon, Borders, Books-A-Million, Barnes & Noble on the Internet. A hint: When he wrote MERCER’S MANOR, he had in his mind’s eye, Tom Selleck as Dan Mercer, Sam Elliott as his side-kick and Reba McEntire as the love interest. In CLEARWATER, he envisioned Clint Eastwood as the aging sheriff, doesn’t want to rock the boat just glide along until retirement.
Murder, suspense, rampant crime, and old fashion justice in a lawless land are all to be had in Bobby Woodall’s old west epic, CLEARWATER! But more than a western, this novel shows a psyche that some think only thrives in the modern world.
Sure to grace the silver screen, CLEARWATER will be an unadulterated look at how the west was truly won with strength, conviction and people with will and determination to survive whatever the cost.
Set in 1879 Indian Territory, this story takes you on a journey that allows you to feel the heart and soul of the characters who carved the path to today’s western living. Before freeways, convenience stores, and gangs, there were Indians, rugged countryside and outlaws.
When a cold-blooded killer escapes his execution and arrives in Clearwater, robbing the bank, leaving dead bodies in his wake and a town nearly burned to the ground, a posse is formed to capture him. In the days that follow you wonder just how innocent the ‘good guys’ really are.
CLEARWATER — a town hoping never to be found? A town of victims–Or a town where other criminals striving to escape the law have tried to start a new life? Can the good people of Clearwater forgive and forget? Can they rebuild the town? Do they want to? Will they stop the menace that threatens them?
Find out! Purchase your copy of CLEARWATER then give yourself plenty of time-you won’t want to put this book down until the very last page. Five Stars.
Dan Mercer is an ex-Union officer struggling to overcome the altrocities of having been a prisoner of war while forging a new life for himself on the untamed plains of Oklahoma. Now, as part-owner of a ranch he helped save from bankruptcy, the only thing marring his happiness is a lost love. So when the government sends him on a quest to find his love and betray her, Mercer has a choice to make…
“Mercer’s Manor by Bobby R. Woodall has Dan Mercer leading a cast of strong male characters through their paces. Mr. Woodall’s descriptions paint a vivid picture of the harsh realities of the best western tradition.” SHANNAH BIONDINE, author
“Mercer’s Manor is a refreshing novel like those I remember reading as a kid. It required me to use my imagination, unlike most graphically displayed books of today. We need more wholesome storywriters like Mr. Woodall.” RODERICK BOCKMILLER, Ph.D.
