I am going to be Published!!

Go guess what ... if you have not figured it out ... I am tickled pink to let everyone know ... one of my books is going to be PUBLISHED!!!!

WOW ... is the first thing I have to say ... the second thing is, it has been a long road to get here but I have finally succeeded in achieving one of my most personal goals. I can honestly say it is an outer body experience, a little overwhelming at times, but the most excited period of my life.

It is a children's novel called Dragon Boyz and it was inspired by my son, who has the most creative and intense mind. He is also the reason why I pursued publishing it when I had completed writing it, because his confidence in me was all I needed to take the next step.

I love to write and have been writing for many years. I have some poetry published, and have collaborated with other in literary pieces, but this book is my baby. It is my first and definitely not my last. I do feel very blessed and there are a lot of people who I am very grateful to for supporting me through this entire process.

My launch date for the children's book is in March 2015. So until then I have to put together a package for my publisher to finalize the completion of the book. For those who are interested in publishing, it is a challenging experience, a lot of work, and you must be willing to always take the next step.

BUT IT IS ALL WORTH IT!!!

Ok .... so the question to you guys .... which professional picture should I go with? I have not decided if to go with colour or black and white .... and remember it is a children's novel.

So which one would you chose? HELP!!

  2. Congratulations!! I find the black and white looks so chic. Yet, for a children's book, and I'm speaking with my 7 year old daughter's mindset, a child would be drawn to the color photo. There, just my two cents' worth!

  4. This is so awesome!
    I'm trying to write a novel this year for NaNoWriMo; I am used to nonfiction so this is a stretch!
    If you'd like me or my children to review and blog about your book, please contact me!

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.

Enjoy.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.


This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
