My story is that I grew up in Montego Bay, Jamaica, where I was in-sync with the nature of the ravishingly beautiful sunshine Island. I was a very happy-go-lucky little girl growing up. Nothing really seemed to bother me. I was the youngest of three children and I was a quite a little comedian. I was a tomboy who enjoyed climbing trees, playing soccer, hunting crabs, catching crayfish in the river, and spending myriad hours at the beach. I ran 100 meter sprints and relays, played badminton, and indulged in creative dancing.
I had a passion for writing short stories which was one of my favorite pastimes. I also wrote poems, as well as entered poetry recital competitions and won medals for my school. I delighted in calligraphy and had such an excitement for reading. I enjoyed books like Tom Sawyers, Huckleberry Finn, and Mills and Boone romance novels. I also loved to cook and bake. I began cooking at the age of eight.
I received a degree from the University of South Carolina in Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Administration, and later Elementary Education at Florida Atlantic University.
My family and I reside in Boca Raton, Florida. It’s peaceful and serene. Now and then we take pleasure in the surroundings by going fishing or taking spontaneous nature walks. My family is a vital part of who I am. I have two teenage sons with calm dispositions who are my pride and joy. My father was a man of integrity, and he lives is my heart forever. He instilled in us a core value system that defined who he was. My mother is an idealistic. She is a retired business owner. She has a green-thumb and is an ardent lover of orchids and exotic plants and flowers. She craves art and loves antiques. My parents were married for 50 years and then my dad passed peacefully from stage 4 colon cancer. I know about profound love by the means of my parents over the years. Their relationship was a primary example of everlasting love. My brother passed away in his thirties. He was the eldest, and he was very protective of his sisters. He loved us immensely. I am fortunate to have my sister living close-by. She is conscientious and reliable. We were always mistaken for twins while growing up, especially since we’re a year apart. We have a very special and close relationship.
