the journey that lead her to teaching. Through this melding of worlds, she’s
received certification in “Strategies for Dealing with Low Self Esteem in

Keri A. Kitson

Keri’s Amazon author page has pictures of all 5 books, namely: ‘ Estrel, Alyssa, The Rainbow Connection’, The Tree Tales’ and ‘The Sea Tales’.

Keri Amanda Kitson is a bona fide water baby with an addiction to cheese and a love of roti. She has a weakness for Korean dramas and is also a pushover for old classic movies made between the 1930s and the 1960s. Her sporty side likes to snap pictures while out swimming or snorkeling in the Caribbean sea as she currently resides in the Island of Trinidad.

Given her penchant for popping in and out of various places, it comes as no surprise that she became a Level 7 Local Google Guide. During moments of nostalgia, she dusts off her treasure trove of memories and reviews her pictures at https://maps.app.goo.gl/YexaTthWxgTctyfR7. Her current adventures takes place online, as she adapts to the nifty world of online meetings which enables her to be in two different locations at the same time.

In terms of her writing style, Keri leans towards the genre of magical realism and she continues to work on perfecting her craft. To date, Keri has written and published three YA fiction books and two children’s books. Her first YA book ‘Estrel’ was published in 2012. In or around March 19th 2016, her second YA book ‘Alyssa’ was launched at the Metropolitan Book Suppliers Limited in Trinidad. By March 2020, she completed her second children’s book ‘The Sea Tales.’ Her final book in the YA fiction Estrel series, namely: ‘The Rainbow Connection’ was published in August 2020.

Keri remains grateful to all of her fans and supporters who have stuck with her during her journey. She hopes that ‘The Rainbow Connection’ was well worth the wait for those ‘Estrel’ fans who consistently clamoured to see how the series would end.

Keri’s books are available on ebook format from Amazon.com. The hard copies are typically available at Metropolitan Book Suppliers Limited on Ariapita Avenue, Woodbrook. My audiobook for ‘The Sea Tales’ is on Amazon.com and Audible. Books are also sold by me directly. Persons have to contact me via my writer’s email keriakitson@outlook.com.

Rev. Fr. Dr. Lionel Richards

Rev. Fr. Dr. Lionel Caswall Theophilus Richards born to Simon and Jane Ann Richards. Although his birth added only one to the world’s population of 2.44 billion persons. It was significant that it occurred when the only four-term President Franklyn Delano Roosevelt served the United States and Mohandas Karachand (Mahatman( Gandhi was released from prison. Diana Ross “Endless Love” would have been as delightfully rendered with Lionel Richards her year-mate as with Lionel Richie her Junior.

Tristan Walker

Author of Another Last Chance

My name is Mickeal Walker, pen name, Tristan Walker. I am a Trinidadian author who resides in the Enterprise Chaguanas community, located in central Trinidad. I am Thirty-two years of age and I am also a police officer and the single father of three beautiful daughters. My daughters are my motivation, not only to write, but to show that I can be a great role model. I have written my first self-published novel, “Another Last Chance” in March of 2018, and my second novel, “Creative Justice” was written in September 2019. Both novels are of the crime fiction genre and is based in Trinidad and Tobago. I am hoping that my commitment to be an author, despite the challenges the country is facing with crime can show young persons that with hard work and determination, dreams can come true.

A riveting story of one man’s race to prove his innocence after being set up for a series of crimes he did not commit…
