Merlene Thorpe

Cottage and Groves, St George
Bridgetown, Barbados


I cannot remember,when I could not read and before six years old I was quite fluent. However, my turbulent childhood caused me to become lost in the world of books. By my late teens I knew I wanted to be an artist, but with the white picket fence two point five kids and a cottage in the country ; I was thrown into the throes of motherhood. It wasn't until I was 29 years old, I was able to return to my former love of the artistic world.Within seven years, I made a uturn towards words,language and movement becoming an actor, performance poet, dancer and finally a writer.I soon stumbled upon the grim realization that publishers were not readily available and so Eureka Communications and Publishing materialized I have not turn back since.
