Arizona native Bart Ambrose grew up on an Arizona cotton farm where he spent his nights reading novels and teaching himself to play guitar. He graduated from ASU and worked as a natural resource conservationist. A second career took him to Nashville, writing and teaching songwriting and guitar. In his first novel, Cactizonians’ Treasure, he takes readers on a vivid journey through the Sonoran Desert of Arizona and Mexico in a fascinating twist on a lost treasure legend. Bart and his wife live near Tucson, Arizona. His hobbies include writing haiku, travel, and pursuit of the perfect chili relleno.
