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...

Looking forward to taking a "breather" from writing, producing, and directing for the month of September after the performance of play #2 of my trilogy on Wednesday. In October I will begin revisions of play #3 and produce it late November/early December. Thus I would have fulfilled my goal of having each play workshopped before year's end in preparation for all three plays to go up in the same run,possibly Off Broadway early 2015. I hope to begin filming my feature end of this year as well, God willing.
