author. Filmmaker. 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, and lover of mangoes. 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.
