Diana Holguin-Balogh, author of “Rosary Without Beads.”

Diana Holguin-Balogh spent childhood Fourth of Julys at Billy the Kid Days in Lincoln, New Mexico. She found historical fiction possibilities fascinating — thus the catalyst for “Rosary without Beads.” She says: “On my first exploratory library run of ‘Billy the Kid,’ 70 books surfaced instantaneously. I asked myself, ‘Does the world need another book on Billy?’ However, most all the listings were academic versions by male historians on the Kid’s life. I knew my story had to be completely different. Thus the voice of a Mexican sheepherder’s daughter who tells a back hills rendition from the powerless locals caught in the bloodiest war in New Mexico’s history.”
