About the Author:

Veronica Sutherland is a Jamaican, who has lived in Jamaica all her life except for a brief stint studying in the United States of America. Veronica has lived in several areas of Jamaica and of such has been exposed to the varied aspects of Jamaican culture. Her early years were spent at the feet of her maternal grandparents from whom she learnt many things about Jamaican life, including Jamaican proverbs. This book of Jamaican proverbs is a natural outflow of Veronica’s knowledge of and fascination with her beloved homeland.
