Breaking the Cycle


breaking the cycle, by Charlie Alice Raya

While writing book 2, the topic of racism kept knocking on my door and kept finding ways to get into the story.

The extracts of this collection focus on the racism which is handed down from generation to generation.

The main piece, Breaking the Cycle, is a movie (so far only in the story), and it is retold by Jack Harris, a famous actor and one of the main characters in the book series.

The additional pieces, I am Walter Kunze and White Africans add thoughts about the guilt of our ancestors.

Some of his movies are just mentioned in the story, some are recounted by him and, in the case of the Invention of Evil, Jack and Alice watch his movie together.

Extracts from book 2/2, Otaon


As a child, I loved the stories of Sinbad and Ali Baba. And when I thought about the travelling team’s visit to the Middle East, I wanted to capture some of this magic, and allow a whiff of fairy tales into the story.
This is one of the reasons why I eventually decided to let the travelling team visit a fictional, ancient kingdom in the Middle East and, of course, I called it Otaon.
