Why did you choose to create this character for your children’s book?


The character that I created for the children’s book “Five Birds on a Wire” is very much a reflection of me and my own children. I wanted to create a character that was true to who I am and what I know.

“Five Birds on a Wire” is an authentic story that is very much a reflection of the simple experiences that I enjoyed while growing up in the Caribbean. It highlights my fondest moments as an ‘island girl’.  It was my pleasure to be able to create a book with a character that represents a population that is very much so under represented in children’s books by percentage.
