Author Cheryl Monique is a secondary school teacher brought up in the Caribbean. Her upbringing in the Caribbean formed the basis for her debut book. She published her memoirs titled Yellow Bird: A Memoir Volume One recently.
Her father believed that his actions were the will of God. The story has been written in a skillfully concise and frank manner by the author.
