I am originally from Trinidad and Tobago an island in the Caribbean. As the oldest of six, I worked hard at achieving my goals. Although my parents were strict with us children, I was thankful and obedient. I helped my mother with cooking, doing laundry, cleaning, ironing and painting. In my high school and junior college years, I focused on studying, passing exams, and obtaining a job to help my parents and siblings financially. In my spare time, I read mystery novels and wrote short stories. (read more+)

Joan Blake has blessed our library with 2 programs. She gave an interesting and inspiring book talk of her own memoir. Joan also conducted a memoir writing workshop series over 8 to 10 weeks which was attended consistently by a group of women. Joan kindly gave the participants lots of time to share their own writing and she and the women mutually encouraged one another. The workshop series included homework readings and writing. I would gladly recommend Joan to speak or lead work shops in other locations as well as welcome her back to our library for additional programs.
