The Boy from Willow Bend tells the story of Vere, an Antiguan youth, with an irrepressible spirit which is tested as he comes of age amid poverty, loss, and hard knocks. The women in his life - his absent mother, longsuffering tanty, rebellious June, first crushes Kim and Makeba, and first girlfriend Elizabeth - help shape him; so, too, his abrasive grandfather and others. In the end, though, he grows into his own person; bright, talented, a survivor.
The Boy from Willow Bend, now on the Antigua and Barbuda schools reading list, was originally published in 2002 by Macmillan. The second edition, released in 2009, was published by Hansib.

AN EXAMINATION OF BLACK BRITISH WRITING FROM A BLACK BRITISH PERSPECTIVE Write Black, Write British: From Post Colonial to Black British Literature examines the new Black British writers in Britain, born in Britain, writing about Britain from a specific British perspective. This collection of essays puts the work of British-born writers of African and Caribbean parentage, who published first collections in the late eighties and nineties, under a magnifying glass. Themes of alienation, belonging, gender politics, identity, language, madness, and race reverberate yet with a peculiar variance than that of post colonial writers. Included are essays on Diran Adebayo, Patience Agbabi, Jackie Kay, Andrea Levy, Leone Ross, Dorothea Smartt, Zadie Smith and Benjamin Zephaniah.
