I'm a Canadian citizen who was born in Montserrat, British West Indies.
The corona virus global pandemic reminded me how quickly life can change, and even end, and how important it is to capture my rich experiences for the benefit of my children, and others. So, I wrote my memoir, Almost Full Circle: From Montserrat to Canada and Back-ish. It chronicles my journey from a small village in Montserrat, to Canada, and my attempt to return home, after a volcano destroyed my village. My book won the 2022-2023 Reader Views Gold medal award, in the Memoir/Autobiography/Biography category. It has also been on Amazon's Best Seller list a number of times.
Moda and the Masquerades: The Rhythm Plays On, is my second book. It’s a fictional story, inspired by true events. It will be published soon.
I'm passionate about sharing my stories, and hold the opinion that you should write/record/share yours, too, even if you don’t publish them. When we experience other cultures, and perspectives, we all benefit; we’re more empathetic; more tolerant; more enlightened.
I live in Ontario, Canada, and have two children—Gabrielle and Lemuel.
My personal guiding principles are: lead, love, laugh, and live with gratitude.
"...Love your neighbour as yourself" (Matthew 22:39), implies that you already love yourself. The challenge is to love your neighbour in the same way. I accept the challenge.
