New release 'Tales from a West Indian Childhood'

Inspired by personal experiences of unwillingly being sent from London to live with their father's mother in Antigua. Tales of a life in England during the 1950s and 60s, and the struggles of being from mixed race families and how two parents believed it best to send two confused little girls to live in the West Indies instead. Reflections of race struggles then and the tragic relevance of it now, nearly 50 years later.
