BLUE CORN WOMAN is a lesbian novel that cries for the blind raven, a story of handicap, abandonment, and revival.

BLUE CORN WOMAN animates the desert lesbians in the rugged Superstition Mountains of Arizona where the character of Blue Corn Woman operates her trading post to feed her and her two wolf-dogs, Peyote Two Buttons and Kachina Four Corners.

Played out in a seductive game of Desert Monopoly with life-size tokens of affection, Blue Corn Woman must pay attention to their contents to understand her journey.  She has a one-night stand with a mysterious Latino woman named Valentina Harmony posing as a sassy cowgirl.  Valentina rides off at sunset with her secrets tucked under her saddle.  It spurs Blue Corn Woman to search for Ms. Harmony.

Blue Corn Woman adopts a half-breed Navajo/Mexican orphan boy with fetal alcohol syndrome after she heals him from being lashed by the local gang.

BLUE CORN WOMAN is carved feminist/lesbian spirituality, a Kachina doll symbolizing two women who choose to share one blanket through life on a journey of reviving a pottery hermitage started in the 1960s by Ms. Harmony's grandmother, a homeless gyspy woman.

Women have begun showing up to work the clay.  The retirement-age group of women can't live on their social security benefits, so they are looking for ways to supplement their income.  At Mother Clay, her earning power depends on her mood.  Nothing is regimented and there are no time clocks to punch.  The clay days are based on the old calendar.
