Ken spent thirty years raising Beefmaster cattle and Quarter horses in Texas and forty-five years as a professional actor (after a stint in the Marine Corps). Those years gave him a background for storytelling…or as he has been known to say, "I've always been a bit of a bull---t artist, so writing novels kind of came naturally once it occurred to me I could put my stories down on paper. I don't write about outlaws and peace officers...I write about people. Ken's writing style has been likened to a combination of Louis L'Amour and Terry C. Johnston with an occasional Hitchcockian twist. In addition to his love for writing fiction, he likes to teach acting, voice-over and writing workshops. His favorite expression is: "Just tell the damn story." Writing has become Ken's second life: he has been a Marine, played collegiate football, been a Texas wildcatter, cattle and horse rancher, professional film and TV actor and now...a novelist. Who knew? I've read many Zane Grey and Louis L'Amour novels, but I enjoy Ken Farmer's the best! - Dr. Ernest Martin, DDS.

I enjoy everything he writes whether it is about the old west, southern noir mysteries, or about the modern Black Eagle Force. - Israel Drazin TOP 1000 REVIEWER & VINE VOICE. And NO! I don't write about Rome. i don't write erotica...It's not me.
