Hydra Publications is excited to announce the release of Salt Fork Stations by Kansas native, Rock Neelly, on February 4th, 2022.
     Your past is your history. Your ancestors, your predecessors.
     How did their lives impact your own? Are you on your own path or does fate play a hand?
     Rock Neelly tackles these questions in a rollicking novel that bounces between the rough and rowdy settling of Oklahoma’s Cherokee Strip and the turbulent times of Lawrence, Kansas during the 1960’s civil rights unrest.
     One family, two eons—1893 and 1963— connected through time. Fate’s fortune will force a family to confront its past in a chain of events, seemingly inevitable, and yet shocking in its unpredictability.
     You can’t pick your family. Can you pick your fate?
     Rock Neelly is originally from Hutchinson, Kansas, having grown-up spending weekends on family farms in both Oklahoma and Kansas. The son of teachers, he grew up shooting basketballs and pheasants.
     After attending college in Denver, he began writing for newspapers, magazines, and various other publications. He has written four novels, one collection of short stories, and one novella.
He is currently a professor of literature and film in Northern Kentucky near Cincinnati.
Rock resides near Lebanon, Ohio.
