Today we are here with Stephen Whitfield, author for the recently released audiobook, Omari and the People. Both of us basically live for books on audio because of our commute and were curious about Stephen’s process to becoming an author. We asked him to share some surprises with us today. []

Author: Stephen Whitfield – Narrator: Curt Simmons – Length: 11h 17m Publisher: Shirley Castle Press⎮2016 – Genre: Fiction

In a squalid ancient city on the edge of a desert (based in part on the African Sahara’s Empty Quarter) a weary, thrill-seeking thief named Omari sets his home afire to start anew and to cover his many crimes. When the entire city is unintentionally destroyed by the flames, the cornered thief tells the displaced people a lie about a better place which only he can lead them to, across the desert. With the help of an aged, mysterious woman who knows a better place actually does exist, they set out. The desperate people must come together to fight their way through bandits, storms, epidemics, and more. As a result of Omari’s involvement with Saba, a fiercely independent woman who is out to break him in the pay of a merchant whom he has offended, his ability  to lead – his very life – is jeopardized.
