Bob Harold Leach, aka “The Most Notorious Cattle Rustler of Our Time…
From his early aspirations of managing cattle herds, acquiring a ranch to call his own, and marrying the girl of his dreams, Bob’s journey through life leads him to a life of stealing cattle, using other men’s ranches to do it, and making out with every woman that came across his way. But when Bob gets involved with the notorious Diamond Jim, he is permanently “branded” with Diamond Jim’s mark, just like a steer. He is grudgingly forced into a never-ending string of crimes, including kidnapping, rape, stealing animal medicines, cattle rustling, drug dealing, fraud, porn, and a host of other atrocities that put the “ordinary criminal” to shame.
Texan Jon Armour developed his passion for writing as a young student in middle school under the encouragement of his English teacher, Ms. Susan Smallridge. Her attention and prodding to attain witty and descriptive prose in his subject matter bled over into every area of Jon’s life. He is a jack of all trades: carpenter, cook, electrician, plumber, builder, designer, welder, cheesemaker, home brewer, project manager, IT professional, husband, father, and author. But aside from this vast array of interests and roles, he has come back to applying his creativity to writing, a first love that was side-tracked by life’s busy schedules and bustling activities. Jon’s once-blank pages are now overflowing with creative splatter transcending across scenes of crime, love, sex, humor, and other varied emotional conditions of human existence. Jon captures the essence of raw life and true grit in his subjects. From his recent work, Branded, to his future endeavors, readers are sure to be entertained by his wit and style depicting colorful evocative vignettes that take the reader deep into this story based on a real live cattle rustler. Jon lives in Magnolia (near Houston), Texas, with his wife Karen.
