THE PASSING OF BAHAMIAN PUBLISHED AUTHOR VERA CHASE



I was shocked and saddened to hear that published author and President of The Commonwealth Writers of The Bahamas Vera Chase had passed away. Vera and I shared our love of writing and she was always so supportive and encouraging to me.

She accomplished much in her lifetime. I just hope and pray that others will fulfill the dreams that she still had.

She worked hard at trying to establish a place here in Nassau where Family Island Junior Writers could stay when they came to Nassau and she also tried to get monetary and other support for her Pompey Project (a movie about "Pompey: A Slave’s Revolt (1830)").

Deepest condolences to her husband and family.
