Writer. Filmmaker. Author. Storyteller

"What would I do if I had only six months left to live? I'd type faster." – Isaac Asimov

I'm a Barbadian author, filmmaker, playwright, lover of bacon and mangoes. My soul mate is fiction; my lover is screenwriting. I write while staring at the ocean, hoping that the power and peace of the waves transfer to the page. My goal is to make the reader pause – even for one moment – and think about the story after  they've  finished reading it.
