My novels are inspired by joy, deep concerns, and the desire to entertain as well as educate.
While this novel's intriguing story of exotic international romance draws readers into an exciting game of love and lust, the story touches on a real-life drama playing itself out - drug trafficking in the Caribbean and serious economic issues in Greece that fuel this trade.
List price: $19.95: eBook $6.99 - Amazon.com
PASSENGER FROM GREECE: The rising tide of drug trafficking in the Caribbean became the inspiration behind my novel, Passenger from Greece, in which I tell an important but also intriguing story of love, lust, and criminal behavior affecting entire countries and destroying lives. While this novel is at its basis a cautionary tale about love-gone-wrong, it also touches on deception at the deepest level. It exposes the fact that familial relationships, flawed characters, secrets and lies can destroy lives and create deeply felt wounds.
Enjoy intriguing and exotic journeys to the Caribbean, Europe, and the United States with Norma Jennings, your exciting and gifted international author.
Daughter of the Caribbean
"Like all writers of original and cultural genius, Norma Jennings awakens our minds and soul in her story of Jamaica, as Bob Marley has with Jamaican reggae music."
- Professor J.B. "Peanuts" Taylor, Nassau, Bahamas
List price: Price varies on Amazon.com and in select bookstores.
DAUGHTER OF THE CARIBBEAN: The deaths of my mother and father within 7 months of each other inspired me to write this novel, which describes the challenges of life as an immigrant in the United States, while nurturing strong cultural and emotional ties to the sweetly exotic island of my birth, and to Twickenham, the old sugarcane plantation on which I was raised.
MAROONED: I was inspired by a recent article in The Gleaner, which talked about the British Prime Minister traveling to Jamaica, and almost demanding that the Jamaican Prime Minister allow him to build a prison on the island so he could send Jamaican expatriate prisoners there from England, because they were "not the responsibility of the British tax payers." After muffling a scream, I sat down to write MAROONED, because the world needed to know how the island developed its ties to England, and that Jamaica is more than beautiful beaches, Bob Marley, and Usain Bolt. So I captured and shared the defiant spirit of the Jamaican Maroons, who viciously fought against British domination and won their wars for independence nearly 40 years before the U.S. achieved independence from England.
A riveting historical tale about the defiant spirit and determination of the Jamaican Maroons, a people who refused to be marginalized by British domination. Coming your way soon!
