I was born and brought up in Trinidad, and have lived in the United Kingdom for over 30 years. I have done lots of things in my life including run my own design and retail company, and lectured in Business and Marketing. I am now writing fiction set in Trinidad. I have just finished my first novel - God of the Cocoa, and started on my second one - Out of the Cocoa. Some other little things about me: - I have five children, two or them are my stepchildren. - I've had tea at Buckingham Palace...just the once...didn't get a repeat. I wish I could make some positive difference to the world.
