Guy Worthey

Pretty Please Photography

Wyoming native Guy Worthey traded spurs and lassos for telescopes and computers when he decided on astrophysics for a day job.

He writes adventure fiction set in the 1920's featuring heroine pilot Ace Carroway and her quirky band of five associates.

The Ace Carroway series contains: Cliffhangers. Airships. Biplanes. Fistfights. Female protagonist kicking bottom. Quirky multinational sidekicks. Outrageous accents. Dogfights. Daring escapes. Pole vaulting. Peril. Guys in trench coats. Murder investigations. Explosions. Black market abductions. Ford roadsters with running boards. Brawls. Rotary dial telephones. Roses. Hamlet. Cowboy drawl. Tommy guns. Clipped sentences. Hired thugs. Jazz. And remember, when climbing to altitude, chew gum to help the pressure equalize.
