ABOUT...

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...

AFTER THE STAGED READING OF MY LATEST PLAY AND DINNER THEATRE EVENT COULD AUDITIONS FOR THE FEATURE BE FAR BEHIND?

...Question I'm asking myself as I continue to create and happily build bridges.  The more my work is unveiled, the more bonds are formed.  I should take a breather before moving on to the next phase of bringing the feature film "A Wound In Time" to the world.  I had planned on working on a degree in Communication and Media othis Fall.  Being that I am ahead of the game in that subject and it is an online course, I don't think it will interfere with my projects.  I've filled out my application, written my essay, but have yet to submit it.  I've just been procrastinating.  In fact, I am looking forward to taking the course for self fulfillment more than for a degree.  

So I'm projecting auditions sometime in August or September and take it from there...  Oh yes.  I'll be mounting the showcase of my latest play, which will have a staged reading today, at some point this year as well.  Guerrilla tactics all the way!  Stay tuned.

ENTERTAINMENT PIONEER AND DEAR FRIEND HAROLD CROMER PASSES

I met legendary entertainer Harold Cromer in 1999 when I was a bartender on Broadway.  He held court at the famous Barrymore's watering hole and we shared many good times there.  He saw something special in me and always encouraged me to get back on the stage.  God am I gonna miss his impersonations and dirty jokes!  
Me and Harold in August of 2011

One thing I knew for sure was that Harold wanted to tell his story, and I am glad to see that his grand-daughter is taking on the task.
