I was refused work as a teacher in my area of the Corentyne in Guyana. There was a dire need for teachers but the political situation of that time was not favourable. These stories followed soon after the refusal.

I first wrote In Grammas Kitchen, then others came to me over the next few years. They were conjured up and set in Guyana but followed me around to St. Andrews, my first real home in the UK and then back to the Midlands.

Long before multi-culturalism became a buzz word in education, it prevailed in 79 village in the Skeldon area of the Corentyne River, Guyana. Here I spent my earliest years of childhood. The plantation culture of Guyana had thrown Amerindians (Arawaks and other indigenous people), Africans, Indians, Portuguese, Chinese, Scottish, English and people of other cultures together. As a small child in my area, there was a real sense of community. But there were outsiders like the sad Onion and Garlic in my short story. Some of these short stories have been published in the past or broadcast on the World Service.

However, the whole collection has never been published in continuity showing the childs growth and development.
