I’ve been a writer, clown, tour guide, university professor, cook and more. Other people’s lives…how they see the world is endlessly fascinating - particularly the odd and interesting. Growing up in the Southwest, Native American views of the world and our connection with nature are ingrained. I like books with diverse characters and real situations that are not romances or slaughter-fests and make reading them a great ride. Alternate realities and why we ended up on this rock at this time fascinates me. An Adima creates with intention and takes responsibility for their actions. I aim for that every day.

If I can't do more.. then that's ok. I make my fingers move on the keys. My other trick is to work on something else for a while or another part of the book. I write mysteries, YA, middle grade, poetry... so I usually have 5 or 6 things cooking at once. If I get stuck on the main one, I shift to another for a little while. I also keep an ideas folder...but rarely have to look at it. (less)

There's a rush and a pleasure that is unlike anything I've ever felt. When you see all the pieces and they work.... it's a great feeling.
The other is seeing people read my work and be affected. It's a gift to me and I like it very much. (less)

This was a great adventure to write. It took a lot of research to bring in the Katsinim (many call them Katchinas) . I also wanted to focus more on the growth of the friends. Finally, I leave several bread crumbs leading to the third book. In Adima R ...more

“In the physical world,
for every action there is an opposite reaction.
Throw a ball against a wall and the wall pushes back.
The ball bounces.
In the world of the web of light, it is different.
For every action, there is a result,
but it rarely is the opposite.
Throw love at something. The result is more love.
Throw understanding.
The result is more understanding.
Even if you throw love at hate, the result is more love.
What do YOU throw?
It is your choice.
Your responsibility
There is always a result.
Not an opposite reaction.”
Steve Schatz, Adima Rising
