The author of seven romantic historical novels, the last four focused on Montana Blackfeet Indians, will be at Big Sky Books in Havre Tuesday afternoon. Karen Kay, who will have a few copies of her latest Avon Books novel, "Wolf Shadow's Promise," on hand for fans, said she plans to be at the store sometime after 3:30 or 4 p.m. on July 18.
The Los Angeles writer has made a pilgrimage to Browning each of the last four years, the first time following publication of her first Blackfeet Warrior tale, "Gray Hawk's Lady." She was in Browning two weeks ago attending the Indian Days Powwow and participating in a literacy project at The Blackfeet Nation H.E.L.P. Learning Center. She has been a regular contributor at the center run by Harold Dusty Bull and Tony Running Fisher in recent years.
Havre is among the stops she's making on an extended tour of Montana and other Western states promoting her latest book.
Kay and her husband, Paul Bailey, originally from Billings, honeymooned in Browning after their wedding two years ago.
Other titles in Karen Kay's romantic historical fiction collection include "Proud Wolf's Woman," "White Eagle's Touch," "Lakota Princess," "Lakota Surrender" and "Night Thunder's Bride."
Kay calls her books historical fiction and all seven revolve around Native American romance. Learn more about her life and her books, including photographs, at Kay's web site located at http://www.romance-central.com/KarenKay.
