After that he worked as a deputy sheriff, and spent time in the army. When he returned, Johnstone went into radio broadcasting, where he worked for sixteen years. Johnstone started writing in 1970, but was not published until late 1979. His first published book was The Devil's Kiss.
He wrote close to two hundred books during his lifetime including the Ashes series, Mountain Man series, The First Mountain Man series, and Eagles series. He began writing full-time in the early 1980's. He died on February 8, 2004 at the age of 65.
The Greatest Western Writer of The 21st CenturyThe adopted son of mountain man Smoke Jensen, he has carved out his destiny in the rugged American frontier. His name is Matt Jensen. He lives by the gun--and surrenders to no one... Dakota Ambush Twelve years ago, newspaperman John Bryce saved an innocent man from the hangman's noose. That man was Matt Jensen. In gratitude, Matt gave Bryce four gold nuggets and told him, If there's ever anything I can do, just let me know.
Now, that day has come. As editor of the Fullerton Defender, Bryce has become the target of a powerful--and ruthless--English lord. A feared master duelist, his aim is fixed on the Dakota Territories. His weapons are intimidation and violence. And his hired guns are the most sadistic and deadliest prairie rats Matt Jensen has ever known.
