About Heart of Diamonds

Heart of Diamonds CoverIn Heart of Diamonds, star TV reporter Valerie Grey risks her life—and her love—to expose a diamond smuggling scheme involving a celebrity televangelist, an African dictator, and possibly the White House. It happens while she’s on assignment in the Congo, where life itself is brutal and the censuring eyes of civilization have long been blinded.

I am a writer and photographer with an intense interest in Africa. I’ve been fortunate to travel over much of the globe, but nowhere have I been as intrigued by everything I experienced: the magnificent landscape, the fascinating animal life, the teeming cities and rustic villages, but most of all the earnestly striving people. The history of the continent is playing out before us in agonizing slowness, which has a magnetic effect on me as a writer.

In Heart of Diamonds, I explore the struggle to survive tragic personal loss against a backdrop of massive human tragedy. It’s a thriller, a romance, and a commentary on the human condition. Most of all, I hope, it’s a book you’ll want to read.
