A little bit about me...

Once upon a time, in a tropical land far away, a stylish little Jamaican girl frolicked about in the sun and sand.  Life was sweet and simple...until that day came when she was told she would be leaving for America...
She was wearing one of her signature dresses and patent leather Mary Janes when she stepped off the plane at JFK that late November day.  Winter was not her friend.  And then there was that place she moved to…Brooklyn…a concrete jungle.  People lived on top of each other and there was hardly anything green there.  But in time she would fall in love with the energy of the city.  She often found herself staring up at the skyscrapers imagining the lives that were being lived so close to heaven.  She would jot down some of these thoughts in her composition book. She went off to Syracuse University determined to become a doctor, but made a left turn somewhere and ended up in Los Angeles working in television.  But she found time to travel the world—There was a bumpy camel ride to the Great Pyramid at Giza, walks through the halls of the Taj Mahal, and a wondrous sight of elephants roaming across the Masai Mara in Kenya.  And then there were the trips back to her native Jamaica, which is where the idea for her first novel, The Cricket’s Serenade, began to take shape.  Her second novel, Revenge Of A Not-So-Pretty Girl, published by Random House, takes place on those same Brooklyn streets where she grew up.

When not writing, the stylish Jamaican works as a script supervisor on TV shows. She enjoys hiking, jalapeño margaritas, rooting on the Yankees and praying for the Jets. Type your paragraph here.
