Nicola Tamara Arthurs


I'm everything from a full time writer to an amateur chef, doting aunt, sarcastic and overly creative mind, mischievous but great friend, the world's best daughter, sister and niece, as well as an unfortunate soul suffering from allergy to sleep!

Oh yea, I hail from Jamaica, probably read too much and I get bored easily. I also love the internet almost as much as I love food (which is A LOT) and hope to never work another "day job" ever again!

Many are quick to judge the victims of domestic abuse who remain but, while no one should endure these circumstances, the answer isn't always as simple as stay or leave. This is an understanding that a mother of two finds herself grappling with after being touched by the story of Jane, a woman she may never meet. What's worse is that Jane forces her to confront the buried shame of her own past.

A harsh childhood in a rural Jamaican community leads a fifteen-year-old girl to run away to the city for a new life. What she finds when she arrives is a sad reminder of the ugly underbelly of ghetto life and the fact that many rural to urban migrants are poorly informed about the stark uptown/downtown division of Kingston. In short, sometimes "country come to town" goes horribly wrong!
