Introduction
I like reading, writing, cooking, music, and making stuff.. also like listening to stories. I was born in Jamaica, grew up in Canada, and now live in the UK.

Growing up in Goderich, Ontario, I loved comic books and I was a voracious reader of both fiction and non-fiction literature. My early literary influences include Shakespeare, The Brothers Grimm, Anne Frank, e e cummings, J. D. Salinger, Charles Dickens, TS Eliot, Gertrude Stein, Margaret Atwood, and Farley Mowat, among many others. Later in life, I grew through reading the works of writers such as Octavia Butler, Toni Morrison, Ursula LeGuin, Philip K Dick, and William Gibson.. however previous to this blog, I primarily published non-fiction journalistic pieces. With this blog, I'll share fiction and non-fiction works in progress and some finished pieces. 

My profile photo was taken by Meg Jenkins. The other photos were taken by myself. Returning to life as a writer and lover of all things music and radio and technogeek, my poems are works in progress.

Thank you to Ali at aliventures.com for sharing her insights.
