Carolita’s first novel, The Cricket’s Serenade, published in 2006 by Genesis Press, deals with unchecked ambition, race, class differences and urequited love against the backdrop of the turbulent politics of Kingston, Jamaica in the late nineteen seventies.

When not writing novels, Carolita works behind the scenes on television shows.  She spends her summers worshipping the New York Yankees and her winters waiting for baseball season to come back around so she can continue worshiping those Yankees.  Her extended family keeps her grounded and her friends keep her smiling.
