About the Book

Jacinth Henry-Martin delivers a compelling series of poems in “A Piece of My Mind”. Composed with great zest and conviction, the book is a literary tribute to all who have succeeded in discarding physical , mental and emotional shackles to metaphorically dance and celebrate life in the face of all its challenges. The poems are liberating and vindicating, and paint pictures with words about all aspects of life.

In 2011, she was appointed Ambassador of St. Kitts and Nevis to the USA and Permanent Representative to the OAS, and in 2013 became her country’s first Ambassador to Mexico.
