About the Author
A. Robert Allen is a long-time resident of New York City and a higher education professional. A Wave From Mama is his second novel of historical fiction and volume two in his series, Slavery and Beyond. The impetus for the first volume, Failed Moments, was his personal genealogical research, which traced his family tree back hundreds of years and uncovered roots that were White, Black, Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish. Failed Moments is a fictional account of his ancestors in 1790 during the slave revolution in what would become Haiti and later in 1863 during New York’s Draft Riots.Find out more about the author and his works at his website: http://arobertallen.com.
