about
Wes Boyd's writing

"I find your style of writing very refreshing! Please keep it going - the personal interest implicit in each story is what makes them so great!"

"I admire your way of fleshing out the characters - giving them life instead of merely portraying masks."

"Your entire Dawnwalker series has been delightful. Reading initially for pleasure, your series quickly became a lesson from a fine craftsman. I've learned much but the reading pleasure never waned."

"Your stories never disappoint me, or let me down. I enjoy them all -- they are 'Feel Good' Stories!"

"I continue to enjoy your writing and you keep getting better at it. Thanks so much for your time and genius."

"Your characters, settings and story lines seem so real that I feel you are letting me peek in on a part of life that I'd have otherwise never known anything about."


Forgotten Killer
A Tale From Spearfish Lake
by Wes Boyd 2013, 2015

It's all but forgotten now, but two things scared people in the first half of the 1950s more than anything else. The atomic bomb was one of them, and infantile paralysis - polio - was the other. While polio could strike people of any age, it mostly targeted children, often crippling them for life, and sometimes killing them despite the best possible efforts available to stem the disease. When polio came to Spearfish Lake in 1955, there were only two choices that everyone faced: run and hide, or stand and fight against unknown and seemingly impossible odds, doing what little they could, however they could, for sake of the lives of the town's children.
