A Summer in 1993 in Spanish Harlem finally reveals the secret past of Cuban-American cardiac nurse Negra Centron. A childhood secret torments the life and stifles the growth of a beautiful woman. The ancient religion of the Yoruba people of Nigeria, known as Regla de Ocha and Santeria in the Diaspora, is the engine behind this supernatural mystery thriller. This African-evolved religion, with its magic, is the backdrop for this tale of love, hate, deceit, betrayal, obsession, forgiveness, acceptance, and hope. Magic, ritual, and destiny are the threads unraveling this gripping, edgy, mystery/thriller.
Pressured by a suspicious mother, a strange bed-fellow, and an amorous co-worker, Negra battles to keep a childhood secret from unraveling while a restless spirit and the African gods seek justice...

Sunday was the staged reading of my latest play "Blood Makes The Red River Flow" which was inspired by my interviews of Louisiana Creoles 10 years ago while filming my documentary "The Descendants of Africa". The cast did a fantastic job with only 2rehearsals! Directing them was a joy! Now I will be editing the script and adapting it to screenplay as well. I will also be focusing on getting "A Wound In Time" on DVD to share with the world! LOL Stay tuned!
