I can't wait for you all to read my new short story collection, Godless but Loyal to Heaven (Enfield &Wizenty), which is out Sept. 20, 2012! You'll be seeing my classic characters like Snowbird, Torchy, and Stephanie--and you'll be meeting my new gladiator: Bear. :) Take care, Richard
GeneralMy official website is www.richardvancamp.org but MySpace is way more fun. I'm also going bonkers on Photobucket: http://s175.photobucket.com/albums/w158/richardvancamp/ and I also have a tree fort on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=717440286 Woot!
BooksI am the author of "The Lesser Blessed" (a novel), a collection of short stories, "Angel Wing Splash Pattern" and "The Moon of Letting Go", and two children's books with Cree artist George Littlechild: "A Man Called Raven" and "What's the Most Beautiful Thing You Know About Horses?" In 2008, every newborn baby in British Columbia received my children's book " Welcome Song for Baby: A Lullaby for Newborns." This baby book is published by Orca Book Publishers. Orca will also be publishing my new novel, "Blessing Wendy." Great news! "The Lesser Blessed" will soon be a film through First Generation Films. Woo hoo! I have two comics out with the Healthy Aboriginal Network: "Path of the Warrior" and "Kiss Me Deadly."
HeroesMy elders, Chief Dan George, Irene Sanderson, Melvin Graybear, Seraphine Evans, George Blondin, Albert Lightning, Snowbird Martin, Maria Brown, Larry Grant--to name a few, my friends, my family, my fellow storytellers and all my nieces and nephews...
