WHEN IN JAMAICA…DO AS THE JAMAICANS DO…

Colin Channer…

(born 13 October 1963) is a Jamaican writer, often referred to as “Bob Marley with a pen,” due to the spiritual, sensual, social themes presented from a literary Jamaican perspective. Indeed, his first two full-length novels, Waiting in Vain and Satisfy My Soul, bear the titles of well known Marley songs. He has also written the short story collection Passing Through, and the novellas I’m Still Waiting and The Girl with the Golden Shoes. Some of his short stories have been anthologized.

Channer currently resides in Brooklyn, NY with his family.
