At the age of 15, the author quit school and started working in the carnival as a deputy sheriff. In later years he served in the army and upon retiring from the military, he worked as radio broadcasting for one and half decade.

His career in writing began in 1970; however, none of his works was published until the year 1980 when The Devils Kiss was released. Johnstone quit his job and became a full-time writer in 1980, and since then the author wrote almost two hundred books of different genres including; Men’s Adventure, Suspense, Westerns, Post-Apocalyptic, and Horror. The main series publications from the author are Ashes & Eagles, Mountain Man, and The First Mountain Man while his personal favorite book was The Last of the Dog Team published in 1980. The author also published other two novels under pseudonym William Mason.

Johnstone lived for decades in Shreveport, Louisiana, however, died in Knoxville, TN on February 8th, 2004 aged 65years. His death remained unconfirmed for nearly three years, and it was the subject of debate in a forum on his website. No official statements were issued until in 2006 after the Last Gunfighter: Devils Legion was released and on its copyright page indicating that the author had indeed died as someone else selected to continue his legacy.

William W. Johnstone is popularly known for series such as The First Mountain Man series that consist of over 20 books. The Last Mountain consists of over 30 novels some of which were written by Johnstone himself while his successor wrote some of the recent books in the series.

WILLIAM W. JOHNSTONE AWARDS

Johnstone is a recognized author who during his writing career won several awards. For instance, he was voted as the best-selling author of the USA today and New York bestselling author.

BEST WILLIAM W. JOHNSTONE BOOKS

These are the best two books by American bestselling author William W. Johnstone.

Out of the Ashes: The second book in Ashes series by Johnstone. The worst event has happened once again; a nuclear strike has destroyed and crippled America. Looters, gangs, and vandals have taken over the streets. The good few can only pray and hope that a leader will arise to protect them. Luckily, one of the few survivors, Ben Raines, a retired soldier, a rebel mercenary and a tireless patriot is in search of his missing family after the aftermath of the crippling war. His unfailing effort in pursuit of his family in the ruined cities of the West unites him with the resistance forces. These individuals become his recruits to serve as a revolutionary army aimed at rebuilding America. With the revolutionary army forging a way to rebuilding a once thriving nation brought down to ashes, the government forces strike again. Moreover, with the fate of the few American patriot hanging in the balance Raines vows to undertake whatever it takes in his capability to survive, find the whereabouts of his family and rebuild the fallen nation.

Fire in the Ashes: It is in the year 1999, and a nuclear holocaust has destroyed the entire world. A few of the survivors is Ben Raines a Vietnam veteran who good with the combat skills. Ben also served as a mercenary in Africa and after his retirement wrote some bunch of pulp fiction.

A stung by yellow jackets that give him “coma” somehow saves him from the nuclear attack on the US. He wakes up only to find himself in the apocalyptic world not knowing the whereabouts of his family, and in his quest to find his family he ends up being the leader of the revolutionary army.

As the greatest rebel enemy (the US government) comes down crushing their dreams, an even worst peril awaits them, indestructible breeds of people.

In summary, Johnstone was a prolific writer, and his legacy remains up to date. His stories were prophetic in a way whether, by sheer coincidence or design, they somehow predicted the social and political climate that exist in the modern world.
