I’m a regionalist Native American writer of literary fiction, interested in capturing intertribal, transnational, and multicultural aspects within two tribally specific communities: Tahlequah and Lawton, Oklahoma. I was raised inside these tribal circles and continue to reside there today. I’m a citizen of Cherokee Nation and the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma from my mother (Hokeah and Stopp families), and I have Chicanx heritage from my father (Chavez family) who emigrated from Aldama, Chihuahua, Mexico.
