Omar T Series (Mystery “Lite”)
BUY ON AMAZON - PAPERBACK OR KINDLE eBOOK

About the Omar T Series:
Omar and his family travel to a different location for each of these culinary adventures. The travel fiction aspect is enhanced with descriptions of actual sites, restaurants, bookstores, galleries and shops—including sketches, favorite lists and recipes. Diversity in race, religion, culture, language and sexual orientation not only exists within Omar’s family, it is celebrated in these tales. I call this story telling “Mystery Lite” because it is not centered on murder and violence, the mystery is based on an intriguing aspect of a place’s actual history. Rather than relying on the perverse, these stories are meant to appeal to the enlightened—someone who prefers stories that revolve around the resolve of the human spirit and the creative arts that such a spirit inspire. Each Omar T book is independent, you do not need to read them in the order of their publication, though there are some references for those who do. ENJOY!
