About Jacqueline Grant

My passions are history and writing. I spend most of my time researching books I am planning to write or actually writing them. I have a PhD in Caribbean and Latin American history and I teach 11th and 12th grade students at a private college prep school in Reno.

I was born on the island of Jamaica and many of my stories are set in the Caribbean or have Caribbean themes. But I also write about lots of other things and I'm particularly fond of stories that help children see their value and stories that just plain make people giggle. I hope you enjoy reading Gunga Peas Books.

Review by: Khrystine Kelsey on Aug. 27, 2011 :
This was a pretty good book. I definitely learned some things I didn't know. However, it didn't seem to go very deep and it wasn't fabulously written. I realize its aimed at young readers, but it sort of felt like the writer said, "First this happened. Then this happened." It's definitely a good book and makes a good reference, but its not amazing.

Review by: Nathan Wingert on Aug. 26, 2011 : (no rating)
Dancing on the Day of Kings is a book for children explaining the Day of Kings and Latin American culture. Even as an adult, I didn't know what the Day of Kings is, so there's something for everybody. Jacqueline Kent even underlines vocabulary words so children can enhance their vocabulary.
