About the Author

Light of the Dove, One Man’s Journey Back Home, a Novel in Three Books: The Calling; Lessons of Home; and Death by Envy, which takes the reader from Atlanta, to Costa Rica, to Chicago, to Ohio, and back to Costa Rica chronicling the protagonist’s journey in search of his true self, the lost soul his mother knew, is about family and the quantum connections between mothers and sons, about the interconnectedness that makes us one people, about the values of compassion and community versus competition and individualism, about racism and its deep hidden roots, about self-envy and the related dangers of narcissism and solipsism.

Miles Alexander, the protagonist, son of an Alabama sharecropper, is a successful lawyer and businessman, who, much to his Atlanta law partners’ dismay, has set out to acquire a restaurant chain from the notorious (and reportedly racially intolerant) Costa Rican coffee baron, Humberto Cabrera, one of the wealthiest and most mysterious dons of Central America.

Miles’s mother, Mary Rose Alexander, the Dove, with a mother’s intuition, senses the conflict in her son’s life and fears for his future if he doesn’t change. Through a series of transpersonal (quantum entanglement) exchanges in The Calling, she summons Miles to his hometown in Ohio where she intends to share a vision of his future she hopes will lead him to change the pace of his life before it’s too late. Answering his mother’s call—which comes to him through a series of dreams and anxious moments during his most recent stay in Costa Rica—Miles returns to Canton, Ohio, where upon his arrival his mother suffers a major stroke that marks the beginning of his long and often painful journey of self-rediscovery, during which
