The story is based on my real life experiences, growing up on the Island of Jamaica, using fictional characters, to show you how I grew up. Melvin The Mischievous Mongoose, is a character that reveals the different periods of his early life, as he learns about himself, as well as others around him.
My life has always been filled with drama and despair for as long as I could remember. Born from the Island of Jamaica, I migrated to the US in the early 90’s at at the age of 10. I settled in the Westchester, New York area, where I grew up and matured into the person I am today. I graduated from Ossining High School in 2000 and went on to Mercy College where I graduated with a Degree in Journalism/Media. During my time at Mercy College, I found and developed my passion for writing. I currently work with children as an ESL teacher. My ultimate goal in the near future is to utilize my creativity and expand it through all forms of art. Whether its screenplay writing, poetry, children books, short stories, memoirs, or novels, my intentions are to provide you with clips of my life that will paint the perfect picture.
