Bajan-rooted author returns to train fellow countrymen
A Barbadian descended author is back in her roots to push her debut novel and show others how to become writers too…
She just completed a workshop in St George at the art residency known as Fresh Milk – she had an official launch at the Museum last week and she provided Bajan Reporter with an insight of how the book came into being, she was transposing summers spent here in the late 80s and early 90s and looking at the familiarity and yet aloofness Caribbean-descended folk have when placed directly in the focus of their parents’ origins.
As if that is not enough, Ms Jackson is already planning her sophomore effort, this is called “Behind God’s Back,” and is looking at 70 years of Caribbean women and their interaction from this region spilling into the American diaspora. She is now in the process of accessing a publisher.
