While at Berkeley he authored many economics publications, and has, more recently, published two historical fiction Western novels, both by Sunstone Press: the award winning, “Where They Bury You,” and the sequel “Chief of Thieves."

Kohlhagen also pulled from his own knowledge of the West, as he divides his time between the New Mexico-Colorado border high in the San Juan Mountains and Charleston, South Carolina.
