where the writers are

Lance M Foster's Biography

Member Info

Helena, Montana
Yes, to Lisa Nelmida. Almost 15 years together, married since 2002.
Feb 2009

I was raised in Helena, Montana and graduated school here. I am the first one in my family to attend and graduate from college. I went to art school in Santa Fe. I couldn't decide between being a writer and an artist; I love both words and images. I am mixed-blood, enrolled in the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska. I'll add more later. I live in Helena now, and teach a few classes and do a good impression of a starving writer and artist.

Upcoming Works

Indians of Iowa, to be published by the University of Iowa Press in the Fall of 2009.
