Harding's Newest Historical Fiction Release Reveals Cruel Past of America's Founding
by BWW News Desk - Jun 6, 2014

David-Michael Harding weaves his admiration of Native American culture and history in his newest release, 'Losing St. Christopher' (ISBN 978-0985728526). While technically a work of fiction, Harding's novel builds on a factual base in order to educate readers about a unique period in history when one nation was born and another nearly died. In 1953 Albert Speer, Germany's Minister of Armaments & War Production during World War II, wrote from his prison cell in Berlin regarding the genocide of the American Indian. The Nazis' study of the treatment and eradication of American Indians was an element in the plan for the 'Final Solution.' Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Adolf Eichmann, and others who administered the Nazi Holocaust had looked to the Indian Removal Act of 1830 and the subsequent actions of the United States Government as the blueprint for annihilation of a people, a culture, and a way of life. In 'Losing St. Christopher,' Totsuhwa, the revered shaman of the Cherokee Nation, struggles against the assimilation of his people into the white world of men he sees as invaders. The colonists, along with Cherokee who are trying to bridge both worlds, see him as a barbarous threat. When Totsuhwa's visions show him the outcome, it is as black as his deep set haunting eyes. Chancellor, his son, takes a white wife following study at a missionary school and the shaman's fears seem realized. Conflicts between cultures and within the family erupt when Totsuhwa's only grandchild is forced onto the Trail of Tears. In the chase that follows, an estranged love fights to stem the ugly flow of racism that is moving in two directions. With its historical basis and fictional storyline, 'Losing St. Christopher' will educate readers while entertaining them with a story of culture, inner conflict and the evolution of a nation. Harding hopes his novel will create an impact on readers and shed light on a lost, forgotten, and dark page of our history. Losing St. Christopher is available for sale online at, Barnes and, and everywhere fine books are sold. The novel is the sequel to the critically acclaimed, Cherokee Talisman. 'Cherokee Talisman brings to life characters from our history and through a flare for fiction and historical research, Harding tells their story. Cherokees that might be painted by racist misconceptions as blood thirsty savages are humanized by Harding, making them heroes of a very real time. History is written by the victorious, but when almost forgotten historical characters are brought to life they are preserved for the ages, and in this preservation David-Michael Harding has succeeded.' - Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker. About the Author: David-Michael Harding is a life-long writer whose novel, How Angels Die, has received critical acclaim. A former semi-professional football player, his writing is hard hitting and passionate. He holds a master's degree in education and is an adjunct professor of writing. His respect and admiration for Native American culture inspired this novel. Most of his days are spent writing from the cockpit of his sailboat, Pegasus, somewhere off the Nature Coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico.

BWW Interviews: Shunya Series - Directors Talk JUNGLE BOOK
by Katricia Lang - Jul 30, 2014

Shunya Theatre's so nice, I interviewed them twice. Or rather, I interviewed them once and liked talking to the cast and crew so much that I decided to cut the interview into a four part series. In this installment, (numero uno) I talk to Directors Sara Kumar and Sunny Sinha. The partners in crime answer the question, 'How real is Shunya Theatre's production of THE JUNGLE BOOK?' Spoiler alert: It's really real. If you doubt their realness, take a look at Director Sunny Sinha's finger gun. He's not playing with y'all. Co-director (and Shunya Artistic Director) Sara Kumar's finger gun could use some work. So, it is entirely possible that she is playing with y'all. But I wouldn't risk it. (more...)
