2012 didn't exactly start off well for western readers and authors, when writer, Howard Hopkins passed away.
I had a fairly strong online relationship with Howard, we shared a publisher and several online forums. And I know that many people in the Black Horse writing community interacted just as regularly with Howard.
He was an inspiration to us all with over thirty Black Horse Westerns beneath his belt as well as books in other genres.
I was pleased to join a new Facebook group dedicated to Howard's memory and anyone interested can find it HERE
