In this episode of Author to Author, Dr. Cynthia Toolin-Wilson interviews Dr. Ronda Chervin on her book 77 Soundbytes of Love (June 7, 2023)This book is an anthology of soundbytes — 77 to be exact — drawn from almost one hundred philosophical works of Ronda Chervin written over the past half century. Why 77? It’s a number signifying the triumph of the spirit over matter and the personal freedom to pursue things of interest. That’s the goal for our readers – to set their souls free to partake in a spiritual journey to a more authentic self. Readers will engage a soundbyte a day, journaling as they go, trying to live by the spiritual truth expressed over the course of their time with it before advancing to the next soundbyte.For the interactive blog, see 77 Soundbytes of Love | En Route Books and Media

A true story of police excess in a small town in north Kerala, it takes readers into the milieu of the Muslim community of the area, offers glimpses of life in a mofussil prison, and underlines the fragility and randomness of life.
