J.C. Hulsey is the founder of Outlaws Echo Digital Magazine and parent company Outlaws Publishing, LLC. He has lived in Midlothian, Texas for over thirty years. He’s a father, grandfather and great-grandfather and has been married for over five decades. J.C. enjoys Western movies and TV Shows, (especially the older ones) and reading about Mail-Order Brides. He is also the owner of six cats (all stray cats that showed up on the back porch) and one dog (a rescue dog). He worked for 33 years at Bell Helicopter and served in the U.S. Air Force for five years in addition to serving four years in the Air National Guard.
He started writing music while in his early twenties and recorded a couple of songs in the late 1960s. J.C. Hulsey then began writing poetry in the 1970s to share with others. He self-published them on Amazon in 2013. Yet, he still felt the need to write something different. He tried writing a book in the 1970s, but it was never finished. In 2014, he felt the urge to write a Western novel. However, he knew he needed to write something different than what was currently on the market. He thought…”What about a young Christian Gunfighter”? That book turned into a series of seven books that won First Place for Best Western Series in 2015 from the Texas Association of Authors.
He now operates the most successful Western publishing business in the United States in Outlaws Publishing, LLC, a Country/Western/Pop radio station for successful and aspiring musicians, poets and storytellers, called Outlaws Radio Network, as well as this online digital magazine publication Outlaws Echo.
