S Minsos has written three novels, preceded by two theoretical books. Coming soon: Weird Tit-for-tat: the game of our lives for ordinary people.
In her first book, non-fiction, she writes about manners and her theory of socialization. Culture clubs: the art of living together (Spotted Cow Press).
Her second book, also non-fiction, Weird Tit-for-tat: the game of our lives (Spotted Cow Press), is actually a prequel to Culture Clubs, illustrating how she believes culture clubs form and make manners. Manners and “mannering,” in the way Minsos refers to them, are much broader than Emily Post’s etiquette.
Her third book is historical fiction, Sky Walker Tehawennihárhos (Eschia Books)–a revised edition of Squire Davis and the Crazy River (Spotted Cow Press). The setting is southern Ontario. In 1845-46, Southern Ontario is part of the United Province of Canada, and known as Canada West.
Minsos’ second and third books continue the narrative of Squire Davis and Jennet Ferguson, Jeddah Golden and Nellah Blaize Golden. A host of peripheral characters inform the large canvas, and they are recorded at the beginning of each book.
In book two Sky Walker Tehawennihárhos: the Battle of Vinegar Hill (Dragon Hill Publishing), we meet another seminal character, Irish Bride Munny. The Irish Famine, the clearance of “coloureds” from the village of Brantford, starvation on the Six Nations Grand River settlement, and the clash between Haudenosaunee and the Grand River Navigation Company provide the historical moments.
Book three, Sky Walker Tehawennihárhos: Charter (DELC and Friesen Press), sets the stage in Indiana, Ontario. David Thompson and Ruthven Park and the Grand River Navigation Company provide the historical moments.
