*A Quick Read for Poetry Lovers*
I enjoyed the complex emotions and thoughts in the poems. However, I would have had a greater enjoyment of the pictures painted by the words if the verses had been longer.
The poet's choice to used a blank verse style, sometimes with rhyming, gave it a lyrical sense. The rhetoric was impressive, adding strength to his voice. I found it reminiscent of piece I'd read while in high school - pieces that developed my love for poetry.
I liked Sonnet 17 (Peace). Ir really resonated with me. The strong themes in most of Ronald Kihali's work encouraged community and love. The contrast of light and dark... the desire to be better than we are and saved from the shadows of misery were nicely represented in The Arm That Ought to Rule.
If you love poetry, this is a book for you!

Wolf is a book for those who believe in true love and sacrifice for that
one particular person they love. To love someone so much you are willing to die
for them to ensure their safety. Lone
Wolf unfolds in the rough time of the 1860s, in the wilderness of Montana,
which had not been tamed as of yet. It was a time when people's lives were lived
in the harshest elements and death was a reality.
·The story unfolds
telling how Britt McCormick, who was sixteen at the time, was found stranded,
lonely and helpless by the Cheyenne Indians, who took him in after his family
had died. Chief Running Fox, found Britt to be a fascinating child and gave him
the name of Lone
Wolf. Running Fox saw a spirit in Lone
Wolf's eyes, unlike any he had ever seen before. He knew this child
possessed strong medicine inside him and was destined for great things.
·Because of this, he
Wolf home to his daughter Fawn to take care of and teach. Fawn, which was
only eighteen at the time, and recently widowed herself, was very displeased
with her father for dropping this white man off on her. She had always been
taught to hate the white man, and now her father is asking her to take care
·However, as time went
on, she grew very close to Lone
Wolf, and he filled a void in her heart which had been empty for some time.
Wolf is a book about love. It tells the story of how love can break down
all fear, especially when the one you love is in trouble. It shows the
sacrifices one may have to make to keep those close to your heart safe.
·It also points out love is not something that is easily
received, but instead something you must earn from another person. Lone
Wolf proves people from different parts of the world and even customs can
come together and be euphoric with each other.
·The remarkable part of this novel is, it makes you realize
you should never take what you have for granted because as fate has it, it
might not be here tomorrow. Love is a very mysterious thing, but as Lone
Wolf found out himself when you lose the one you love, that particular
person who was the only reason you woke up each day, the void that person
leaves in your heart will be so big it will seem impossible to fill.
is the main character?
·Lone Wolf (Britt McCormick)/Fawn
did the story come to you?
·Wow! First off I want
to say I love writing romance. Being I have Native American in me, I like to
incorporate the Native culture into my stories whenever I am in a situation
where I can do so.
Wolf novels were the first romance novels I released. The stories came so
easy to write, and the characters just came alive for me as the story unfolded
on paper. The character Lone
Wolf was exceptionally easy to create because I brought him alive by
stepping into his shoes. He talks, thinks and acts like me in many ways.
·Here of late, I have written many novels in the western
genre, but my heart feels at ease writing romance type stories. I do love to
write stories set in the 1800s because I believe it was a more intriguing and
straightforward period of our history.
you have to research for this novel, and if so, why?
·Yes, I did do some research. When including Native American
culture in your story it is essential to bring it alive for the reader by being
as accurate about what you're describing. I also strive hard to make sure I
describe the surroundings my story is unfolding in, such as the mountains, the
trees, the proper type of trees for that area the story is taking place in.
What type of plants, animals, and insects that there were in that region. My
favorite author was Louis L'amour and
what I learned from reading his novels was how to be descriptive and detailed.
·I try hard to write
in a simple manner because I believe it makes the storyfeel real life for the
reader, but at the same time I get detailed in describing what I see, hear,
smell and yes what the character is doing. All this adds up to one thing, and
that is the reader quickly finds themselves becoming one of the characters of
the story. In many of my reviews, the readers say the story hooked them to the
point they could not put the book.
you did research, what do you think surprised you most to learn, and why?
·I am surprised every time I pick up a non-fiction book. It's
a learning experience to read about things you usually don't think about.
ØIs your protagonist anything like you,
yes, then how?
Wolf was a caring character who believed
women should always be respected as well as protected at all cost from harm. I
guess that is just the old fashion upbringing in me
made you write this character; were they based on a real person or something
that inspired you?
üWhat should readers
know about this character?
Wolf was a strong character who was
polite and had Fawns best interest in his heart at all times. He was loving,
and he wanted nothing more than to earn her love and please her.
oFawn, was so beautiful on the outside but even better she
was beautiful on the inside, and her character was that of a strong woman.
üWhy is this
character important to you?
oI think in Lone
Wolf's aspect I would like to tell the
men chivalry, love, respect is a good thing in a relationship.
oAs it relates to Fawn, I guess I was expressing it was
okay to be beautiful and strong.
you consider the main character of your story to be good or bad, and why?
the objective of your character?
·To earn his place within the Cheyenne village while
protecting the one he loved (Fawn) and the other women of the tribe.
anything you specifically want readers to know about this piece of work?
there a particular idea or morale you are trying to convey?
·A I guess the moral of the Lone
Wolf series is love is earned not just given.
yes, then why did you chose it?
oI believe in some
aspects life has gotten too busy for society. It seems like today there is not
enough taught to children about respect for women and chivalry. To me, it seems
we need to get back to some of the old fashion teachings about how two people
should treat each other that are in a relationship.
