Prolific author J. Starkey-Saylor publishes fourth novel with MindStir Media publishers

J. Starkey-Saylor has released her latest novel Umatilla: Spirits and Heroes with book publisher MindStir Media.

Umatilla: Spirits and Heroes, penned by MindStir Media author J. Starkey-Saylor, recently landed in bookstores. At only 184 pages, the novel reads at a blistering pace and is packed with action.

From the back cover: Jamie, Charlie, and Star join their Uncle Max on a visit to the Umatilla Indian Reservation. They travel to Oregon to surprise Jamie’s parents on their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary and to attend the famous Pendleton Roundup… During their visit, they find themselves involved in poaching, murder, and rustling, as well as a three-hundred-year-old-lost treasure on the Oregon Coast. With the accidental uncovering of a drug ring just off the reservation, Jamie, and her entire family, find themselves targets of the perpetrators… Jamie’s mom and Uncle Max have a curious ability to understand and respect the ‘unexplained’ events in our world. One of these ‘unexplainable’ entities aids the FBI and the Umatilla tribal police in solving cases they find themselves working on together. Spirits and Heroes –or both? Who’s to know for sure?

Readers are raving about the author’s newest book. One Amazon reviewer said, “Love all four of her books… Highly recommend them … great story you can’t put down.”

Umatilla: Spirits and Heroes is available from MindStir Media at, and other fine retailers worldwide. Wholesale orders can be placed through Ingram. The softcover book retails for $14.99.
