Native American Lit
I don't write vampires, werewolves, fairies, or witches, although I love reading the stories from authors who do. But finally something that I love to write about--Native American characters and their stories--is beginning to rear its impatient head. Too soon to call it an official, full-blown trend but I am hopeful.
Why there aren't lots more mainstream stories with Native American characters remains a mystery to me, especially since the cultures are so rich, colorful and varied. Ditto for stories written in the American Southwest. Yeah, I'm a desert girl too.
Anyway, a girl can dream. (And I do.)
Have a fab weekend! It should be a busy one here at the O.K. Corral. Craig and I have two parties (the same day), a house project, and a trip to Old Town Scottsdale planned. I was hoping to squeeze in a book and a movie somewhere in all that, but we'll see. Are you doing anything fun??
