Published

on

Sandra Shaw Homer is an environmental activist, author, adventurer, and survivor.
Homer, a victim of incest, has suffered from depression and currently has COPD. She tells her
inspiring life story in an engaging memoir, Evelio’s Garden, that is partly a defense of nature
and partly a powerful human interest story.
The international traveler who once saw the world for 49 days from the vantage point of a cargo
freighter, was born and raised in Philadelphia. She relocated to Costa Rica 30 years ago.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell, Homer has published her poetry and
been interviewed on several podcasts, including that of Lisa Davis’s regional NPR program, Talk
Healthy Today.
She has lived in Costa Rica for the past three decades, where she has taught languages and
worked as a translator. For several years she penned a regularly published column, Local Color,
for the English-language weekly, The Tico Times.
Homer is the author of three other books: Letters From The Pacific: 49 Days on a Cargo Ship,
Journey to the Joie de Vivre, and The Magnificent Dr. Wao.

About the author:
Darius Kamali is a former analyst with the State Department supported International Monitor Institute, the visual evidence wing for several tribunals on war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. He transitioned to political documentary, then to television and feature animation producing in Hollywood, as executive producer on a number of movies. Recently the global pandemic provided the opportunity and catalyst for Kamali to return to his roots and his passion with two genre-bending, timely, thought-provoking, and critically acclaimed books; Mistake of Identity and Dog Whistling Dixie Past the Graveyard.

The books explore and deconstructs identity politics, political correctness, cancel culture, wokeness, media propaganda, and the role of individual consciousness in our broken political discourse. As both human rights activist and filmmaker Kamali brings a singular insiders perspective to his radical, contrarian, and controversial views that transcend the traditional right/left divide and evade easy categorization.

Successful Historian-Turned-Critically-Acclaimed-Novelist
Releases Suspenseful Mystery Thriller Featuring A Strong
Female Detective That’s Set In A Mexican Resort Town

"Murder at the Olympiad is a murder mystery that embraces
social, political, and psychological tensions between two
nations, creating a multifaceted read that is enlightening and
gripping on more than one level.”
–Midwest Book Review

“A deftly plotted mystery…”
–Kirkus Reviews
"Author Gilbert is a writer skilled at exploring internal angst
and postulating potential suspects and motives….As in most
good mysteries, readers are left to determine just how much of
the information being conveyed is of significance or mere
subterfuge."
–The US Review of Books

Thirty-five years ago, James Gilbert’s book was named as a notable book of the year by The New
York Times. That was for a book on history by the noted historian. Now he is at it again, this time
with a suspenseful thriller that reveals a murder mystery that will keep readers guessing – and on
the edge of their seats.
Murder at the Olympiad, his fourth novel and 16 th book, is the second of a series with Amanda
Pennyworth as an amateur detective. “I enjoy not only writing about history, but creating whole
new worlds in my books,” says Gilbert. “I especially liked drawing Amanda out of nothing.”
Gilbert is available to discuss the following:
 How the main character’s search for a killer of a young American leads her to some very
unpleasant truths about the Foreign Service in which she serves.
 Why Mexico is the perfect setting for a secret underworld to operate in his novel.
 How he fashioned his heroine detective in this novel, even though most detective stories
feature a male lead.
 How he transformed stories from history into imaginative tales of fiction.
 Trends in today’s mystery thriller genre.
 Why a historian is perfectly qualified to share made-up tales.
 What is fascinating about certain time periods in American history, from the Civil War
and World War I, to the Spanish Flu and the cultural era of the 1950s.
