A chronic daydreamer since the womb, I succumbed early to the writing bug and an addiction to happy-ever-after while growing up in Jamaica. Being the last of eleven adventurous children with a part-time evangelist and full-time practical joker for a father only helped fuel my imagination. We invented games, hosted our own Olympics, explored flooded gullies, solved mysteries, held court, plotted mischief, kept weird pets and raided the neighbor’s mango tree.
In between plotting wacky adventures, I spent my spare time lost inside a book or scribbling furiously in a notebook. I wrote stories. I read stories. I wrote more stories. I wrestled sentences in my sleep.
After a writing degree in New York, I freelanced in South Florida, took a crash course in real life and pursued adventures in homeschooling before debuting on Amazon with The Far Corner of the Greenhouse.
Today I’m mom to two newly adult children who keep me grounded in reality and one perpetually young special-needs munchkin who teaches me every day the true meaning of life more abundant. I’m currently in the thick of an indie-publishing adventure in South Carolina’s low country and enjoy getting lost inside a town called Destiny.
Five Facts I left out of the official bio:
- I rarely do today what I can put off for tomorrow.
- I’ve been moved to repentance more often by lightning than by conscience.
- I watched so many vampire movies growing up I never quite outgrew my nightlight.
- I do my best thinking at 3 a.m.
- I have a hard time coming up with a beginning until I’ve figured out the end.
