I’ve finally decided to write snippets of my activities as I see them fit. For all of you who might be curious about the status of DESTA 4, I’ve formally started it at the beginning of last month. In this volume, Desta is starting the 9th grade in Bahir Dar, far from home and in a place he knows no one. He is trying hard to adapt and get used to the place. It has not been easy. He came here primarily hoping to find the second magic coin. Instead, he discovers that the ever illusive coin is shrouded with layers of mystery and people who seem to know can only give him hints and clues that lead nowhere.

This volume is probably going to be the most complex of all the 3 volumes written so far. It involves characters from three continents and histories spanning several generations. As much as I am excited where I maybe going with this novel, I’m also overwhelmed by the task ahead.  Somehow, I hope to find my way through the maze.

At the same time, I’m working on the long promised and differed nutrition book called, The Four Pillars of Health. This book, which is near and dear to my heart, is about what my wife and I have been to do for our health.  It involves special foods we formulated and have been enjoying for quite sometime. It will contain a lot of recipes so that you too can make and enjoy these foods. We are hoping to release the book by mid-May or early June.
