Overview


Shawanadese was the name bestowed on her when she was born into the prehistoric Anasazi tribe. Her fate seemed much like that of any other young girl until her magical powers began to erupt at the dawning of womanhood. It was then that a sacred name--Coyote Woman--was granted to her, a name that would come to identify her as a high priestess and draw the lustful and the faithful to her side. No one could have imagined the mystical charms of the high priestess, and nobody could have expected the force of attraction that would draw many men into her life. Shawanadese ignited a passion within the Mayan prince, the fiery rebel and the young warrior, and she engages in an epic struggle to defeat the sinister ways of man while maintaining her authority as the high priestess in the canyon of Chaco.

Meet the Author


Born in 1941, Judith Redman Robbins, then Judith Redman Breme, was raised in Dover, Delaware, except for the summers, which she spent in southern Delaware in Rehoboth Beach. She attended the University of Delaware on scholarship where she earned a bachelors degree in Music Education, majoring in voice. She is also an honorary graduate of the Settlement School of Music in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She went on to earn her bachelors plus 30 in Special Education. Her first marriage produced two wonderful boys, David and Jonathan, the older of the two owns and runs his own successful business in Florida, and the younger writes, sings, and arranges music for the Discovery Channel. Judith's hobbies include all aspects of music: singing, dancing, and playing the keyboard. She also enjoys gardening, walking, researching, and an educational, historical, or pre-historical book. During the last twenty years, she has traveled extensively, both in the U.S. and abroad. In 1986, an Indian Holy Man advised her to go to Chaco Canyon in northwestern New Mexico. When she visited, she had a feeling of deja vu, which resulted in the inspiration to write her first three novels in that location. She spent the new two summers backpacking into remote places to locate Anasazi ruins, interviewing archaeologists, and doing on site archaeological digging. She also spent time with the Hopi and Navaho Indians, taking part in some of their ceremonials. After twenty-nine years of teaching music and only a month before retirement, having been informed by Richard Curtis Associates that she had a publisher, she turned to writing with a passion. COYOTE WOMAN, her first novel was closely followed by her second, SUN PRIESTESS, both taking place from 1054 to 1064 A.D. In December 2000, her third novel, MOON FIRE, was released. Judith is now working on her fourth novel which takes place in Crystal River, Fla. in the year 1000 A.D.

Read an Excerpt

Prologue

He stood on the butte observing the vast arid, untamed land, which was the center of his universe. He and his people, the Anasazi, considered themselves an integral part of nature. Viewing the six building complexes from the top of this sacred butte, he felt a surge of pride and more than that, a love for his people.

His name was Taweyah. He had been the founder of the holy school, which housed and educated any young people who desired more than an agricultural life. He had been the sun priest for the center of his culture for many season cycles, and was revered by his people.

On the evening of his birth, a star had appeared in the sky, a star half the size of the moon. Some of his people had been awed, and many had been frightened at the appearance of such a spectacular phenomenon. It was then that his mother had noticed his birthmark. On his inner thigh was a white star that offered a startling contrast to his light brown skin. The people knew then that he was destined for greatness.

During the time since the appearance of the "Great Star," many of his people had left their subterranean pit houses and replaced the old style homes with houses made of stone. It was a period of enlightenment. The six complexes of the cultural center were connected with roads that gradually connected many outlier stone dwellings. Ritual and ceremony provided meaning and solidarity to all.

Remembering these great changes, Taweyah prostrated himself on the living breathing stone. To Awonawilona, the creator and giver of life he prayed.

My words are as one

With the mountains, rocks, and trees,

One with my body

One with my heart.

All the Gods assistme

With supernatural power,

Day! Night! The Universe

All see me,

As one with this world.
