ETHEREAL VOICES offers a scintillating and thought-provoking selection of short stories and poems with an eclectic, trans-Atlantic, Caribbean flavour. The author's gift at writing transports the reader to the flavours, smells, cultures, social mores and climate of that country. In three of the stories, the protagonist, Pearl, in "Sister, Sister", is left behind in Jamaica while her parents and baby sister move to England in the 1960's in search of a better life; the young girl in "The Devil and Lola" knows nothing about life; Ibrahim in "Beach Walk" falls in love with a pretty tourist in the Gambia; and, in "Judy", Judy herself realizes life is full of strange twists. Shona Jabang is a Jamaican-American. She is a language arts teacher at an American high school in the UK as well as a part-time writing instructor with the University of Maryland University College (UMUC - Europe). Shona originally grew up in the UK but has lived in Jamaica, Canada, and the US. She now lives in East Anglia, England.
