From the Author
Istarted writing the book Brakenstroom, in 1992, after a friend of mine passedaway, at a very young age. When I finished writing his story, I thought that Ishould write about my Grandfather, so that my children could know him, a man Inever met because he died before I was born. That started the flow of stories,about people I knew, and stories I was told by family and friends.Thebook, The Vase with the Many Colored Marbles, is a story about a mother anddaughter that I knew. I promised that I would not publish it until after themother had passed on. Took close to 6 years to write, edit, rewrite and PODpublish. A story that is very emotional, because I lived with it for manyyears. A story that everyone should read and learn how terrible it was livingin a country that classified those who were not born white, as second classcitizens, raised and poorly educated so that they would always be 'slaves.' This is a love story, a story of survival and hope. This is the story of a woman who broke the rules and never regretted it. She broke the rules and became an equal.
