John Legg has published more than sixty-five novels, most on Old West themes. Comanche Blood, published in June 2019 by Wolfpack Publishing, is his latest novel.

His first two novels, Cheyenne Lance and Medicine Wagon, were published while Legg was acquiring a B.A. in Communications and an M.S. in Journalism. Legg, who is now retired from his day job, is a longtime newspaper copy editor, having spent almost forty years at various newspapers, large and small.  

Since those two books, Legg has, under his own name, entertained the Western audience with many more tales of man's fight for independence on the Western frontier, including several historical novels set in the Old West, among them War at Bent's Fort and Blood at Fort Bridger.

In addition, Legg has, under pseudonyms, contributed to the Ramseys, a Western series published by Berkley Books, and he was the sole author of the eight novels in the Wildgun adult Western series for Berkley. He also was the sole author of the eight books in the Saddle Tramp series for HarperPaperbacks and has worked on the Texas Tracker series for Berkley.

Keenly interested in all facets of American history on the frontier, Legg was a member of The Opposition, a living history organization dedicated to accuracy in recording and portraying the times of the fur trade until the group ceased operating. He also has published a number of magazine articles and a nonfiction book on the subject, Shinin' Trails: A Possibles Bag of Fur Trade Trivia.

In addition, has published Cold Killer, a men's adventure novel; Shadowwalker, a sword and sorcery fantasy; and Wolf, and Dead Man's  Gun, both paranormal Westerns.
