As 2022 has drawn to a close and is now firmly in the rearview mirror, I just want to share a brief reflection. Overall the last year was very trying for me on a personal and professional level. However, despite the challenges it was a period of tremendous growth as a human being, for which I am truly grateful. From love to loss, and tears of joy to teardrops of sorrow, I experienced a full range of emotions.
Nevertheless, in spite of these up and downs, as a writer 2022 was an absolutely fantastic year. I am very pleased to share with you the main literary highlights below:
- The 1st draft of Children of the Ocean God, my upcoming historical fiction novel about the Second Carib War is complete – it comes in at 29 chapters and over 52,000 words!
- I commisioned a new book cover for Children of the Ocean God, which I am excited to showcase since it is inspired by traditional Carib petroglyph symbols (see above)!
- In mid-December I took an amazing trip to the beautiful island of St. Vincent, in which I had the privilege to visit several key historical sites that are the focal point of the narrative in Children of the Ocean God
- My children’s bedtime storybook, Fresh Ereba, has continued to perform well in the UK market, where it has regularly been featured on Amazon’s Top 100 Children’s Bedtime & Dream Books!
- My authorblog has been steadily expanding – to date I have published over 125 posts and counting!
