About the Author

LM ARNAL is a multicultural writer who grew up without family in Europe, at a time when mixed relationships were still taboo, and who migrated at a young age to the United States.
In Europe, after studying literature and political philosophy ARNAL found the weight of racism too thwarting and decided to travel as an adventurer.
The United States was a place where everything seemed possible, and it was easy for this soon-to-be-writer to learn many skills to be independent and remain free.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Henry Miller, George Orwell, Sigmund Freud, Wilhelm Reich, and Fassbinder were ARNAL's first inspirations, then Langston Hughes, Nella Larsen, and Edgar Poe, among many others.

LM wrote articles, mostly for the black press (Nommo, African Affairs, Ariztos, etc) and worked as a radio programmer for many years (to broadcast reggae, jazz, African music, and panels to discuss issues concerning the black community). After training as a HIV Prevention Counselor, ARNAL worked primarily within the black community. Later the education of professionals who deal with HIV patients became a priority on the author's agenda.
In 2002, LM ARNAL edited "Poets Without Limits" an anthology of black writers from the LA Area. Then after seeing the failure of HIV Programs and the refusal in that circle to hire dedicated people, versus corrupt bureaucrats, ARNAL decided to write a script, "Love, Sex and Mathematics," to fight HIV and change behaviors (included in the compilation "Third World USA").

The beliefs in honor, courage, justice and generosity are the values that motivate LM ARNAL to continue the struggle for a fairer world. Because humans "are created equals (Rousseau)" and should be taught not to let the world corrupt them.
