Pamela Mordecai draws delicately detailed portraits of life in Jamaica and other islands, with occasional trips to Canada. Her characters speak with the cadences of the Caribbean and cope with the universal experiences of birth and death, joy and betrayal.
Mordecai turns a sharp ear to the nuances of everyday speech, exposing the currents beneath the calm exterior and producing complex tales that will challenge and entertain her readers.
Pamela Mordecai was born in Jamaica and wrote her first poem at the age of nine. She has published over thirty books. She has a special interest in the writing of Caribbean women. She lives in Toronto with her husband, Martin.
