Bio

Gwyn (pronounced Gwan) McGee is a native of Gary Indiana. She left Gary to attend Fisk University and during that time was introduced to the first of a series of religious and spiritual philosophies that she welcomed.

Gwyn was a journalist in the 80's. She worked as a street reporter for America's oldest African American radio station, WDIA, before her journalistic career expanded to include television and a news directorship. Shortly after her 7 years as a journalist a life threatening event served as a catalyst for Gwyn's intense search for a deeper meaning behind life.

In 1991 Gwyn sold her first fiction under the pen name of Eboni Snoe. Over a period of 15 years she wrote 13 novels that explore the contribution and value of indigenous cultures to modern society. One of her novels, Tell Me I'm Dreamin', received a National Bestseller Award from Waldenbooks. As a result of her publishing career Gwyn has had the privilege of speaking in a variety of non-academic and academic settings.

 

 

As Gwyn's interests in spiritual affairs increased along with her passion for learning about indigenous peoples her work naturally reflected her transformation. In 2002, for several months, she attended and recorded events that unfolded during a Hindu based devotional singing session. It was a turning point for Gwyn. She writes about those life-altering days in her book, a non-fiction entitled Bharosha Ma: 22 Weeks With Divinity. Unlike her other works, she self-published Bharosha Ma after weighing the pros and cons of traditional publishing.

Shree Shirdi Sai Baba Of South San Francisco: Divine Touch is Gwyn's most recent work. This was a 2010 collaborative project. In this book Anita Bawa, Gwyn's co-author, shares her miraculous experiences after accumulating 10 years of notes in South San Francisco. The book is an account of how Shirdi Sai Baba who made His Maha Samadhi...His physical transition in India in 1918, is very active in a present day mandir in California.

Gwyn is a traveler. Her experiences include whale watching in Husavik, Iceland, climbing Bai-Yun Mountain in Guangzhou, China, watching an Ammassilik woman perform an ancient dance in Greenland, participating in a 600 mile radius Native American Medicine Wheel ceremony at the Grand Tetons, and dancing as a representation of a Hindu goddess for a Nepalese crowd at an all night religious celebration in Kathmandu.
