617: “Donna or Tara” by Julia Benally


A story that takes place on an ill fated family road trip, this week’s tale will make you realize even your worst road trips were never this bad. Deep in the desert, dark things await the Carter Family, from both without and within.

A modern tale with traditional Native American elements interwoven, you’ll find much to fear on this dark trip.

About the Author:

Julia Benally, on one dark and stormy night (seriously) was born to the Bear Clan of the White Mountain Apache Tribe.

She discovered my love of story telling at a very young age and then she put the stories to paper. She loves to cross stitch, swing her nun-chucks (even when she hits myself), sing, hunt and fish. She makes other people eat the fish mind you. She loves making apple pie, especially from her own trees outside.

Julia has been featured in Sanitarium Magazine, Snapping Twig Magazine and A Shadow of Autumn Anthology.
