Short Stories and Poems Capture Readers' Hearts in New Release by Berna Deane South, Published by Dog Ear Publishing

In Among the Feathered Warriors, an engaging book of short stories and poems, award-winning author Berna Deane South takes the reader on a journey through the human experience.

Indianapolis, IN, April 29, 2010 --( In this engaging book of short stories and poems, award-winning author Berna Deane South takes the reader on a journey through the human experience. It’s a tribute to her superb storytelling that in so few pages, South can tell a story whose characters will stay with readers long after they've finished reading about them. In Among the Feathered Warriors, published by Dog Ear Publishing, a child remembers the strange visitor who brought her dying mother comfort in the form of strange, beaded dolls during her last days, a woman confronts a religious zealot who comes to her door to talk about her 6-year old boy with a heart condition, a young boy tries to cope with his parents’ separation and a litter of hungry, newborn kittens, and much more.

In the tradition of revolutionary Southern writers like Flannery O’Connor and transformative poets like Anne Sexton, Berna Deane South’s work vibrates with impatient life. And like no one else, South’s voice opens hearts to a world people recognize as the honest shadow of their own, a world where everything is treasured but nothing is safe. The poetry and prose in Among the Feathered Warriors will resonate with readers long after they've finished the book.

Berna Deane South has received the Harcourt, Brace, and World Fellowship for the Novel at the University of Colorado Writer’s Conference, the Indiana University Foundation Scholarship for the Novel, the Indiana University Scholarship for Poetry, and the Indiana University Writer’s Conference Citation for superior work in progress in the Short Story. She is also the recipient of the Award of Excellence – Short Story from The Festival of Missouri Women in The Arts. In 2004, South received the Delaware Division of the Arts Individual Artist Fellow in Fiction Award.
