ABOUT ME »

Yacolt Native Mysteries

My three book murder mystery series has elements of magic realism interspered throughout the Pacific Northwest Native American landscape as narrated by a twenty-eight year old Caucasian art teacher. Her insight is insipired by an inner sight that distorts her artistic vision. She sees lights, moving pictures painted upon canvas, and a fold in the Earth's landscape. Zena O'Donnell refers to this unique sight as her own private, different way of seeing. Those closest to her call it her Crazy White Bird way.

SYNOPSIS
