When an archaeology student excavates the final layer of debris filling an ancient pueblo room, she dramatically and unexpectedly exposes a sacred kiva lying below. The sinister events that follow, including a murder, hurl the young Graciella into a vortex of dangers from both past and present. With the help of an Apache detective investigating the murder, she attempts to escape from haunting forces that seek to destroy her, while treading a serpentine path that crosses the line between myth and reality. This tale of a prehistoric pueblo and its living descendents confronts one of humankind’s most ancient questions: can the past reach into the present and can the present influence what happened long ago?

How do we find physical help for our spiritual quest? Could the structure of ancient kivas in the American Southwest offer a template for the human interface of that path? And what might nature, embedded in the kiva itself, reveal to us about our own belonging, no matter where or how we live? These are questions author and transpersonal therapist Robyn Bridges has explored for over thirty years, winding through the Rocky Mountains from Montana to Arizona while discovering the healing power of nature. From her own blessed and challenging life experiences, resulting in years of unplanned solitude, she has quested and found meaning, solace, and support from the divine, the human community, and the natural world. This Way to the Kiva chronicles that journey and its attendant discoveries.

In a troubled world, answers rarely come from where they are expected. The need for answers to save a troubled humanity forces Kidwell Brown and Aisha Sudda, two total strangers, into roles they never could have anticipated. Kidwell and her life-partner, Anna Montoya, live a quiet life in their mountain home until the day Kidwell is drawn to visit the ceremonial cave at Bandelier National Monument. Hundreds of miles away, Aisha Sudda Fletcher lives another quiet existence, along with her husband, Greg, until the day she is drawn to visit a garden beside a vandalized mosque. On that day, both Kidwell and Aisha are chosen. These humble women soon learn that the time of prophets has not yet passed. During mystical moments, each woman is given a message - "Desert Lightning has no power" to Kidwell, and "The scimitar has no edge," to Aisha. They each pass along the message as instructed, neither realizing they have predicted important moments in world history. Their mystical guides direct the women to "find their allies," and so the lives of Kidwell, Aisha, Anna and Greg are forever intertwined. They will face victory and exile, mystery and certainty. In the end the very nature of humanity proves to be the world in which they must fight and survive. As an unabashed advocate for the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered community in places were being different was dangerous, Kayt honed her skill in standing her ground and doing the right thing. Her entertaining and thought-provoking novels offer readers a rich banquet of characters, settings and scenarios that leave us both satisfied and wanting more. --- Best-selling author Anne Hillerman
