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.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in South central Kentucky, but at an early age, my family moved quite a bit because my father worked as a lineman. When I was seven, we moved first to Missouri and then to Louisiana; and I love New Orleans, to this day. We later moved back to Kentucky, to several small towns, and even to Indianapolis, which I couldn't help but compare to New Orleans and how strikingly different they were. Later, we returned to Kentucky, took a jaunt into Tennessee and then back to Kentucky to stay. All of this by my seventh grade.
And it was during the summer, between the seventh and eighth grade that my reading became voracious. I read pretty much everything I could get my hands on; every genre there was came into my hands and I devoured them with more gusto than any sweets. Reading was a pleasant past-time and my favorite thing to do. I also began writing poetry and short stories about this time, for myself, not as a school project.
Being a southern girl, I feel most comfortable writing about the south, and so most of my writing is set in the south.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Eyes of the Owl, a Jack Bane Supernatural Mystery is the first in a series I'm writing with my partner JD Couch. This should be available in the next few weeks. It is about a young man, Jack Bane who returns home after a bad day at work to find the apparitions of three missing girls in his living room. They give him a sign on how to locate their bodies and he calls his uncle Robert Crain who is the town's sheriff.
Jack's mother was also psychic and had worked for the police, but Jack didn't know this, since both his parents had perished in a car wreck when he was four. Also, he has a twin brother, Carl, whose life has been far different than Jack's, for he has been under the influence of the town's serial killer, and raised as his apprentice. Carl is also possessed by a demon owl who controls him and he has fought to be freed from this possession for many years
As the days pass by, other people go missing, and it is up to Jack's newly developed abilities, and the determination of Sheriff Crain and others on the Investigative team, Lt. Kyle Deerheart and his wife, Malinda Davis Deerheart, Detective Wayne Herrington, and two FBI agents, Jake Boyle and Maddie Stover to solve the disturbing murders plaguing the town of Gilkey, NC.

Sightings include an ominous Owl-man who leaves behind owl feathers as his calling card. Among the victims are the three girls, and twin boys, thus the killer is dubbed the Sibling Killer by the local news stations. Later, a man and his son are abducted, too; the boy also one of twins.
But another killer has been operating in the area for many years, a killer whose taste runs in young women. Are the crimes related, and if so, how?

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
