Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am retired since 2007, having worked with the Government of Jamaica for forty years. I have taken up writing seriously, since my retirement and have published two books on Amazon.
BEYOND THE FENCE is my first novel. THAT BLOOMING SYSTEM was published in November 2017 and HIGHER GROUND will be published by January 2018. I will write the sequel to Beyond the Fence and think about a children’s story book to complete 2018.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book , Higher Ground, was written upon request by the Library Service, for their book competition. The book will be aimed at the 15 to 21 age group and covers topical issues affecting that group.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I find it difficult to plan the details of my chapters and write entirely on the spur of the moment ideas. The editing thereafter takes care of the proper sequence.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
James Patterson and Sydney Sheldon are two of my favourite authors.
What are you working on now?
I’ve taken the time off until 2018 when I’ll begin the sequel to BEYOND THE FENCE
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’ve tried Facebook,Daily newspapers and recently I’ve been exploring promotion sites online. Results are still pending.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write as though your life depend on it and be passionate about it. If you love your work, others will love it too.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Do whatever makes you really happy
What are you reading now?
Women in Love by D. H Lawrence.
What’s next for you as a writer?
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
My Bible would be number one. The others would be difficult.
