I am a biographer and writer of narrative non-fiction. I have just completed a biography of writer Tony Hillerman, the author of ground-breaking mysteries set in the Navajo Nation. It should be in stores in October. Hillerman, in the words of the Los Angeles Times, “reinvented the mystery novel as a venue for the exploration and celebration of Native American history, culture and identity.”

Read about Hillerman’s first novel The Blessing Way.
