Join us for a discussion with Oklahoma true crime author, Faith Phillips.
About the Author:
Faith Phillips is a Cherokee novelist, screenwriter, and producer. She created the sub-genre known as Okie Noir. Her third book, “Now I Lay Me Down” explored the bizarre details of the 2008 Weleetka murders. That true crime novel was featured on Oxygen Network’s true crime series, “Killer Relationship” and is now in development as a narrative feature film. Phillips most recently executive produced a four part docu-series streaming on Fox Nation, “The Girl Scout Murders”. Faith’s writing conveys a unique perspective on the lives of people existing in a land populated by migrants, outlaws, and survivors of attempted genocide. Her screenplays are designed to deliver the magical realism of life’s grievous and joyful existence in the Cherokee Nation and Oklahoma, with a healthy dose of humor.
