Kiran Dellimore is a scientist, prolific inventor and aspiring writer who currently resides in the beautiful Dutch city of Utrecht, where he is an avid runner, squash player and rock climber. He is the author of three books, Squash Diary: The Story of How Squash Saved My Life (2010), Walking in Footsteps of Promise (2019) and Fresh Ereba: A Collection of Caribbean Bedtime Stories (2013 1st edition, 2020 2nd edition).
I am working on three books right now . A yet to be named children’s bedtime story book as a follow up to Fresh Ereba. A book about running called What I Think About When I Run. And my most ambitious book of all The Ashes From Our Tears. This will be a historical fiction novel about some of my ancestors called the Garifuna (also known as the Black Caribs). They have a compelling yet tragic story that has been largely untold. Among their many extraordinary achievements was their armed resistance against European colonization of the Caribbean island of St Vincent for nearly two centuries. Equally remarkable, the Garifuna were also the first non-white/indigenous people to ever sign an accord with a European colonial power (Great Britain). Adding further intrigue to their story is the as yet unresolved mystery surrounding the origin of the Garifuna, which remains the subject of historical and anthropological debate to this day.
