Author and Tribal member Kaitlin Curtice uses words as a source of inspiration and grounding. In 2011, she began writing professionally, publishing her first book in 2017. Its success encouraged her to keep writing, and Curtice recently completed the first draft of her second book that plays on a sense of belonging and incorporates her viewpoints as a modern Christian and Native woman.
Linda Zook’s first novel tells the story of young doctor Joey Winters. Raised in Oklahoma City, she moves to rural Freeman, Oklahoma, after receiving her medical license to work for two years as part of the fictional Doctors for Rural Oklahoma Program.
