I spoke with author of “Straight Outta Tombstone, Coyote” Naomi Brett Rourke at the LA Times Festival of Books.
Naomi Brett Rourke is the pen name for the author, teacher, and theatre director living near the beach in Southern California’s South Bay. She has a wonderful husband, three wonderful children, three wonderful step-children, seven wonderful grandchildren, a wonderful cat, dog, and tortoise. Verily, life is pretty good.
When not writing, she can be found with a book in her hand, very often reading two or three at a time, with murder mysteries, crime, and horror being her favorites. Naomi loves all kinds of books, and her favorite authors are:Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Michael Crichton, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mary Stewart, Agatha Christie, Daphne Du Maurier, William Shakespeare, Harper Lee, and, just recently, Delia Owen and her lovely novel Where the Crawdad Sings.
As an author, Naomi has stories published in magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post, London’s Morpheus Tales, The Mature Years, the Young Adult journal Refractions, and the online magazines http://www.TriggerWarningShortStories.com, CulturedVultures.com, and Frontiertales.com. She has stories in multiple anthologies including Straight OuttaTombstone, a best-selling Weird West anthology, the Native American anthology Life on the Rez: Science Fiction and Fantasy Inspired by Life on America’s Indian Reservations, Brewed Awakenings 2, and Enter the Apocalypse. She is currently finished with one novel, working on two more, writing more short stories, and has a finished screenplay. You can sometime see her on TV, movies, and alsosee her in short films as the mother in FAMILY PHOTO (happy holidays!) and in the Halloween promo of helpyourselftv.com, which she also co-wrote. Her short screenplay for CryptTV, Evil Twin was suggested by her grandson, but he can’t watch it until he’s older.
