'I believe what we become depends on what the most high teaches us at odd moments... there we are formed by the tides of wisdom and creation.
Writing fiction means playing a game by which we give sense to the immensity of things that happened, are happening, or will happen in the actual world.
Love and music at their essence is what gives us the memories; and in most songs there is a book.
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness… And with this candle is my will to light every corner of the room – every horizon like the sun.
We hope Deeper Soul would make a positive impact on the motivated reader who shares the vibrational love and understanding of the Caribbean peoples’ heritage. It was also written for the roving traveller to see the isle not only in a recreational, relaxing mirror but also as an island with genuine hospitality and a treasured stimulating culture. Within this culture exists a strong and positive appreciation which welcomes all faiths in an ethical and democratic atmosphere. Barbados has arrived at a place where its way of life and social order invites emulation, however large elements of a self-centered business sector has grown deaf to the struggling poor. If this continues it can lead us into dire straits. It can successfully meet its current and prospective economic challenges but a magnitude of expenditure is still a cause for grave concern. I am not sure how much longer the Caribbean in general can avoid remedying this issue. We would find it extremely difficult to withstand another major external economic shock.
Life is one big road – With lots of signs. And in the book of reality – There’s no limit to the mind. Praises to the true belief – The roots we trace.
Ring a voice with humanity – The earth our very true faith.
Uprising through our creation – One Love for One Aim.
One destiny a world nation – One blood we came.
The craft of writing… teaches us a lot about ourselves actually because having gone through the experience, which I think necessarily is an arduous one and takes – you know, it takes awhile. It takes a lot of effort. There’s an enormous amount of satisfaction-in seeing it through and coming to the close. And it’s very personal too. So, it’s required me to think about things in ways that I hadn’t before and to think them through. I mean, Well, what do I really think about this, and what do I... you know, and.... why? So I think I know myself a lot better than I did before.
Primarily ‘Deeper Soul’ promotes Caribbean culture and this exceptional hospitality. In Barbados we speak a national language called
Bajan, which also applies to us as a people. The essential appeal and key message of the book in which I want people to go away with is that we should be empowered in our creation. The concepts of freedom, liberty and democracy are crucial in our societies. To inspire a hopeful future, a future in which human beings would gather together to use their minds to make peace and raise the idea of rational thinking to the status of moral principle. Promoting compassion, as the highest human potential and preach it in the spiritual language of the fellowman.
'We have a warrant out for your arrest. Arresting your Vision, Sensitivity, Emotion, Conviction your Compassion and purpose. Your Hope and Inspiration. Take a few a few hours of your precious time; may be a day or two. This is DEEPER SOUL—It's not a religious hustle but an insightful thriller which arises from a Bajan Caribbean focus, uplifting the spirit of the human being.'
The great nations of the world would do well to remember that in the modern age even their own fates are not wholly in their hands. Peace demands the united efforts of us all. Unless the rights of the least of men are as assiduously protected as those of the greatest, the seeds of confidence and certitude will fall on barren soil.

banks and fossil fuel giants and conflict profiteers. And those are the interests it
