I did like him just fine, but when I met Creigh, that was it. I might even say-“love at first sight,” with his cool dark complexion! “I now think though that it may have been his “Charles” cologne that first got to me-I’m quite gullible to a good smelling man! And, those pearly white teeth! Ooh, that there would get a girl come running!” –“For a moment there, I went back into myself! Let me stop-ahahahahaha!!!”
The book is a drama, set in the island of Jamaica, West Indies. The story began in Montego Bay. I believe that you will thoroughly enjoy reading this novel about love, poetry, abuse, incest, being in crisis as a teenager; running away, then stowing-away to USA.

I enjoyed writing this book because I approach it with a fresh style of writing, and incorporated some of the Jamaican dialect into the script to give a bit of island flavor. The characters are distinguished by the roles each played in the story. Some of the content is very hilarious, while other parts become tear-jerking.

I speak directly to my audience-drawing you into my story, and allowing you to experience each of my “pauses” with her. I’m inviting you to take a moment to analyze and identify “pauses” in your own lives, as well as showing exactly how moods affect results. These “pauses that I refers to at the end of each episode, may causes you to reflect back to your own experiences that you may have palliated.

I hope my novel “Who, Put You, On Pause!?” -With its’ oxymoron punctuation marks ending the title- will appeal to you-my readers, and you will appreciate its newness like a “breath of fresh air.”

My mission was to present to you a “Literary Masterpiece” of some of my experiences. I hope you’ll find my work Exemplary.

Thank you for your support! Now, go enjoy reading this book!

    This is an endearing real life account of (and by) a young Jamaican girl while she is in hiding from her father, police, and anyone trying to take her back home. At a surprisingly intimate level, the book reveals how one of many Jamaican young child tries to cope with everyday day happings and have to grow up faster than her time. For Hopey her food is scarce, facilities are rare and the outdoors are out of bounds for this young little girl. Amidst these bleak circumstances Hopey tries to keep her spirits up by occupying herself in such constructive activities as her limited means will allow. She dreams of a bright, happy future and prepares herself for it. But her youth and liveliness are under cover and they face the constant threat of exposure... My Thoughts: I loved the book. I cried after finishing it. For someone who has been born and brought up in peaceful times, realization of the stark cruelty of past of this young girl can have a sobering effect. The book conveys this reality like a wet sock on the face. It was amazing a must read!!!!!

    I highly recommend this book!

    I began reading Who Put You On Pause, on a Thursday evening, and I was elated-I couldn't put the book down! I finished reading it by Saturday evening! I enjoyed every minute of it. It was an easy to read book, and it flowed. I couldn't wait to go to the next episode. I felt that I was at the places the writer spoke about. Despite her hardships, she showed resilience in overcoming the many obstacles she faced.
