Haggatt Hall’s Sky Mall now focal point for Bajan literature and entrepreneurship: Kemar Doughty’s fantasy thrills new readers
Kemar Doughty is a 21 year old Barbadian writer who created a fantasy thriller for young Bajans. Writing from very young, he was inspired to write what became his first published book. He says he’s the first author in his family, which he reveals with an almost embarrassed grin…
This novel developed after his learning of a story from his friend’s grandmother about a man from Saint Peter who died at sea, according to legend, at the hands of a creature that was half-human, half-fish.
As one gets deeper in the book you discover a dreamy romance, yet it’s also quite the thriller, and a feast for the imagination. Kemar brings mermaid folklore to life and concludes it with an exciting, epic battle!
