About the Author

Yolanda Marshall was born in the garden city of Georgetown, Guyana. As a cross-genre writer, Miss Marshall silently commands you to read and digest life's cultural motions.

The oldest of three girls, she began writing poems at the age of 8. As daughter of a talented Guitarist, her lyrics manifest into poetry, like a genetic code. Poems such as "Serenaded in New York," "Delia Sings the Blues" and "Single Rose" flow on a mellow Jazz -like note.

The name of her first book, Obayifo, originates from the Ashanti tribe. It is the name given to an African Witch. The poem visits the works of Obeah, its people and fears. Miss Marshall's dynamic ability to address matters of the heart are limitless. One all time favourite remains, "Train Ride To Babylon", Miss Marshall questions religion, as she explores the mind of an experienced older woman - offering her reader a glimpse into the life of a black woman's struggles with poverty within a commercialized society.

Yolanda T. Marshall is currently a business analyst and a mother of one based in Canada.
