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...

Just notified that my Santeria mystery/thriller 'A Wound In Time" that I wrote, produced, and directed last year at Nuyorican Poets Cafe is one of the hundreds of Off Off Broadway Productions listed in the important archive Theatre World v67. The production and it's credits are now available nationwide to scholars, industry professionals, students, producers, and the Library of Congress.

"A Wound In Time" will return to the stage bigger and better in 2012 with some familiar faces as well as new ones. The new production will be top notch to be professional filmed for DVD distribution.
