Books by Dana Glossbrenner

The discovery of a human skeleton in Wayne Cheadham's south field halts his gravel pit excavation and points a finger at his first wife Lucy, who might be the killer. The story flashes back to Lucy's story and goes from there. 

Wayne is snake bit when it comes to finding love and making money on his West Texas ranch. He deserves more. With humor, quick pacing, and insight, the story of Wayne and three women he loves unfolds.

Advance Praise for Low Water Crossing:

In Low Water Crossing, Dana Glossbrenner nails the sights, smells, and human interactions so typical in a small West Texas town. Murder, dark secrets, shame, and revenge interweave in colorful personalities who pass through Wayne Cheatham's life. Heavy doses of tongue-in-cheek humor lighten and entertain as Wayne brings the plot full circle with truth, justice, and honor: the Cowboy Way.

Low Water Crossing

"It's not about low water--it's a low place, a low crossing, might take you through swift-running water if there's a lot of rain. You have to be careful. The rushing water could push you off the road. That's why there's always warning signs." from Low Water Crossing. 

The Lark:

Book 1 of the Sulfur Gap Series

New edition with a group discussion guide and new cover.

Advance praise:

The Lark is my favorite kind of book, in that it has it all – a little romance, a little mystery, characters you feel like you have known all your life, and a lot of laughs. Then, just when I’d settled in for what I thought was a lighthearted romp, bam, it hit me right in the feels. Charming, funny, and real.

     Charley Bristow takes some things seriously--work, dancing, pool-playing, and women, but maybe not in that order. He finds the true importance of friends and family.

Rick Smith, San Angelo Standard Times

Glossbrenner has crafted a totally engaging quest for happiness, set it in a totally genuine contemporary Texas, and delivered up great characters for a great read." --Cliff Hudder, author of Splinterville and Pretty Enough for You.
