  1. It’s a pleasure to meet you Denise. I found your blog via your superb review on Donna Hill’s “The Heart of Applebutter Hill” book. I’m so glad I found you as Jamaica has always intrigued and I’m hoping I can learn more about the island here. ~Steph

    I have recently started a new blog http://everydaypeopleoftheworld.wordpress.com/ and come across your blog I think that you are someone who would be excellent to feature.
    The aim behind this site as a result is to conduct a short interview with a variety of people to show people throughout the world’s hopes, fears, loves and hates. Who are these 7-billion people who inhabit this rock going round the sun? What do we all have in common? What difficulties can we all face together?
    In my simple mind, the more we learn about each other, the more we highlight that we’re all just people then the less chance there is that we’ll turn guns and words of hate upon on another. It’s a simple dream, but we have a lot of people so let’s get started………
    If you’d like to feature on the site, then please get in touch via the contact page.’
    Do you think this is something you or anyone you know would be interested in? The idea is not for profit in anyway, the simple aim is to break some stigma and stereotypes.
    Many thanks for reading
    Claire Allen
