One of the purposes of this book is to display the fact that the four Gospels agree together in all their details and reveal the guiding hand of an unseen author….. Combining the Gospels is certainly not new. Tatian’s Diatessaron in the second century being one of the first such attempts. But this combination is an attempt to interweave the four Gospels in such a way as to incorporate all the details into a single chronological story, without repeating any parts. In so doing, the Gospels hold together like the pieces of a stupendous jigsaw puzzle. The combination effect is both stereophonic and stereoscopic. — excerpts from book’s Preface

In my book, you will meet a little girl named Viola who ran from her past until she made a life-changing decision to stop running forever.
This is my story, from a crumbling apartment in Central Falls, Rhode Island, to the stage in New York City, and beyond. This is the path I took to finding my purpose but also my voice in a world that didn’t always see me.
As I wrote Finding Me, my eyes were open to the truth of how our stories are often not given close examination. We are forced to reinvent them to fit into a crazy, competitive, judgmental world. So I wrote this for anyone running through life untethered, desperate and clawing their way through murky memories, trying to get to some form of self-love. For anyone who needs reminding that a life worth living can only be born from radical honesty and the courage to shed facades and be . . . you.
Finding Me is a deep reflection, a promise, and a love letter of sorts to self. My hope is that my story will inspire you to light up your own life with creative expression and rediscover who you were before the world put a label on you.

Princess Nyilaak is an epic story of a unique Luo princess born and brought up against all odds as heir to the throne of her father, – Ruoth Kwanga. The essential patriarchal society does not know how to raise a woman into a leadership position, even though the ancestors command that they do so. So they try their best to turn her into a man – through some hilarious and sometimes really sad episodes.
Princess Nyilaak is a well researched story, rich in traditional Luo customs, taboos, rituals, norms and general way of life; right from birth of a child to the death and burial of important figures in society. The novel also explores the role of women as sisters, as mothers, as daughters, grand-daughters, mothers-in-law, grandmothers, and as widows in a society where the boy child is the key to a family’s genealogy with the girl child as problematic equation – to be married off as quickly as possible into another family.
The deep bond and symbiotic relationships that the people have with their gods and ancestors that intercede for them – symbolized by the presence of the sun in their daily lives, is clearly brought out through entertaining plotting.
Intrigues in the management of political leadership transitions are well illustrated through characters that come alive in the text, and through literary stylistic devices. These include but are not limited to vivid descriptions, proverbs, similes, metaphors, imagery, irony and biting satire. It is a must read for literature students and instructors, gender activists, anthropologists, political scientists, sociologists, historians, and the general reader.

Is Jesus who said he was?
Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?
What does all of the evidence point to–and what does it mean today?
