Early Life[edit]

Ardain lived in Haiti until he was 18. He then moved to Miami, Florida to join his relatives who had already settled there. He attended Miami Dade Community College, where he received an associate degree in Computer Science.

Dr. Delores Smiley, retired Executive Director of the Office of Diversity and Cultural Affairs in the Abraham S. Fischler School of Education at Nova Southeastern University, wrote,  “One of the most notable attributes of this masterpiece is that it grows and develops into a work that is universal in nature thereby becoming a microcosm as it depicts events going on in our world today.  The effects of various styles of leadership, of the perils of classism, of politics, of economics and survival and how one can still extrapolate dignity, love, and moral values for family, community and country has a sobering effect on the reader.  Midnight delivers.” Read [1] Dr. Smiley’s remarks] Ardain Isma currently lives with his wife Maryse and his three children in suburban Jacksonville, Florida.
