Laramie Wyoming Businesses and Culture Inspire Novelist
Laramie Wyoming would seem like an odd location to begin a thriller about a safe cracker but, if you ask author E. Cooper Ostresh, it was the perfect inspiration to create characters that drive his new novel.
Other locations around the Laramie and Front Range areas are featured in the novel. The rest of the cast of characters includes a college student from the Colorado School of Mines, a fitness instructor from Ft. Collins, and a pawn shop owner from Cheyenne. The author says, “It was partially a practical matter, since you always write what you know better than what you research, but it was also a matter of trying to step outside of the standard heist story format. I mean, Carey Grant and George Clooney have done great jobs portraying classy debonair masterminds but I think that has also become somewhat of a tired archetype. It is time for something new in the genre and I have worked hard to bring that to the book.”
Whether Boxman will be a success is yet to be seen but it should be of interest to residents of Wyoming as well as fans of the crime thrillers who are ready for a fresh take on the genre. Boxman is now available at Amazon.com.
