O, Ha le,
O, Ha le.
          Through the air
               I fly upon a cloud....
                           ...Geronimo's Song
I grew up in Douglas, Arizona, right on the Mexican border, about twenty miles from Skeleton Canyon, where Geronimo surrendered. We lived on Cochise Drive, enjoyed a cabin in the Chiricahua Mountains, and picnicked under the pines and along the streams of Cochise Stronghold. However, the land never laid claim on me until two years ago when the title "Geronimo's Daughter" intrigued me and I began writing--and writing--till I completed a story about the search for identity and the saving grace of love and endurance and family, set within the framework of cowboys and Indians in territorial Arizona.  
The Sun, the Darkness, the Winds are all listening to what we now say..
