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!
