Virgin Islands Emancipation Festival, 2013

Some of my pix of the 2013 parade in Road Town, Tortola.

The Prince and Princess of the Festival and their court!

Probably the BVI's best-known farmer and a popular participant in each year's parade.

Young majorettes doing their thing!

BVI's New Hospital in the Making

Our new hospital has been a long time coming but everything seems on track to bring it to completion by the end of September! Yay!  The new hospital will be a state-of-the-art facility with the latest equipment and will also bring us some significant innovations in terms of patient care.  Our old Peebles Hospital has only one surgery room but the new hospital will have three. There will also be a full mental ward with seven rooms and, if you need, physical therapy there will be a whole array of services offered, including a plunge pool.

The rather impressive lobby area where the names of benefactors will be prominently displayed.

Jamaica Dreaming - AVAILABLE NOW!

Available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Smashwords! Coming soon to Kobo, Apple, etc.

More than a year after surviving a horrific accident, Chicago songstress, Julissa Morgan, still hasn’t returned to the stage and her bills are piling up. When she’s offered a few gigs in Jamaica she’s tempted to say ‘no,’ but she needs the money and the concerts there might be a great way to test her readiness to launch a comeback in her home city. What Julissa doesn’t know is that Sebastian Chung, the wealthy benefactor footing the bill for the fundraising concerts, has an ulterior motive. Sebastian fell in love with the dark beauty after watching her perform and he’s determined to leave no stone unturned in his effort to have her. Julissa is engaged, however, and loyal to her man. Will Sebastian be able to win her away from her fiancĂ© or will he and Julissa share only an ‘island’ romance?
