After an award-winning detour through journalism and marketing and a graduate degree from Dallas Theological Seminary, N. B. Horton returned to writing fiction. She has surveyed Israeli archaeological digs accompanied by heavy artillery rounds from Syria and machine gun fire from Lebanon (twice!). Explored Machu Picchu after training with an Incan shaman. Cruised the Amazon and its tributaries after tossing a tarantula from her skiff. And consumed afternoon tea across five continents and the North Atlantic.


She writes award-winning international suspense driven by contemporary family dynamics. Her second book, The Brothers’ Keepers, is the second place winner in the prestigious 2014 LYRA Awards for self-published fiction.


Horton is a member of the venerable Explorers Club, an international, multidisciplinary society dedicated to the advancement of field research and the idea that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore. She also is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers.


A mother of two adult children, Horton lives atop a mountain with her husband of almost thirty years, an ancient tabby cat, and whatever predator wanders through the back meadow. She’s passionate about her faith, archaeology, women’s issues, and the environment. Horton also a world-class angler, a competent wing-shooter, and a dirt-encrusted gardener once the snow melts.


Both novels, When Camels Fly (May 2014) and The Brothers’ Keepers (November 2014), are available on Amazon. She is writing the third now and plans to release it in 2016.
