Meet the Author

The oldest of ten children, Maryanne Raphael grew up in the small Appalachian village of Waverly, Ohio—named for Sir Walter Scott's Waverly novels. At Ohio University, she majored in Creative Writing and Romance Languages and was Phi Beta Kappa and editor of Sphere, the literary magazine. She won a scholarship to the Sorbonne. After France, she went to the Caribbean where she met and married Lennox Raphael, a Trinidadian writer, and they traveled through fifty countries. Their son Raphael was born in New York City. They divorced after eleven years but remained friends. She is the author of Runaway: America’s Lost (co-author Jenifer Wolf), Mother Teresa: Called to Love, The Man who Loved Funerals, Alexandria (co-author Patricia Walden), Along Came a Spider, A Personal Look at Madness and Anais Nin: The Voyage Within. Maryanne‘s latest project is Touching the Face of God: What Mother Teresa Taught Me.

Lennox Raphael was born in Trinidad and is the author of the play Che! —a hit in Manhattan for over a year. He has written for Harper’s, Evergreen, Tribes, and other national publications, and was a staff writer with The East Village Other (EVO), as well as featured in several magazines and anthologies, including Amistad (edited by Ishmael Reed). He has lectured at the City College of New York and the University of Rhode Island; wrote and directed the musicals, Blue Soap, Rumpelstilskin, Dracula the Dreamer, and the musical drama, Waiting for Mick Jagger. He played in the Plastic Ono Band, with John Lennon and Yoko Ono, notably during a concert for John Sinclair in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He lives and writes presently in Copenhagen, where he is a painter and published poet with several books, among them Tears of the Soul, Joy of Love, Art of Love, and Nøgen Jomfru. He is an Artistic Director of the Copenhagen Art Club (www.artclub.dk), a music-theater-performance stage network; writes a weekly online article for www.art-money.org; and is a director of 2020 Visions dk (www.2020visions.dk), an arts promotions collective operating in Holland and Scandinavia. He is presently writing a novel and completing a cycle of plays about love and jealousy.

    GARDEN OF HOPE well tended

    I can't remember when last I read such a lucid & healing description of companionable living. What makes Garden of Hope so refreshing is the easy ability of the writers Maryanne Raphael,and Lennox Raphael, to take you, the reader, me, into their confidence and never once did I feel as though I was trespassing emotionally. I felt even more strongly afterwards that behind each cloud there is a silver lining. In fact, this outstanding memoir is a must-read for those who love life and never give in to contemporary trials & tribulations. It tell you, too, that the garden of hope is the individual.
