About the Author

Gwen was born in the village of Old Road on the island of St. Kitts in the Caribbean. Her interest in story telling was ignited by her own childhood experience. Every night before bedtime her grandmother told stories. Those nighttime stories are one of her fondest childhood memories. As an adult Gwen continued the practice of storytelling with her son. Gwen feels that every child should take that mythical journey of hearing a story being told before bedtime. In her writing she captures the nuance of her Caribbean upbringing and its culture— life in a village and the questioning attitude of a young boy growing up on an island. Gwen is an avid reader who loves to travel and takes great pleasure in gardening.
