Toni Williams

Biography

I was born in the Eastern Caribbean island of Saint Lucia. Presently, I live in a picturesque mountain village, once a refuge for runaway slaves, where I'm finally able to do what I love most; creating worlds in my head and bringing them to life with my pen. Prior to that, I found this really hard to do because of the primal need to survive and pay the bills. On leaving high school I sought solace in journalism after coming to the sobering realization that the road to becoming a published author was going to be a long and arduous trek.

Along the way I got sidetracked and ended up managing a family-owned banana plantation. A few years later I jumped ship and returned to journalism, and became an editor for the Crusader newspaper in St. Lucia. I am a Reuters Fellow (Green Templeton College, Oxford University). Presently, I do mostly freelancing, including editing the St. Lucian lifestyle magazine, Dazzle. For the past five years I've been using my website, Caribbean Book Blog to provide writers and readers with updates on new books and useful information about new resources and opportunities for writers to publish and promote their work, as well as book reviews.
