Creator / Anthony Winkler

Anthony C. Winkler is a Jamaican-born author, lecturer, freelance writer, playwright and screenwriter who currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1942, he attended school in Kingston and then in Montego Bay, St. James, and later received Bachelor's and Master's degrees in English at California State University in Los Angeles.

His fiction writing's settings are always in Jamaica, though the exact locations and the characters who live in them differ with each plot. Each story paints a picture of Jamaica during the time period in which the story is set, and illustrates the various social, racial and class divides that exist(ed) among Jamaica's people, particularly between the 1950s and 1970s.
