Wi-Moto Nyoka is a writer, performer, and transmedia artist. Her favorite genres are horror and science-fiction. Her story “Luz” is featured in the Midnight & Indigo Speculative issue. (Alan Greenstein of Support Our #creatives has worked with Wi-Moto on some of her projects, such as the anthology series “Cold Sweat” and her podcast “Black Women Are Scary” ).
Magic is about love but when Luz Santiago’s love drives her to vengeance, no one in her city is safe.“Luz,” from Midnight & Indigo
This story is a perfect example of Wi-Moto’s preferred genres as mentioned above. The story lays out Luz’ definition of “loving enough” and how she tries to show it. Luz takes action when she learns her mother’s grave will be relocated due to construction. The action at first appears to be quite limited as she tries to bring her mom back to life. But things quickly get out of control as Luz displays her true way of “loving enough.”
