The struggles of a culture to survive, and the importance storytelling has always played in that effort frames the historical novel, "Storykeeper." It is “a vivid epic” (Kirkus Reviews), based on three surviving Spanish journals written during the expedition of Hernando de Soto, but it is told from the perspective of the ancient people of the Mississippi River Valley, who lived and survived America's deadliest invasion.

A century later, Manaha empowered by a dream and against the taboos of her small tribe of survivors, fights to keep alive the memories of their decimated homeland through her nightly story-fires.

"I was not only entertained by this book, but educated about a period of history of which I knew nothing.” (Editorial Choice) - Helen Hollick, Managing Editor (Historical Novel Society).

“Surprisingly succinct for its subject, rich in its detail, and highly recommended for historical fiction readers who want more than a casual pursuit.” - D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, (Midwest Book Review).
