Cuban Roots

Cuban Roots

Michael Pyle’s new historical novel, ‘Cuban Roots’, is finally published, after over 25 years of work.

Cuban Roots is a historical novel, based mostly in Cuba and also in Florida, including Daytona Beach. Luis Morales is an eighty-four year old lawyer, born in Cuba, living in Miami. He regularly travels to Cuba to deliver funds inherited by Cubans. He gives an interview to a reporter regarding his interpretation of the feeling of the people living on the island about Fidel Castro’s death, and some strongly criticize his words. After being hounded and attacked, he suffers a medical crisis, and while seemingly unconscious, relives the good and bad experiences of his youth in the country of his birth, the country that he loves, Cuba.

Pyle has traveled all over Cuba numerous times, interviewing people, visiting museum and performing research. Senior officers of the Institute of Cuban History in Havana, Cuba have read the manuscript and found the historical references credible. The Institute has invited him twice to present the book to its annual international symposium.

The Spanish version is expected in September, 2019.

Young Mothers’ Voices, Volume III

Young Mothers’ Voices, Volume III

The third volume of this series continues to disprove stereotypes about teenage mothers, written by those who refuse to be defined by them. As it is for all of us, discovering who they are is a work in progress. The anthology offers teenage mothers a way to express themselves (!) and become published authors at the same time. The girls are students of The Chiles Academy, a charter high school for teenage mothers, which also offers childcare and training in parenting skills.  They often write about the mistakes they have made, countered by the wonderful gifts they have received in the form of their children, and their voices belie many faulty societal representations of pregnant and parent teens.

White Sugar, Brown Sugar

White Sugar, Brown Sugar

The Inland Waterway separates beach-side communities from the mainland on Florida’s east coast. In the 60′s, it also segregated races and cultures. First published in 2012 under the pen-name E.G.Tripp, White Sugar, Brown Sugar and later republished under the author’s name, Michael A. Pyle, the story follows two innocent, naive boys as they struggle through racial and cultural diversity.

David “Jude” Armstrong has grown up in a safe, upper middle-class white world on the beach side with his parents and sister. The tranquility ends when his alcoholic mother tosses his father out of the house. Roosevelt Harris lives in a Black community on the mainland with his grandparents, his frequently- disappearing, heroin-addicted mother, and other family members. Although both have witnessed the misery of drug abuse, they both follow the same path. Jude’s father becomes a guiding light for both boys.

White Sugar, Brown Sugar follows their loss of innocence, submergence to the depths of desperation and eventual emergence as recovering adults. It is a story of deep friendship, hope, strength, and inspiration.
