Book Title: Becoming
Subtitle: Then it hit me MMXX
Book Description: The second edition is an impressive (yet slightly controversial) creative non-fiction prose memoir by Native journalist and poet Trace L Hentz. Writing about growing up as an adoptee, a Lost Bird, a journalist-author-blogger, a grandma, and the Seven Fires Prophecy in modern times is her code. Writing about Indian Country and ongoing genocide usually gets someone’s head in a tizzy or butt in an uproar. I do that…." The author Trace L. Hentz (formerly DeMeyer) is award winning journalist.
Trace Hentz’s BECOMING: Then it Hit Me MMXX is a fierce uplifting hybrid memoir that is wholly unique to the award winning journalist’s lived experiences as a curious but traumatized child, as a young actor and rock musician traveling the states, as a wife and grandmother, and as a working writer-publisher-blogger. Weaving together true stories and conversations, Hentz addresses themes of opening her adoption, identity, family reunions, transformation, spirituality, a sense of home, and claiming an identity in her two worlds.
Becoming is about becoming the change… Writing about how she got the name Lethal Journalist and her foray into becoming a news editor, Terror Bunny is the story she tells her granddaughter Cami, and Butt Dancer is a chapter about birthdays and her “my bad” and so much more“ in over 20 true short stories. “…I used to be a rock singer, shop owner, trophy wife, Native history book junkie, journalist, radio show producer. That’s changed like titles change, names change. These days I create and make mosaic. Writing about Indian Country and ongoing genocide usually gets someone’s head in a tizzy or butt in an uproar. I do that….” The author Trace L. Hentz (formerly DeMeyer) is award winning journalist.
