La Chiripa

“A woman’s murder is the essence of the mundane.” The most maddening of crimes is surely child abduction. Yet, for five sane, beautiful years, Alma and young Pira have lived and laughed in their remote asylum high in the Mayan mountains, blessed by *la chiripa*, the stroke of luck--until the searchlight of chance flicks across their lives and sends a deadly signal to their oppressor.

About Kaimana Wolff

Kaimana Wolff, better known as Wolffy, is a writer of poetry, drama and fiction and leader of a small wolf-pack. She loves to travel, cook, and kick cancer’s ass all the way to the Underworld.

Kaimana’s pack consists of Lord Tyee, a rescued wolf-shepherd, and her genderqueer daughter, Katje van Loon (also known as Morag Spinner), as well as various humans acquired through a careful vetting process directed by the fur-person. There have been many wolf-dogs in the pack — seven, at last count, though not all at the same time — and each has made a contribution to the life and culture of the pack.

Throughout her insatiable loping around the planet, Wolffy has visited some exotic dens. Her Dutch family moved to Canada when she was three. Since then she’s jumped at every opportunity to see a new corner of the world. She and Kat have gone to South-East Asia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, various US states, Mexico, and Dominican Republic. Wolffy has also been to Nicaragua and plans on taking her daughter there, too.

At twelve, Kaimana wrote a “really terrible” novel called Flying Hooves. (Kaimana’s mother maintained the novel was wonderful.) Kaimana’s grandfather translated it into Dutch and it was published serially in the city of Harlingen’s newspaper. “I should have known then that I was a novelist,” she says.
