Bart Ambrose grew up on an Arizona cotton farm where he spent his nights reading novels and teaching himself to play guitar. A graduate of ASU, he worked as a natural resource conservationist. A second career took him to Nashville, writing and teaching songwriting and guitar. Then back to Arizona to pursue his writing. His first novels are historical fiction set in early to mid-twentieth-century Arizona; vivid journeys and adventures in a fascinating era of the state’s history. The two recent novels are part of a series featuring a young deputy sheriff in Maricopa County as he pursues human traffickers, organized crime, and a serial killer. Bart and his wife live near Tucson, Arizona.
