Joan Williams, a US resident, hails from Jamaica, was educated in Canada, USA and Jamaica, and holds a BSc in Economics. She has over the years been involved in Public Relations, Business, Media, Politics and Real Estate in Jamaica and worked for many years as a workshop/seminar planner throughout the English Speaking Caribbean. It was however her passion for writing that saw Ms. Williams becoming a columnist at one time or the other in Jamaica for the Gleaner, Star, Jamaica Observer, Money Index, Daily News as well as for the Miami based Caribbean Today and the Amnesty International magazine. Because of her biting written commentaries, she was also invited to do after news radio commentaries at the now defunct Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation (JBC) in the afternoons. She has authored ten books to date, beginning with the popular "Back A Yard" series in the early nineties. This series which contained six volumes was a satirical review of Jamaican politics. In 1993, she wrote the first of hilarious Original Dancehall Dictionary series, which explains and defines the popular words and phrases being constantly developed by young people in the music arena. The sixth edition is now available and is a best seller. Because she is constantly overwhelmed by the natural beauty of her country, Jamaica, In 1995 she wrote the first "Tour Jamaica" which is a comprehensive travel guide covering everything from the arts to the wildlife and she even included a Jamaican dictionary. The 4th edition of this useful publication is now available in both paperback and ebook.. Her publication, "Looking Back, the struggle to preserve our freedoms" gives an excellent overview of the 70’s, when there was an "undeclared civil war" in Jamaica. This, because the cold war had spilled over to the small island of Jamaica forcing Ms. Williams to become an active participant in politics at that time. In Hidden Gems of Jamaica, Williams is again highlighting the natural beauty of Jamaica but this time introducing readers to new and less well known beauty spots to which she has mostly hiked or ridden over the years. When not writing, Williams remains an avid outdoor person who spends her time in Jamaica hiking and cycling and when overseas, reveling in the company of family, especially her grandchildren or pursuing her main passion -travelling to new places.
