Author Biography

Christi Corbett had an early love for the written word. As a child she could often be seen leaving the library with a stack of books so tall she used her chin to balance them in her arms.

She’s now an award-winning author, writing stories of brave men and spirited women settling the American west.

It’s November 1867 in Retribution Road by Christi Corbett. Graham, a former veterinarian who has lost his livelihood and reputation, is making his way through the vast Montana territory to meet with his brother, a blacksmith in Bozeman. Graham intends to stop on the way in the town of Whitcomb Springs to evaluate his options for regaining work tending animals or supplying miners. Before he can find the town, a frigid and hungry Graham comes across two men whose camp promises food and warmth. His encounter with the men is pleasant enough, but as he departs, he overhears their plans to assault a spinster woman who lives on the outskirts of town and rob the supply wagon set to move through the next day. Determined not to let that happen, Graham trails the two men and quickly finds himself in the midst of a battle of weapons and wits with the woman, whose name is Willow, the two men, and a dog named Winston, who is caught in the middle.

I thoroughly enjoyed Retribution Road by Christi Corbett. There is much packed into this short story to love and get lost in. The nineteenth century setting is beautifully described and the reader feels immediately at home in that time and space. The reader also becomes instantly familiar with Graham and Willow, fascinating characters we have the privilege of getting to know as they get to know each other. Retribution Road takes place over one action-filled day that finds the characters battling everything from injury to false arrest to conflicted emotions. The reader will root for this unusual trio as they fight multiple battles against outside forces. This is, in truth, an adventure love story that pulls on the heartstrings of the reader. I highly recommend Retribution Road and warn you that you will not want it to end!
