About the Author: Qwantu Amaru

Hi, I'm Qwantu Amaru (kwan-too-a-mar-oo) - best selling award winning novelist of One Blood - a Kirkus Reviews Novel of Remarkable Merit. Nice to e-meet ya!

I was born in Pittsburgh, PA and remain true to the values instilled in me while living there until I was five years old - work hard, family first, and look out for opportunities. My grandmother owned a salon and was a true entrepreneur which inspired me to go out and build my own dreams. We moved to Louisiana when I was 11 and the six years I spent in this unique state from junior high through high school became the backbone of my first novel, One Blood.

One Blood represents a lifelong dream for me. It took me 12 years to realize this dream but the critical and audience response let me know that my dreams were not in vain. Hope you pick it up and let me know what you think!

I've always been an avid reader and Tolkein, C.S. Lewis, Isaac Asimov, and Ray Bradbury were some of my early favorites. Later on, I discovered Stephen King and never looked back! I've been fortunate to live all over the US and overseas as well and this diversity of experience certainly informs my work.

I currently reside in Jakarta, Indonesia and am hard at work on a new trilogy. Look forward to interacting with you here on goodreads!

Prepare to lose sleep as you journey through this award-winning Horror/Thriller novel with an ending you won't see coming!

One Blood is a superb supernatural thriller that will make you an instant fan of this author. Rich themes of voodoo, family curses, political ambitions and a quest for power are dominant in this roller coaster ride set in Louisiana.

Governor Randy Lafitte is popular and beloved after battling back from brain cancer, but his political success has come at a price. When his daughter is kidnapped, Lafitte is confronted with a past he thought died a long time ago. However, what hasn't caught you, hasn't passed you. And what comes for Lafitte may be way more than he or the forces behind him can handle as he fights the demons (literally demons) from his past.
