Robert Debs Heinl and Nancy Gordon Heinl, both writers and historians, lived in Haiti from 1959 to 1963.

He retired from the Marine Corps in 1964 and wrote a nationally syndicated newspaper column until his death in 1979. Nancy Gordon Heinl is an independent writer and journalist who has written extensively on black history and voodoo. Born in London, she came to the United States in 1933. Michael Heinl received his B.A. from Johns Hopkins and an M.B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles. He is an international business consultant in Washington, D.C.

Review:

As spellbinding as Voodoo, 'Written in Blood' is a matchless history of Haiti and the Haitian people. (William Manchester)

The turbulent history of Haiti is related in a well-researched and highly readable narrative?Praised by all who have read it as the only complete and fully documented history of Haiti in any language, 'Written in Blood' is certain to become a classic. (Proceedings Magazine, (U.S. Naval Institute))

There is no work in the English language that even approaches the extravagant wealth of information the Heinls have assembled about the world's first black republic. (Washington Star)

The Heinls tell [this] tragic story well." (Footsteps Magazine)
