Cynbel & Zothia is his first novel. At the moment he is working on his second novel, a historical, cultural, Christian, prophetic fiction about Haiti’s visionary future entitled, “TURMOIL IN HIGH LAND?”.
Cynbel & Zothia tells the story of two young people engaged in a unique but emblematic love affair. Here is an extraordinary garden, a mysterious one nurtured by Cynthia’s great, great grandmother Solange, which was anointed by God and is now sustained by her family.

A remarkable, surprising and inspiring tale…
