Author brings home Spur Award

NOBLESVILLE — Noblesville author Larry D. Sweazy was awarded the 2013 WWA (Western Writers of America) Spur Award for Best Original Mass Market Paperback at the annual WWA conference held recently in Las Vegas, Nev.

The winning novel, "The Coyote Tracker," is the fifth book in the Josiah Wolfe series (Berkley). The series has garnered several previous awards including back-to-back wins of the Will Rogers Medallion Award for Western fiction (2011 and 2012), and the Best Book of Indiana award in 2011. Sweazy previously won the WWA Spur Award in 2005 for Best Short Fiction.

In "The Coyote Tracker," fictional Texas Ranger Josiah Wolfe must save his friend, and fellow Ranger, Scrap Elliot, from the hangman’s noose for a crime he did not commit. Western and mystery elements contribute to the novel’s broad appeal. The Josiah Wolfe series concluded with the recent publication of "The Gila Wars." A new Western series by Sweazy is set for release next year.

Sweazy will appear Aug. 15 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Noblesville Library, One Library Plaza, Noblesville.

For more information, call (317) 773-1384.
