I am delighted to announce the release of my second book of short stories - “Moonbeams from the Soul: A Collection of Fourteen Provocative Short Stories”!

From wild temptations to dangerous decisions, this is an eclectic assortment of thought-provoking short stories. Many thanks to Bestselling Bahamian Author Tanya R. Taylor for designing the beautiful cover and interior of the book for me.

In an article on, Michael Reeves writes about famous preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon who passed away January 31, 1892, in the southeast of France after 24 years of ill health. He was just 57 years old. Reeves says Spurgeon used to retreat to Menton near Nice in the winter months for health reasons.

Reeves relates how Spurgeon published some eighteen million words in his lifetime, selling over fifty-six million copies of his sermons in nearly forty languages. Spurgeon also read six books a week!

If Charles Spurgeon could do all that in his short lifetime, surely we can attempt if only a tiny minuscule of what Spurgeon achieved!

The Cayman Islands have also been doing a fantastic job, assisting with hurricane relief for Abaco and Grand Bahama. The Cayman Compass reported that British High Commissioner to the Bahamas Sarah Dickson said: “Within hours of Hurricane Dorian passing, the Cayman Islands government offered the RCIPS helicopter to the people of the Bahamas, and they have been such a valuable resource.”

In addition, the Cayman Red Cross is collecting funds and several banks and other organisations there are collecting donations.

And Cayman hospitals have sent medical supplies to The Bahamas:

WE WILL OVERCOME - #BahamasStrong

What an amazing sight on a rooftop here in Nassau, Bahamas, this morning - 13 Ibis on Friday, September 13th! Some might say this was a “sign”. I like to think it was an indication that Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands will bounce back even stronger from the deadly Cat 5 Hurricane Dorian that devastated those islands last week.

Although we didn’t get Hurricane Dorian in Nassau/New Providence we still felt the effects of beta bands from Hurricane Dorian with torrential rain and thunderstorms and flooding in low lying areas. But that was nothing compared to what the hurricane inflicted on the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama. So many on those islands have lost everything.

We have heard tragic first hand reports from evacuees of the hurricane ravaged islands as people escaped to New Providence. It is heart wrenching. There has been much activity on land, air and sea on and around New Providence with relief efforts for the devastated islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama and incoming evacuation of traumatized victims of Hurricane Dorian. Many have died and hundreds are still missing.

Bahamian and International communities and organizations are pulling together to help the victims of Hurricane Dorian. The UK and Denmark sent aid ships to help with relief. The U.S. sent search and rescue crews and helicopters to help with evacuations. The list of international help is too long to mention here, but there are international and local organizations that continue to feed thousands of evacuees on New Providence. They work in conjunction with NEMA (The Bahamas’ National Emergency Management Agency), which gives daily press conferences.

Last Sunday New Providence Community Church's service was held in the Andros Ballroom of the Baha Mar Convention Centre, as the church is being used for their Hurricane Dorian Relief Initiative. Many evacuees from Grand Bahama and Abaco were present at the moving service. The New Providence Community Centre on Blake Road, Nassau, is receiving donations from 7.30 a.m. - 8 p.m. daily. They also have a Call Centre set up to report missing persons in Abaco or Grand Bahama or to receive emergency relief - Tel. 698-CARE (2273). NPCC updates can be found on their Facebook page. Many other local churches and organizations have undertaken similar relief initiatives.

As power, water and communications begin to be reconnected to the afflicted islands, The Bahamas is determined to move on #BahamasStrong.
