Hello, readers!

For this contest, you need to read GOLD OF OUR FATHERS and carefully too. So, purchase, borrow or steal–okay, don’t steal–a copy and give it a read.

Publishers Weekly gave the novel a starred review: “Exceptional . . . A window into another culture.”

Second prize is a box of Divine Chocolates, a fair trade company that sources its cocoa from Ghana and awards cocoa farmers shares in the profits.

First prize is a box of Divine Chocolates PLUS the now world-famous GOLD OF OUR FATHERS coffee mug.






In awarding the Divine Chocolates, I’m recognizing cocoa farmers whose livelihoods have been destroyed by illegal gold miners, the backdrop of the novel.

My name is muddled

I have a story

Of past glory

Rising to the rim

To win


Who am I
