My name is Wayne Blackwood. I was born and raised on the island of Jamaica. I lived most of my life in troubled East Kingston with my father and my late grandmother.

I went to Kingston College, an all-boys school in the heart of Jamaica’s Capital city. I went on to do a degree in Banking and Finance at the University of the West Indies.

For the last four years, I’ve been living and studying in Toulouse, France. This blog is a means for me to realise my dream of becoming an author. My main inspiration is James Baldwin and not because I’ve read all of his books. One day I may tell you why.

I’m a Sagittarius though I don’t know what that means. I believe myself to be a spontaneously chronic procrastinator. I am on this wonderful journey without really knowing where I will or want to end up. In the meantime, I’m just enjoying the ride.
