T.D. El-Amin Pens Second Novel

“The frenzied exit of the crowd gave indication that the verdict was coming forward.  News reporters began the mad scramble to position themselves at the entrances to the court steps.  For Mia, the anxiety and anticipation had become almost unbearable.  The burden of the possible outcomes visibly weighed on her butterscotch skin. Eyes puffy from a lack of sleep, an unending trail of tears had flowed from her cheeks without end since she’d left the airport that day; the day her world seemingly stopped on its axis.”
 This is an excerpt from Mia Farone: Lost and Turned Out, a novel by St. Louis’s own, T.D. El-Amin.  The novel, the first of a trilogy, was a departure from the more serious natured T.D. El-Amin.   Mia Farone: Lost and Turned Out incorporates the familiar local setting of St. Louis after the main character, Mia Farone, a half Italian-half African-American, is uprooted from her childhood home in Tivoli, Italy.  It chronicles the trail of innocence of the character  and traces the whirlwind story of an intimate, forbidden romance and a betrayal that beckons revenge. Asked if the story strikes parallel and familiar tones, “It’s a beautiful thing when the reader can see themselves in the writing and find those parallels in themselves,” he said.   Now T.D. is set to release the second in the trilogy,”Shadows Of A Cell” that continues the saga.  T.D. will read from his new work along with local authors, Chris King and Virvus Jones at the Missouri
 History Museum on September 23rd at 7:00 p.m.
