My Zorro Stories
For a couple of years, I wrote several stories about my earliest childhood hero, Zorro. The only Zorro - Walt Disney's version. My other writing work could sometimes entangle me in historical research that could take away from the story. You didn't have to do that with Walt Disney's Zorro - well, you could if you wanted, and there are several masters of historical WD Zorro fiction out there (Sue Kite for one).
I used Zorro to escape from research - except from what I saw on the show and what I already knew about California history. Walt Disney's Zorro borrowed from different eras (even 1940s movie westerns when it came to women's garb and wandered into Abbott and Costello references one or two times - and it worked!). I wanted to get back to a sense of writing for entertainment and making sure the reader was still with me. I had a lot of fun with these stories.
These links will take you to the pages of Enmascarado, where there are many more stories about Walt Disney's Zorro, as well as poems and pictures. The site is a beautiful work by MaryAnn T. Beverly and Kay Long.
