FANNY LEIA ELLEN (NEE) AVERY PRICE
E-bookcollection.com is proud to re-introduce a contributing author.
Fanny Leia Ellen (nee) Avery Price is a retired registered nurse who found herself at loose when her husband of forty years passed away in 2017. Although she found satisfaction in singing in her church choir, attending Bible study, adult coloring book, and reading westerns and watching western movies, it wasn’t until she was persuaded by D.L. Roberts to turn her reading and viewing passion into writing.
Blood on Blackrock Mountain is her first foray into the world of E-Publishing. This book-length feature has all the elements of a very readable novel: plot – setting – dialogue – humor and just a tiny smattering of sex. This successful work was quickly followed by Death on Blackrock Mountain.
She has stepped out of the western mode to enter the realm of murder mysteries. Murder on Combs Hill will should be available on-line in June 2020. Look for it.

- Author of 80+ books
Although he had various interests in his life, it was as an author of mostly adventure novels for boys and girls that he is best known. The edited version presented through this website was copyrighted in 1939 by Wildside Press. The Sign of the Green Arrow is offered here at an attractive price and many of his works are available through other sources at somewhat elevated prices.
He graduated from Wheaton Academy in 1906 and entered the ministry which led him to an array of postings, but just ten years later, his first book Little White Fox and His Arctic Friends was sold for the princely sum of $6.24. That, as is said, was just the beginning. Preferring to sequester himself while working, he could commit 2,000 words a minute to a manuscript and complete it for publication in record time. As successful as he was with well over a million books in print, he sometimes regretted a writing career. Those of us who fancy his style of weaving a mystery, appreciate his keen use of the English language. To read his books today will seem dated, however, they continue to entertain and offer escape into another world.
I hope you enjoy Sign of the Green Arrow.
