It’s November and that means it’s NANOWRIMO. To celebrate my first Nanowrimo novel, Zero Repeat Forever being on the way to publication by Simon & Schuster I’m featuring many published or soon-to-be-published Nanowrimo novels over the month of November.
Today I’m featuring Rebecca Roanhorse, whose Novel Trail of Lightning will be published by Simon & Schuster’s Saga Press in the summer of 2018. Trail of Lightning is set on the Navajo reservation in the near future, after the collapse of society. It follows a young Navajo woman who hunts monsters with the help of an untested medicine man. The book was pitched an indigenous Mad Max: Fury Road.
THAT SOUNDS TOTALLY WICKED!
Rebecca Roanhorse is a writer of rez-based Fantasy and Indigenous Futurisms . She’s a VONA/Voices alum, pug owner, and Yale undergrad. She has theology and Law degrees, too. Rebecca is Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo + African American, and a Navajo in-law. She is based in Santa Fe, NM.
I’m looking forward to meeting Rebecca on the sci-fi con circuit in 2018!
