The Real Kimron Corion Present up and coming Creative writer and aspiring entrepreneur Amy Jones from Grenada and her first book of poetry entitled Beyond Fables: Poetry which was illustrated by Solanche Roberts.
Who is Amy Jones?
To begin, I’d state that I’m a 21 year old creative writer who’s been writing roughly for about 13 years. I started writing short stories and poetry in Primary School and I’ve never let go of it since.
I attended the Mileage Pre School, The St. Andrew’s Methodist School, the St. Joseph’s Convent, T.A.Marryshow Community College and I am presently preparing to further my studies in the Caribbean Nazarene College, Santa Cruz, Trinidad.
I am a member and young leader of the Grenada Girl Guides Association, a volunteer with the Grenada Education & Development Programme and also a member of the Writers’ Association of Grenada.
I am a seasoned performer; I have taken part in a few events, one of which is our annual “Voices” put together by the Writers Association of G’da (WAG)
My book is entitled, “Beyond Fables: Poetry” and as the name suggest, my work goes beyond the fantasies and fables and delves into real life experiences and situations of persons (mainly young women) written in the form of poetry.
Beyond Fables: Poetry was started about 4 years ago and was finally published in March 2014.
There are 13 poetic pieces in this anthology. The book is divided into 4 sections, they are: Encomiums to Mothers, Celebrating Strong Black Women, L.O.V.E, and the Struggles of Women.
Each section highlights issues as the names suggest. Early last month, June 2014, over 100 copies of Beyond Fables: Poetry was sold across the world. Books were bought, read and reviewed from small Caribbean Islands to large countries such as United States and China.
Although my choice of studies is Child Psychology and Counselling, I do see my writing continuing for as long as I have the ability to write. I am already working on my second book which is presently in the pipe line.
I have plans on doing audio copies of my books which may be available in the not so distant future.
My books are available on the following sites: Create space and Amazon.com
