Western Memoir and Novels
Naida will address:
1. Why she broke her memoir into two parts;
2. How Mark Twain’s autobiography influenced her;
3. How to handle the problem of your children without resorting to Twain’s strategy of delaying publication for100 years.
Briefly Naida will explain how she marketed her books, including creating the Authors Booth at the State Fair with a fellow author.
Naida West, author of Eye of the Bear, River of Red Gold and Rest for the Wicked (California Gold Trilogy) as well as Murder on the Middle Fork and other books, has received copious praise from readers over the last 25 years. A common question they ask is: How could you portray people from the 1800s so vividly that readers feel they know them personally? Her most recent book, Daughter of the West, Part I, answers that question. Readers meet a host of farmers and ranchers who raised her in Idaho and Montana, including one who became the model of the most villainous character in River of Red Gold. Naida is now writing Part II.
