“One of us would finally end what had been started by the machayiwiw so many years ago. I would have to kill him. It was just that simple. I never thought I would want to kill anybody or anything, but maybe I never had anything worth killing for before.”
-Emmeline Rima Belrose, The Scarring (Spirit Warriors, Book 2) 

In the majestic beauty of a Montana summer, Emme and her friends celebrate her near-drowning survival and their defeat of the powerful evil spirit, the machayiwiw. But even as they rejoice, things are amiss. Emme watches helplessly as her family divides, and her friends struggle to hold their relationship together. Worse yet, the love-of-her life, Charlie, announces that he will move back to the reservation, without Emme. Different nightmares take over and Emme realizes she must fight and kill—or watch those she loves be killed. Friends from the reservation reach out to Emme and show her what evil can steal from her. Emme believes that evil can never break her bond with the Spirit Warriors or the love she shares with Charlie. Or can it?


Dream Cast

There is only one celebrity that I wrote a character for. That celebrity is *drumroll* BETTY WHITE

I adore her and I wrote the part of Esther White in the book for her. I realize that Betty is getting up there in years, so I started a tongue in cheek campaign to keep Betty White healthy. Here is the link on my blog-

Betty White’s twitter is @bettymwhite if you would like to join me in sending her best wishes for longevity.

I think Archie Hunt (Charlie’s Grandfather) should be played by Graham Greene from Dances with Wolves.

Emme’s Grandfather, Grandpa Ed, and his friend Oscar Hines should be played by Robert Duvall for Grandpa Ed and Tommy Lee Jones for Oscar Hines. Grandpa Ed will be around for the rest of the series and Oscar Hines will be in flashbacks. I think it would be cool to reunite the Lonesome Dove co-stars.

Scott Belrose, Emme’s father, well I’m kind of torn. I like Rick Schroder, but well would Brad Pitt just be too sexy for the part? Please say no! I really am wishing now!

Angelina Jolie would make a great Josephine Grayson. Might as well have the couple together on set.

I’m saving the kids for the last.

I think Emme, Charlie, Ollie, Bets, Lilly and Jack should all be portrayed by relative newcomers. I want them to be the character and not recognized for another part they played in a different movie or show. I did find these pictures of teenagers that remind me of the characters.

I would love to hear your ideas for these and other characters! Post them on my blog

About the Author-

Della was born in South Dakota and raised in the vastness and beauty of Montana on a farm. When she longed for the big city life, she moved to Texas where she attended college and received a PhD in nursing. When not nursing people back to health you can find Della huddled over her Mac writing the stories that have occupied her mind for so many years, or traveling with her best friends, the NOLA’s, riding bikes across the Golden Gate bridge or exploring botanical gardens. She is the proud mother of a champion triathlete, two aging dogs and 1 grand-cat. Della has admittedly confessed to her coffee addiction and swears that her two hour coffee crawl while on vacation in Seattle –was the best two hours of her life!
