Writing under the most difficult circumstances, the author created several works including an autobiography and three books, one of them, the exciting and most talked about movie type Barbadian crime thriller 'Fields of Death,' a novel based on the canefield murders and serious crime in the Caribbean.
The inception of his writing was over seven years ago, but his first novel 'Fields of Death,' along with three other unpublished books were written in a span of five years.
He believes like the fabled poets of Arabia, his writing evolved from the spirit world, and his work is known in some sense to be prophetic and almost factually although fictional.
So relevant to a contemporary Caribbean, his book Fields of Death has arrested the minds of many a readers locally and abroad.
