There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

Dear Silver Pony,

Nice to hear from you. Your advanced reader is perfect for my novel. It takes place in the Navajo Nation with a Navajo protagonist. It's an adventure/mystery with lots of fun twists and turns. (p.s. - all my adult readers really liked it too, so it's okay if you read it!) I grew up in Apache County next door to the Navajo Nation and the White Mountain Apache Rez...most of my friends were Native and Hispanic. Silki, the Girl of Many Scarves: SUMMER OF THE ANCIENT is "Woven with Navajo language, tradition, and lore... is the first book in a series of one girl's adventures in the American Southwest." Novel #2 will be out in 2012.

Anyway, thanks for the interest. I'm guess we'll launch within three weeks if not before.

I have much I can tell you about Red. He was my step-dad, quite a bit older than my mom, and the most talented person I've ever known. His shirt factory carried the label "Red Myrick of Arizona." He incorporated in those white western shirts a certain kind of dart in the side seam. The dart was the first of its kind...and worked like this: When a person raised an arm, the sewn-in-dart allowed the movement without pulling the shirt itself up and out of one's jeans. So simple, yet so wonderful. Now...we see it in most clothes.

He had an amazing ability to cut out a pattern (from newspaper) to perfect size for someone just by eyeing them, no measurements needed. He had the factory long before I came along, and it was already something in his past by then. I'll ask my mom more about it...she's now 85. Red passed away in 1984 at age 77. I've never stopped missing him.

Next time, I'll tell you about his campaign when he was running for senator in New Mexico!

Wink Interview on Internet Radio

Hey there! I've been busier than a hive full of honeybees! Things are progressing very well, however. The other evening, I had an interview on Internet Radio with Cyrus Webb. It was smashing fun! Cyrus Webb has been compared to Oprah for his excellent interviewing skills. I certainly see why. He's smooth and professional, and a heck of a nice guy offline as well. The interview is short and moves quickly...give it a listen. I explain my love for Arizona and the Navajo Nation. Let me know what you think. Here's the link: Novel debuts 12/13/11. Ditto for the website and blog. Please stay in touch!

Just saw this update Jodi! I listened to your radio interview- you are fortunate to have such a lovely voice for radio. I was interested to learn about your childhood and how it inspired you to write. Huge congrats on your book coming out in only a couple of weeks-- you're nearly famous! I'm going to be your first customer. I have many friends who are very involved in the schools here, and I'll tell everyone about your book as well as look in to carrying it in our Native American jewelry store, we do carry a few books so I think it would fit right in!

Please do find the time to post occasional stories about your dad! We'd love to read more little bits and pieces, and there is nothing else written down... We will stay in touch-

Congrats again Jodi!
