I’m delighted to announce that Touchpoint Press will be releasing my novel Wolf Catcher on February 2, 2022. For lovers of suspense and historical fiction based in fact, I encourage you to take a look.
Kate and Kaya, who are separated by nine centuries, both feel rejected by the societies in which they live and are bound together by one man. The Magician, as he came to be called, was discovered in 1939 when archeologists uncovered a tomb at a remote Northern Arizona site called Ridge Ruin. The man, bedecked in fine turquoise jewelry and intricate beadwork, was surrounded by myriad pots, arrow points, and fine mineral specimens. But it was the wooden swords with handles carved into animal hooves and human hands that the Hopi workers explained identified him as a magician.
But who was he? In my former role as a journalist, I was tasked with determining why this man, who appeared different from the people who buried him, was interred so reverently and with such incredible wealth. Many of the situations that fictional reporter Kate Butler faces in the story actually happened. My research carried me back to a time when the high desert world was shattered by the birth of a volcano, then forward into the present-day dangers of archeological looting and the black market sales of antiquities.
Pre-orders are available here.
