Creator / Anthony Winkler

Anthony C. Winkler (25 February 1942 18 September 2015) was a Jamaican-born author, lecturer, freelance writer, playwright and screenwriter.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, 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.
