A true International Voice as authentic as they come, I was raised in England (Midlands to be exact!) by a pair of Jamaican parents. With strict do’s and don’ts and a little Jamaican “brought-upsy” I traveled to the US in my teens and found myself living in Chicago, San Francisco, Berkeley and Los Angeles with a stint in London somewhere in the middle of … Read More Don’t Mind the Gap – Let me bridge it...
A true International Voice as authentic as they come, I was raised in England (Midlands to be exact!) by a pair of Jamaican parents. With strict do’s and don’ts and a little Jamaican “brought-upsy” I traveled to the US in my teens and found myself living in Chicago, San Francisco, Berkeley and Los Angeles with a stint in London somewhere in the middle of that!
I have spent my life moving between people, bringing them together and helping people from different backgrounds communicate and understand each other. This is what makes me stand out from the crowd, my versatility and acting.
It’s been my life to shift to what is needed, like a chameleon I blend in with my husband’s family in the Southern Midwest (Indiana!), and float from city to city in the States and the UK studying dialect and nuance of regional vernacular.
all performers need to save cash
Hey, let’s face it all performers need to save cash…
I love hunting down discount codes. I will add them as I find them
I just saved a ton (30%) with IMDbPro with this code for SAG-Aftra members: SAGAFTRAdiscount — You can too!
As a performer we have to keep our skin healthy. Personally I like a few products at L’occitane. If you want to save a couple bucks, use this link to get $20 off your purchase

If you ever wanted to try a service like audible you may have been put off by the commitment. Let’s face it. Who wants to commit to something you may not enjoy. Or maybe you’re on a budget, and you’re trying to make the pennies stretch. Well, there is a way to get free audiobooks. Here’s how:
If you just want to try one out Audible and many audiobook publishers will give you a free book – once. Yes. If you have never actually listened to an audiobook and want to try it out this is a great way to start. Click here for a free trial.
However, say you already have a membership and you want to listen to a new book, but you’re out of credits? Well, hundreds of independent authors publish on Audible. They often are able to give a free copy to folks open to reviewing the book after. Yes, you have to take a few minutes after you have listened to review it, but nine times out of ten, it’s well worth it.

Well as you well know, my family is Jamaican and there is nothing like a sit-down, a little ginger cake and a cup of tea, to bring my world into harmony. (How colonial British can you get!?)

Well as you well know, my family is Jamaican and there is nothing like a sit-down, a little ginger cake and a cup of tea, to bring my world into harmony. (How colonial British can you get!?)
So I made this cake for my family this Christmas and it was a hit. I think I will be making another soon, and freezing a couple for quick afternoon treats. Nothing like it when it’s raining and all you want is a little Jamaican heat and sunshine!
(This all American measurements…)
2 cups plain flour
1 tsp ground ginger
1″ stem ginger
1½ tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp of ground cloves
1/8 tsp of ground allspice
3/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
5 tbsp milk
1/2 cup & 1 tbsp butter (Best with butter, but you can also use coconut oil)
1/3 cup & 1 tbsp black treacle
1/3 cup & 1 tbsp golden syrup
1/4 loosely packed cup dark soft brown sugar (or muscavado sugar or coconut sugar)
1/2 cup water
2 eggs, lightly beaten
Preheat the oven to 325°F
Grease a large loaf tin with butter or hard margarine. Line the tin (both the bottom and sides) with baking parchment. Butter parchment also.
In a large bowl sift together the flour, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground allspice, ground cloves and ground nutmeg.
In a small bowl mix together the bicarbonate of soda and the milk.
Chop the stem ginger – I use an immersion blender attachment, but this can be done by hand.
In a medium saucepan, melt and mix together the butter, black treacle, golden syrup, sugar, chopped stem ginger and water. Do not let the mixture boil. allow to cool for a few minutes.
Using the paddle attachment in your mixer set to low speed (or a wooden spoon by hand) add the melted syrup mix to the flour and spices and stir in well.
Mix in the eggs a little at a time until combined.
Please note all these stages look a bit dodgy, but keep to the recipe and all will be fine.
Then add the milk & bicarb mix, and stir this in as well.
Pour the mixture into the tin.
Bake in the center rack for about 1 hr 15 mins – 1 hr 45 mins. Test with a toothpick for a light crumb bake.
Cool the cake in the tin for a few minutes, then remove and cool on a wire rack.
