About Jerriann Law

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.

Jerriann Wayahowl Law pieced together a fine work of fiction in Red Slippers; a bit of a Ghost Story with just a hint of a thriller telling three different perspectives over a simple pair of shoes setting on a porch. This is truly worth reading; if you love a great suspense story then Red Slippers is the story for you. I gave it a well deserved 5 Stars, Author JD Couch.

If I had been a child, this would have been the kind of story that would have set my intrigue going, an inanimate object with some kind of power attached. As usual, I found the author's choice of wording quirky, middle American, but I guess that's only my own European sensibility; being unaccustomed to it. I don't know much about children's choices today, or what age group this might appeal to, so perhaps not best qualified to comment. Endearing and humorous, perhaps with a latter day innocence and written simply enough for an older 'younger' child to follow on their own.
