Cheryl Diamond had an outlaw childhood. She is born to a domineering, abusive con artist father and beautiful but fragile mother on the run from the law. By age nine, she had lived in more than a dozen countries on five continents and assumed six identities as her parents evaded Interpol and other law enforcement agencies. While her family lived on the run, she would learn math on an abacus, train as an Olympic hopeful, practice Sikhism and then celebrate her bat mitzvah, come to terms with the disappearance of her brother, become a successful fashion model, and ultimately watch her unconventional yet close-knit family implode. Diamond’s unforgettable memoir, NOWHERE GIRL: A MEMOIR OF A FUGITIVE CHILDHOOD (Algonquin Books: June 15, 2021), is a story of childhood lost and adulthood found. With forged passports and midnight escapes, Diamond writes an amazing, interesting, and memorable memoir.

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.
