A Teenage Cherokee Girl Tries to Save Herself and Her World

Get a free sample of my short story “The Zombies Attack at the Drive-In.” I didn’t know I had a zombie story in me. But I had spent the weekend listening to Sherman Alexie (Spokane) and Jess Walter’s podcast “A Tiny Sense of Accomplishment” and filmmaker Sterlin Harjo’s (Creek) “The Cuts.” While driving to school that next Monday I passed an abandoned Drive-in. As soon as I stopped the car, I wrote this story. That evening my husband sketched a few panels for me.
