About the author:
Born of Indo-Guyanese parents who lived through the civil disturbances, Michelle and her sister were raised in the east end of Toronto where numerous nationalities intermingled, often raising the question of what makes a Canadian and what claims first generation Canadians have on their cultures of heritage. As the first Canadian in an extended immigrant family saturated by traditions, culture and religion, Michelle explores these topics and delivers a unique perspective on Guyana's fragmentation in the first of her novels.

Michelle has earned a Bachelors specializing in English literature from the University of Toronto and currently lives in Toronto Canada with her husband, her daughter, and stepdaughter.

Oka
 

Authored by Michelle N Persaud

British and Spanish monarchs once sent their best explorers in search of fabled South American gold. Hundreds of years later, evidence of their explorations lands into the hands of an anthropology Professor, but when the ancient coin is stolen and gold fever drives opportunists to kidnapping and murder, his daughter Oka is forced to guide her kidnappers through the jungle interior to the mythical city of gold. Faced with the same mortal race which once entwined Sir Walter Raleigh and Antonio de Berreo, Oka relies on her wits and her father's lectures to stay alive.
