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 Dec. 10, 2011 :
This is an excellent book for older children (8-12 range). It is neither "dumbed down" nor too graphic and is very educational. I have recently read a history of this time period for adults, and I still learned something.

Review by: Kath Richardson on Nov. 04, 2011 :
This book was an easy swift read on the Caribbean. It would have benefited from pictures but offered a good view of sugar farming in the Caribbean.

I'm not entirely clear which age group this was aimed at (note we don't all understand US grade references) so found it a bit simplistic although that might have been age-appropriate.
