I Like This Red Room Thing!
The cover I did for my upcoming book on the Indians of Iowa

I just signed up today, and am concentrating on getting my profile and published works up first. Most of what I have done so far that has been published is nonfiction and essay. I have some fiction too, which I will post later. I live in Montana, but since I am a member of the Ioway tribe, a lot of what I have written and published is about Iowa, our homeland which was named for us.

This fall (2009), my first solo, full-length book will be published by the University of Iowa Press, and is about the Indians of Iowa. This year I also have an essay about the Indians and forts of Iowa being published by UI Press as part of a larger collection. I did the covers for both books; I am an artist too. I gotta get used to this blowing your own horn thing though :-P I just like doing the work.

I would eventually like to get some of my fiction published as well, and expand the kinds of things I write about.

So far, I like what I see about Red Room, and think it is a great thing they have done for authors in making this resource available...you guys rock!...anyhooo...back to the profile...

Hi Luciana

Hi Luciana

Yes, that is an eagle feather attached to his cap. It is a fashion you often see on reservations in modern times

How do you like to combine images and text in your writing?
