Information about my work with Lakou Papiyon, Sister Dona, DLO DOUS and my book

Exciting New Review

What a thrill to see this beautiful review of my book today on Barnes and Noble! 

This is a book like no other I have read. It unites into an inspiring, cohesive and poetic whole a diversity of themes, experiences, information and emotions. Mary is a vulnerable yet confident, vibrant and, above all, heart-and-soul guide through her unusual life and her story of tragic loss and ultimate redemption. Readers of this book will not only be deeply moved, but learn more than they can imagine. 

Thanks so much whoever you are!


Happy Birthday Dad

Today would have been my father’s 97th birthday. I miss him so much. I used to feel like I was going nowhere trying to complete a mission he left unfinished when he was killed in 1990. Today I realize that publishing my book and working with Sister Dona  and Neite Decimus is not just following in his footsteps it’s giving me a reason to get up in the morning. My dad had a school in Haiti too. It’s been 27 years since he died. Will you help me honor him and his life’s work and support our collective work by making a tax deductible donation of $27 or $270 to help us re-open Sister Dona’s school? 100 homeless children are waiting to get an education, a bed and a meal.

The earthquake, the hurricane and Sister Dona’s political imprisonment left the school devastated and in nearly condemned condition. We need $10,000 for repairs, urgently. We’ll send you a book and/or some beautiful music as a thank you. We have a lot against us, but we are keeping our candles lit. We may be swimming upstream, but we are moving forward. Will you link here to help? Please, take a moment to make a change that will last a lifetime. Thanks so much.
