About R. W. Lang (Las Vegas, Nevada Author)
When I was a teenager, I read all the "James Bond" novels by Ian Fleming and thought that someday I would like to write a novel, too. I retired in February of 2012, and I live in Mesquite, Nevada. In the first year of my retirement, I read over 100 books. It was through this experience the idea of writing a novel re-emerged.
In November of 2013, I told my wife about the story I wanted to write, and she started laughing, then said that she thought I was being facetious. She is not laughing anymore. In late November, I started the novel, "Ghosts and Gold." In December of 2014, I decided to write the sequel, titled "Ghosts and Murder." In the fall of 2015, I wrote the third and final book in the Ghosts series, "Ghosts and Heroes." In May of 2016, I decided to try to write a thriller and started "The Mechanic," then in September of 2017 I started "America Strong."
I had a lot of fun writing these stories and I hope you will enjoy them. I know my wife Susan has because she was the editor for all five stories and has read them many times.
