Jerriann Law

Biography

Jerriann Wayahowl Law co-authors on many projects with her writing partner JD Couch: as writing Duo, Windhawk and Snowhawk, penning chants voicing concerns on the world's ecological situation, social issues, and many themes we as Native Americans can pray to Creator for a better world resolution. Our mission is to take action; it is our desire to enlighten others and spur them into action, too, before it gets to a point of no return. We also use original songs and videos to further express in an audio/visual way these same concerns and themes; one person at a time can help spread the word to others they know: this world is our life support system; without it, we don't exist in an alive fashion. Living is a great thing, isn't it?
Being happy, feeling secure, having peace of mind to rest at night, knowing life will continue pleasantly for future generations; that's our hope for tomorrow. It is something we all have to work at, just like with any relationship you care about, but it's the one relationship many people take for granted, expecting others to handle it, while you have the benefits of enjoying it.
If you are eighteen or older, accept responsibility as an adult; it is you and your environment...make it the best you can; if we all do this, life will improve in every way for everyone. This world would then be a truly amazing place for us to call home.

  • Hiroko's Tale on July 22, 2012

    A romantic at heart and a lover of folktales the world over, this short story fills every need I have and i loved the classic 'princess seeks worthy lover for life partner' theme; beautiful Hiroko has turned down beaus offering riches; she seeks someone who truly loves her, something she senses none so far had for her. A fisherman, Akio loves her from afar and having little to offer, sets down and carves a Daruma doll; but he loses his confidence, thinking she would not want him he leaves the gift and goes away; when Hiroko finds it, she is overjoyed and part of her joy enters the doll and he comes alive, receiving an eye; later a storm brings destruction and Hiroko sets out to find his maker.Will he find Akio in time to save the lovely Haroko? Only if the Daruma can succeed, hindered by his small size and one eye it is nearly impossible with the storm's winds and debris in the way; but don't underestimate the power of love and fate. i loved its happy ending and the Haru-Dori birds that sing of this great love made this a story to be treasured.
  • The Curse of the Antiquus on Aug. 13, 2012

    The story caught my eye because of its theme and the title, and also because it was offered free; when reading it, it didn't satisfy my sense of having a full story on hand. It needs to be thought over much deeper and elaborated on each of the journal entries, as well as a stronger ending needs to be applied. I would also suggest the author needs to apply spell-check and just do an over all editing to improve the story. Also need to do more research for the setting and the history could be greatly improved. It could be so much more. I sensed the author's enthusiasm, and a strong desire to be an author, but this had a rushed feel, and that takes away from the enjoyment of the read.
  • Egypt's Light on Aug. 15, 2012

    I very much enjoyed this epic poem, which gave an accurate, historical retelling of the rise and fall of Egypt, its gods and goddesses, myths, and triumphs as well as losses;it kept me rapt to the end, loved it.
  • Warped Mirrors on Sep. 10, 2012

    I found this story a delightful read; very funny as well as unusual theme; have never read anything quite like it before. The characterizations are well rounded, visual persons and the dialogue quite believable; nothing seemed forced between speakers. It was a visual fun romp of a young man's visit to a friend's huge house over the weekend; set in beautiful Scotland, the homeland of the author, so he has the ability to draw off memory, and nothing enhances the visibility of a setting like describing something the author knows for himself. It is a weird story, based on traditional themes of good verses evil, of youth verses maturity, of first love and its effects on the person in love; of time and space dysfunction;of the battle between families; of how fathers are like sons and sons like fathers, even if they might not wish to be; how we can or we can't change the way things are...some things are set in stone and other things are malleable; just knowing the difference and such a thing as what this mysterious Mayan game board could do might just be a reality somewhere...but for sure it was a quite devastating one for Julian. Loved the story; will enjoy reading it many times, like i do all my favorite authors.
  • Prickly Scots Pt I on Sep. 23, 2012

    If you ever have wondered what Scotland does on New Year's eve, this is going to surprise the heck out of you, because this story focuses on a New Year's eve and an event most unusual that has been reoccuring somewhere in the world every few years, spotlighting an area in blue...but until Scotland is highlighted, those other times just didn't quite cut it. From its unusual beginning, to a wide array of not quite perfect people and their dysfunctional existences, this story covers several genres...mystery, science fiction, fantasy, humor at its most quirky, settings that are literally out of this world, and how does the author manage to get the reader thinking it's going to be one way only to jerk the rug right out from under you? never take anything for granted, but yes, it all ties together and nothing is here that is not crucial to the events. Plus when the people speak you hear them in their own Gaelic brogue, which adds to the originality of this wonderful tale.
  • Prickly Scots Pts I & II on Sep. 23, 2012

    This is the complete epic tale of Archie and his friends, covering both Part 1 and Part 2. If you ever have wondered what Scotland does on New Year's eve, this is going to surprise the heck out of you, because this story focuses on a New Year's eve and an event most unusual that has been reoccuring somewhere in the world every few years, spotlighting an area in blue...but until Scotland is highlighted, those other times just didn't quite cut it. From its unusual beginning, to a wide array of not quite perfect people and their dysfunctional existences, this story covers several genres...mystery, science fiction, fantasy, humor at its most quirky, settings that are literally out of this world, and how does the author manage to get the reader thinking it's going to be one way only to jerk the rug right out from under you? never take anything for granted, but yes, it all ties together and nothing is here that is not crucial to the events. Plus when the people speak you hear them in their own Gaelic brogue, which adds to the originality of this wonderful tale. In Part 2, the setting takes certain characters into the past, and where you knew the people to be a certain way, suddenly you see them in a totally new light, as the story ties together the strings left hanging and you finally understand whatever had been puzzling you. Great imagination at work, and whatever could have been taken dead serious is poked fun at and brings gale after gale of chuckles, guffaws and outright 'come on, really?' outbursts. You'll see this in your mind and be enchanted; and characters you'll love to hate, in the end you will admire and know they had to be there. It's a brilliant imagery, i for one, love it.
  • Reacquaintance on Oct. 27, 2012

    i enjoyed that you obviously did a lot of research to get the story you have, it has a lot of technical plot line threaded throughout it. i enjoyed the part where you explained about the alphabet and the cute owl pictures were quite fun. the cover says erotic story but its not a regular erotica between a man and woman, there is a distanced emotional tension that lacked a sense of real love. At least that is what it was for me as a reader,but maybe in that world that's the best they can do. it was hard to buy into who these people were supposed to have been over all those centuries...and especially that they were living and acting in the manner this story portrayed. Still I rate this on a higher scale, because it was crafted as well as the author could and i'm thinking it wasn't an easy work to write; thanks for the free read.
  • A Heartbeat, A Death Note on Dec. 14, 2012

    a short collection of poems yearning for one who the lover hopes is the true love, viewed idealistically and with a hesitation for fear of rejection or change that might spoil what is perceived as a relationship of some standing,so with a reserve there is a seeming withdrawal when the ideal actually comes over and is not responded to but left standing outside in the snow...pained feelings appear in the evident slashes on arms of the object of desire, and with empathy the lover wishes to take that pain upon himself, but there is little hope for this pair of lovers who see death as the ultimate means to seal their love for eternity.
  • Dangerous Times on Jan. 19, 2013

    racy, full of action, characters sometimes blend into each other as it switches back and forth between them, and the pace is so fast it was hard to keep up with who was doing what...not really my cup of tea.
  • Ramblings of a tired mind: Poems on Jan. 19, 2013

    poems were visual, word choices picturesque... verses such as 5 that went "Surrender to the Fire of Love's saving Grace and fill your heart with Desire and Love's immortal Face." it was full of such beauty...although short in length it made up for in internal body.
  • The Hairdresser - Reversal of Fortune on July 08, 2013

    Jens is a 'pretty boy' and he knows how to use his looks to his advantage; but he is much more than what outwardly shows. He is a complex character and not a stupid one; he's smart and he has plans and he knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. He keeps his true feelings to himself and 'works' others with such a degree of panache that he comes across as the coolest fella ever to grace the insides of an eBook's covers. The other characters each have their own quirks and you either love them or hate them, but they all have purpose and that hinges on Jens's relationship with them. There are twists, and horror within this tale...and a large amount of humour that pops up in exactly the perfect relief position. This author is a master of Satire. You're in for a read you'll think about for days to come.
  • The Hairdresser - Seeing Red on July 10, 2013

    Set in Vancouver...the first view Jennyfer gets of the city is from the back of a stolen truck as she arrives there stoned. A fish out of water, she can’t help but admire the place... and indeed the descriptiveness of this Canadian city certainly helped fuel my desire to see it too. She also tells of the city's benefits as well as its seedier side as she goes underground, finally taking a job as a hairdresser… well… lets just say… of sorts anyway - but still, maybe a step up from what she had been doing – of which she has quite the unique descriptions; her sleazy past existence becoming the focus of her astounding memoirs and a tribute to an unlikely ally penned amid a sad and desolate situation - which was very touching in its own way! Jennyfer's mind doesn't operate the same way as most people though. She's tough, rough, thick-skinned and straight to the point - which usually has a sexual innuendo flare added for good measure. She just can’t help it. But that's Jennyfer, and you wanna hate her for it, but ya just can’t - at least I couldn’t. I kinda found myself liking her... she really means well, and sadly, could’ve been so much more in life… and, anyway, can she really help it if she's a walking time-bomb? Bless her heart! I found SP Mount’s characterization and humor inimitable, quite a few gems here that both delighted and kinda appalled me simultaneously, but I have to say, clever in their execution, and no doubt the emotion evoked was entirely intended as the author pushes limits in both sexual situations and political incorrectness. I really didn’t know what to expect next! But these are counteracted by a quick-witted remark from Jennyfer who could care less about anything at all, and that, strangely enough, seemed to make it all kinda acceptable - probably because it all comes from she herself. Enjoyed this a lot and gotta add mention of the great covers on the hairdresser series, extra bonus there.
  • A Steampunk Valentine on July 10, 2013

    Several stories and poetry in this collection on the theme of steampunk and Valentine's Day; authors were on a sliding scale of expertise, ranging from first-timers to a couple with a real knack for the genre. I noticed some typographical errors, but because of the better stories, I'm rating this 4 stars, because the better stories deserve it. Thank you for the free copy.
  • Skippy Jack Joe on July 20, 2013

    I enjoyed this. I've seen such homeless people here in America. Some of them with mental issues, and so they have grandiose ideas of just what they plan on doing with their finds. It accomplished what you wanted, I think. He seemed quite vital and breathing true, good job. 5 stars. One thing...your author friend you mention; you should provide a link to his page or that of the book you mention; it would be such a help to readers who actually do want to check out what you reference.
  • The Curiosity on July 20, 2013

    As I read, I got the image of slug like creatures, something I abhor and I read that Robert E. Howard also had an aversion to the critters. Indeed, he was lucky not to have awaken to find silver mucous tracks criss-crossing his bed and sticky goo in his hair. Lucky for you to have gotten it published previously. Lovecraft would have liked it, I think.
