#WhyIWrite: Book 6 by Author Denise N. Fyffe

After proving myself in poetry publishing, I wanted to venture into another avenue of writing; but then, I realized, I have been doing that for many years. I am a blogger and freelance writer. I had a website with hundreds of articles about my island home Jamaica.

Not only that, it was Jamaica 50; our 50th anniversary as an independent state from Britain. So, I decided to mine my articles and create a book about Jamaican culture, food, sports, music (Bob Marley), recipes and poetry…since we became an independent nation. As such, The Island Journal: Jamaica’s Golden Year, was produced.

I say published, because I have written nearly twice as many, and they are sitting on my hard drive gathering virtual dust.
