G.P. Schultz has won the Thorpe Menn Award for his novel, Incident at Simms Center. The award is named after the longtime literary editor of the Kansas City Star. George Gurley - Kansas City Star. When newspaper reporter Marcie Peterson is sent to Simms Center to report on the growing power of a right wing political organization, she quickly realizes that underneath the surface of this picture postcard community lies a volcanic hotbed of insurrection that threatens at any moment to explode into violence. She files stories that blaze across national headlines, giving a powerful voice to citizens fed up with bureaucratic interference in their lives. As tension builds between Simms Center and the government, Marcie is drawn into the lives of the townspeople. There's the mysterious Pawnee indian, Chief Chaote, who harbors an ancient grudge against the white man, and will use the crisis to further his own ends. There's Professor Elliot, an eloquent voice for the people's rights and Jeffersonian democracy, and his beautiful daughter Jennifer, an award winning photojournalist who has recently returned with her husband to Simms Center. And there's Jim Simms, a rancher, descendent of the town's founders, a calming presence in the community and a man desperately in love with Jennifer. Finally, there's Jim's best friend Bobby Cottrell, a handsome but troubled Vietnam veteran whose family farm has been driven into foreclosure by government policy. Marcie finds herself falling in love with Bobby, even as his unresolved internal war threatens to be the undoing of everyone around him.It's up to Herb Tully, aging veteran of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, and Ward Garrett of the Kansas Highway Patrol, to join forces to try to find out who's responsible for the escalating violence that holds the town hostage. Is it the radical Posse Comitatus? The FBI? The CIA? Are officials at the highest levels of the government involved? Can the truth be learned in time to save Bobby Cottrell from his own demons -and the town from disaster?

Read information about the authorBio Smash
G.P. Schultz was born in Longacre, West Virginia to a coal mining family. He grew up in wild, wonderful West Virginia, where he loved to play sports. He then served with the 25th Infantry Division in Hawaii where he met his wife, Vicki, who was attending the University of Hawaii. They have two daughters and currently reside in Kansas City.
His writing career began in mid-life, with the publication of his first novel, Gully Town. His idea for the novel came from years of working with the Irish and the Itailans in the River Quay area of Kansas City, and he wanted to revive the city’s rich history in a novel.
He currently divides his time between his one man marketing business and writing, but also enjoys golf and gardening, and follows any sporting event that requires the use of a ball.
He writes fiction, but combines it with years of research to make his novels accurate in time and place. His writing philosophy is, that you can’t have a compelling story, without a compelling romance.
