”Absorbing and enlightening all the way to the last page”
stars

Escaping from poverty isn’t as easy as shaving and getting a job, the latter which isn’t easy at all. “Adventures of the Homeless” is about one man trying to free himself and his close friends from existence as vagrants and hobos. But there is a reason why they were in such a position in the first place, as their addictions and other problems soon sneak up behind them. A sad look into the experience of the poor, “Adventures of the Homeless” is absorbing and enlightening all the way to the last page.

Award Days of Laughter

 

Days of Laughter depicts some of the childhood experiences of many who lived in Guyana during the 1950s and 60s. The sequence of events in this narrative will not only bring back memories of the past, but it will also give today’s adolescents an opportunity to look back at the happenings of an earlier period.
While this book is intended to make you smile and reflect on some of the simple joys in life, it is also a gentle reminder of some of the games children played in Guyana, the stories they listened to and the toys they made. In an effort to preserve what many have experienced while growing up in Guyana, this simple story takes account of some well-liked birds, popular individuals in certain villages, some notable places to visit, as well as common Guyanese Creole to remind us of our homeland.

Read review:  

The True Self is a thoughtful, informative and inspiring book on mysticism, fiction, philosophy, spiritual beliefs and some practical realities of life. The True Self contains two inspiring stories which are a synthesis of fiction, mysticism, spiritual beliefs and some practical realities of life. In these stories about life in a bittersweet experience, readers will be taken on a spiritual journey as expressed through fictional characters who are struggling with the universal quest for understanding of self (Who am I? Why am I here? etc.) This book promotes human goodness, and can be used for meaningful family discussions on subjects pertaining to theology, statutory laws, and morality based on philosophical reasoning. These topics are carefully woven into the stories so as to encourage readers to think rationally, and to contemplate about their own personal experiences in life. ISBN#  0595191975
