JOHN EDWARD AMES

 

John Edward Ames (who has also written 31 books as Judd Cole including the popular Cheyenne series) lives in New Orleans and has been a fulltime writer since 1986, when he sold his first novel, The Force.  Since quitting his job teaching English composition at the University of New Mexico, he has written 83 published books (and six more as a ghostwriter).  He has written one nonfiction book, The Real Deadwood, as John Ames.  He is also a freelance journalist and has appeared in many national and large urban newspapers, including The Christian Science Monitor, as well as dozens of Web sites.  For more information, see Biography and Titles section of this Web site.

 

More than anybody now writing about that long-ago time and place of the Old West, John Edward Ames most reminds me of my old friend and mentor, Will Henry.  I can truly think of no higher compliment to give either man.”

Terry C. Johnston, author of Winter Rain

What's New?
 
I HAVE BEEN FORCED TO REMOVE THE "CONTACT JOHN" OPTION ON THIS WEB SITE BECAUSE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESS ON AOL HAS BEEN HACKED.  I AND A FRIEND HAVE VERIFIED IT HAS BEEN "COMPRIMISED" SINCE AT LEAST JULY '09 AND ALMOST SURELY SOMEWHAT EARLIER.
 
TESTS SHOW THAT E-MAIL HAS BEEN SELECTIVELY BLOCKED COMING IN AND OUT, SOMETHING I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WAS POSSIBLE.
 
I'VE BEEN ADVISED TO LEAVE THE ACCOUNT OPEN FOR NOW.  BUT, AS OF TUESDAY, MAY 18, 2010 (THE DATE OF THE CONCLUSIVE TEST) I STOPPED USING IT TO SEND ANY MESSAGES EXCEPT FOR A FAILED EFFORT TO REPORT "OFFENSIVE IMAGES" TO GOOGLE ON MAY 20.
 
IF YOU ALREADY KNOW THIS ADDRESS, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO TRY IT WITH THE CAVEAT THAT YOUR MESSAGE IS PROBABLY BEING READ BY A THIRD PARTY--PERSONAL LETTERS OFTEN GET THROUGH, BUT PROFESSIONAL CONTACTS ARE ALMOST ROUTINELY BLOCKED. 
 
As you may have guessed from the above message, I'm the victim of a cyber bully.  Among other offenses he is systematically delinking my name from some of my most valued accomplishments.  I have compiled many of these missing links in a section on this website called Mystery of the Missing Links and Missing Links 2.
