Meet Janelle

I’m a free-lance novelist and playwright (Geronimo, Life on the Reservation). I was born and raised in Oklahoma, near the Ft. Sill Indian Reservation.

Featured Book: Geronimo's Laptop

Geronimo's Laptop

About the book:

Geronimo's Laptop is a historical fantasy in which I use a laptop to enable Geronimo to go backward and forward in Apache history. I am not a historian, but a novelist. This book will entertain young and old as it tells the history of Geronimo and the Apache people. Suitable for all. I hope you all get a chance to read it when it comes out. Geronimo's Laptop is an extension of the play, Geronimo, Life on the Reservation starring Rudy Ramos (High Chaparral, Yellowstone, and more) and directed by Steve Railsback. This play, in 2021, was recognized as one of The Los Angeles Times 19 Culture Picks.
