It's a busy time of year for Wyoming author Craig Johnson.

The scribe behind the Walt Longmire mystery series is releasing a new book, A Serpent's Tooth, June 4th.  He's also on tour signing books starting this weekend, and the A&E television series Longmire, based on Johnson's novels, is starting its second season on Monday.

The mystery book series, along with the television series, follows Walt Longmire, a rugged but fair contemporary lawman from the fictitious Absaroka County in Wyoming.

Trevor T. Trujillo was able to interview Johnson about the books, the television series, and about being a writer in the state of Wyoming, you can listen to that interview here:
