It's been a banner year for me already, and it couldn't happen at a better time, given I'm still hunting for a full time job. So far, I've had three acceptances, signed two contracts, and I've just learned I'm a finalist in the Clarkesworld Readers' Poll for favourite story of 2018 for my short, The … Continue reading Clarkesworld Readers’ Poll 2018
It's been a while. Hope you guys behaved yourselves while I was gone. Just a bit of news for those wondering what's been happening since I last dropped by. I signed up for NaNoWriMo for only the second time in my life because I love deadlines and I really want to get this second book … Continue reading NaNoWriMo And Piracity, Arrgh!
Just so you guys know, it worked. You know that book I was posting bits of pieces of on here? The Nightward? Well, as planned, I finished writing it during my break. I've moved on to beta readers and continuous edits, which will end either when the book is bought and polished, or when I trunk it. … Continue reading Success!!
Hope you've all been behaving yourself while I'm away, putting the final scenes in my latest book. Remember I mentioned some good things were coming up for me soon? Well, one of them just dropped. Caribbean Beat magazine, the free in-flight magazine for Caribbean Airlines--one of the largest carriers in the Caribbean--interviewed me a while … Continue reading New Caribbean Beat Magazine Interview!

However, I've since got over my bronchitis, killed my work assignment and had a blast on vacation in St. … Continue reading Public Service Announcement!

I've been nominated for the Three Day Quote Challenge by Erin Burns! She has a wonderful blog in which she reviews books, among other things. She's extra special to me because not only did she read and like my novel LEX TALIONIS, she left reviews for it all over the place. If she wasn't already … Continue reading 3 Day Quote Challenge! And They’re Off!!
* Edit: It appears I got my history a bit wrong. Marlon James is the first Jamaican to win the Man Booker. However, the first Caribbean national to win it appears to have been V.S. Naipaul. It just so happens he was born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago! Yesterday I had a great time … Continue reading A Talk And An Award
A bit from a story I'm still working on. Funny thing is, I finished another story with the same character and it got an Honourable Mention in the Writers of the Future Contest last year, but for some reason this story is just not cooperating. It won't tell me how to get to the ending, … Continue reading Tantie, Papa And The Mango Tree On Diego Colony
