WELCOME TO Whitcomb Springs! A new collection of short stories, and the occasional novella, written by multiple authors. The series is filled with stories of adventure, danger, romance, and hope, and is set in the fictional town of Whitcomb Springs, Montana Territory. The stories span the years of 1865-1885. Although each story may be set during a different time, they are stand-alone and may be read in any order. This is a on-going project, so new stories may be published at any time by one of the participating authors.
The introductory story, "Whitcomb Springs" is set just at the end of the American Civil War. It tells the story of the founders, Daniel & Evelyn Whitcomb, and sets the history for the town and its people. I hope you enjoy getting to know the townsfolk; there will be more to come at random times by different authors.
In the spring of 1865, a letter arrives in Whitcomb Springs for Evelyn Whitcomb. The Civil War has ended and the whereabouts of her husband is unknown, but she doesn’t give up hope. With courage, the help of a friend, and the love of a people, Evelyn finds a way to face—and endure—the unexpected.
Stay tuned! A new post will go out whenever an author publishes a story in this series.

SAMANTHA ST. CLAIRE
Samantha St. Claire was born in 2016, the alter-ego and pen name of an author of historical fiction born a few decades earlier. She may have found her niche in western historical fiction, served up sweet. Never faint of heart, her signature protagonists face the hazards of the frontier with courage, wit, and a healthy pinch of humor. The road from college graduation led due west where teaching in a small Arizona town fulfilled childhood fantasies on multiple levels. Hiking and backpacking the canyons and desert fed her imagination with the landscapes she would use later in life as an author. Moving to California opened new vistas, but Idaho sparked her interest in the history of the magnificent central mountain ranges.
