Order a copy of The Imbondeiro Tree and recieve a free learning packet to accompany the book!


My first book, The Imbondeiro Tree, is now available in bookstores everywhere! It is published by Black Rose Writing and is a memoir of my father's life told through his voice.

Spanning more than eight decades and three continents, The Imbondeiro Tree is the true story of Antonio Augusto who grew up in the tiny Azores Islands of Portugal with big dreams of going to Africa someday. Fueled by courage and conviction, he boards a ship to Angola, Africa as a young adult and his adventure begins. Although Africa is a harsh, unforgiving continent, he is eternally mesmerized by its charms. Then, brutal civil war erupts in 1975 and Antonio's faith and determination are once again put to the test. He faces losing everything and leaving his beloved Angola behind only to start over in Southern California as an immigrant with a family to support.

From the coastal villages of the Azores and the untamed jungles of Africa to Southern California, The Imbondeiro Tree is a testament to the power of ambition and faith and the triumph of the human spirit.

The Imbondeiro Tree is a great addition to your lesson plans! It will work well with a unit on African Colonialism, World History, Immigration, etc.
