BIOGRAPHY I was born in Guyana, moved to England in the early sixties. I worked and studied in London. Residing in Sweden since the beginning of the seventies. I retired a few years ago from a mental health occupation and from a private counseling practice.
The seventies, I began writing, wrote mostly short stories, a four-act closet drama, a few novellas, and an unfinished biographical novel, and had spent two years nurturing the ambition to become an author of some repute. But financially the going was tough, as well as the feeling of insecurity for the future. I worked as a hospital porter for some years. I received a BA (Eng. & Ed.). Unfortu.nately, my interest in writing faded until a couple of years ago.
In Feb (2016), I self-published my debut book a collection of two short stories and two novellas, Strangers In Another Country, available only as an e-book.
In December 2016, I self-published a novella The Eternal Struggle: An Amorous Story, in ebook format and paperback format.
Getting it Right, if Ever - a Romance Novella will be available 22nd Aug 2019
