Short and Sweet

She, her. Writer. Ex-doctor. Ex-Catholic. Ex-Muslim. So what?

Writing personal essays, social and political commentary, novels, book reviews and god-knows-what-else.

What life experience though? Born in England, grew up in the Caribbean. Medicine, sales, multi-level marketing, migration, depression, dyslexia, marriage, faith, faithlessness.

Oh wait! I’m a parent too, raising three kids. How could I forget? Eldest born in 2003. Youngest in 2013.

Started freelancing as a writer in my twenties, dabbled in blogging in my thirties — and in my forties, going professional after all, because, why not do something you love, and do it well?

Writing to share what I’ve experienced and learned, what I know well and what’s left me stumped. Knowing our worlds have touched and transformed, just because our minds met through words, is plenty gratification.

Thanks for stopping by. It’s been a pleasure. Hope to see you again soon!

But Now, Appetizers, If You’re Staying Longer
