My latest book B0746K5Q35

This is a story of a Chinese girl growing up in the multi- racial island of Trinidad, the land of the humming bird. She describes her life growing up in a country village, the problems and joys she experiences being brought up by a single parent. She describes village life, religious festivals, fairs and activities that she experienced as a Chinese girl growing up in a predominantly black environment. This brings to the forefront the question of whether this still happens in rural Trinidad or have things changed and Chinese have integrated totally in Trinidadian culture.







London in the springtime

This is a book which displays the flowers the author has found in London in Spring 2017.  She displays her love of flowers by finding flowers all over London: in parks, on the streets, in flower pots, in window boxes and in hanging baskets.  She invites the reader to enjoy the flowers and imagine themselves in a world of sensory emotions, of feeling and smelling.  She thinks of the poet John Keats:

From Endymion

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
