About this project
The purpose of publishing my book is to entertain as well as educate. The first adventure of the Kid Kachinas does center in and around the four corners of the USA. The story is strickly fantasy but woven together based on factual Hopi myths and beliefs. The topography is accurate if you go back in time some tens of thousands of years ago. I use Hopi words and names when appropriate throughout the story. It is their first adventure off and down to the desert floor. They already started their adventure before leaving the Mesa. It is the magic in the water at the old black water pond. No one has ever even put a toe into it for that has always been forbidden. There is shape shifting, morphing, battles and killings of strange creatures as they journey to Black Mesa in search of a magic branch for Wolf. This branch grows and becomes a bush when needed to hide behind and turns into a weapon during a battle. The story will be fully color illustrated. The whole point is to distribute it to key personnel in the film industry. It would make a great animated Feature Film. That will be the ultimate goal after publication. So let's get started on our journey. Come be creative with me! The manuscript, art illustrations, copyright are completed. So let us take the next step together.

Yes, they are. 'Slaughterhouse' is a chop, chop, horror film and 'The Arrival' is a Science Fiction. Both were produced in and around San Diego County, CA. I was the Assistant to the Producer, Entertainment Attorney Ron Matonek, American Artist, Inc.
I did all of them
Yes, I did the research. I read a lot of books on the Hopi culture and books on the topography and locations. I researched what type of plants could found during the 'The Kids' journey. No I am not Hopi. I have a Cherokee heritage.
