Blogger’s bio

I am an Antiguan and Barbudan writer and the Wadadli Youth Pen Prize is a passion project I launched back in 2004. For more on me, my books (Musical Youth 2nd placed for the 2014 Burt Award for Young Adult Caribbean Fiction, The Boy from Willow Bend, Dancing Nude in the Moonlight, Oh Gad!  – a 2014 Weekend Reads pick on NPR), my other publications, my interviews and reviews, my writing and editing services, and my Antigua and Barbuda, and other things I like, visit my personal page (http://jhohadli.wordpress.com). To keep up with my activities, you can also ‘like’ my facebook author page (http://www.facebook.com/JoanneCHillhouse).

SECOND BONUS (added December 18 2011): this interview with Trinidadian poet and artist Danielle Boodoo-Fortune when she quizzed me as part of a grad school assignment.
