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...

Although I am officially on hiatus my mind keeps thinking and planning ahead.  I wonder how long it will be before I finally surrender to this "hiatus" and pick up one of my unfinished scripts to complete it?  But I have decided that once I return from Europe I shall go into pre production of the feature film "A Wound In Time". Pre production takes lots of planning so I will have time to showcase "The Grinder" and mount "Blood Makes The Red River Flow" Off Broadway for a limited run.  At least that's what my mind is telling me. In January I will officially end my hiatus and we shall see what we have... Stay tuned.

I am on a self imposed hiatus from all my creative dabblings until January.  After producing and directing 2 projects every year for the past three years using my own resources I must regroup and deal with "me".  Thus, I can return with sleeves rolled up and ready to deal with the many things I have planned.  In my hunger for all that is cultural and artistic I plan on heading over to Italy and maybe take a peek at France to recharge my batteries.  What's on the menu when I return?

I really want to begin a program of arts and cultural immersion for our endangered Black and Latino males, where I would give them an opportunity at hands-on experience helping on productions as well as treat them to the theatre, museum, etc.  I also plan on showcasing "The Grinder", and go into pre-production of the feature film version of "A Wound In Time".  Looking to bring my Creole drama into the schools, have more dinner theatre productions, and eventually to the Off  Broadway stage.  And finally complete the two remaining plays of the trilogy "Women You Thought You Knew".
