Author and Publisher From Jamaica

Ever since I was a young boy in Jamaica, Caribbean, during my first days in middle school, I began dreaming about writing books, about creating a name behind author wadehilton through effective storytelling. I wanted to become a novelist, or should I say an author? It doesn’t really matter, for any of the two fits in perfectly well with this wonderful website I’ve created for you. The idea of writing never left me as the days turned into weeks, and then months. But what was I to do to achieve my goal? I had no one to turn to because most of my friends and relatives, the ones with whom I shared the idea, thought that it was too early for me to decide on the career I wanted to pursue. None of the other kids knew what they wanted yet, most of them would say, so why not run along and wait until you’re certain of what you want? Perhaps after high school or in college when you’re older, one of my favorite teachers suggested. It hurt. But as the days went by, the thought of writing became bigger and more dominant in my mind. It wouldn’t leave me, wouldn't let me go. There was nothing I could do to resist it, although sometimes along the way I couldn’t help but thinking they might be right. I should wait until I was more mature, at least after I finished middle school. Why don’t you read then, a voice deep inside of me began to echo, to reverberate? It would be a good idea for you to start building an insightful vocabulary, getting to know the styles of other authors, learning all the grammatical rules there were, the different kinds of sentences and paragraphs that could be found, and how to construct them in order to accomplish my goal of writing something.

My Love For Books

So it was thus that I got involved with books. They would become the center of my life and just before I finished middle school, I had hundreds of them tucked away under my wings. Reading had become a pastime of mine. I just couldn’t seem to stop doing it, stop reading whatever I laid my hands on. I started visiting our local library, buying as many books as I could at all the used bookstores around town, borrowing from friends and relatives as I devoured them one by one. Great authors such as Shakespeare, Chaucer, Donne, Cervantes, Nietzsche, Dostoyevsky, Homer, Plato, Stevenson, Joyce, Hegel, Austen, Dickens, Shaw, Christie, Lawrence, Eliot, Fitzgerald, Fowles, Hemingway, Kipling, Milton, Orwell, Wilde, Ortega y Gasset, Garcia Marquez, Steinbeck, Tolkien, Tolstoy, and the list went on, had a lot of influence on me, as I began reading every book I could come across. Books and the art of reading and benefiting from them became a part of my life.

There was no stopping me now from reading for I got a scholarship to attend the Baltimore Polytechnic high school in Baltimore, Maryland, USA and soon found out that books, journals, comics, magazines and even newspapers were readily available anywhere you turned. I started collecting them as scores of American writers became accessible to me. I devoured Mencken and Thoreau and Steele and Sheldon, Maya Angelou, Ray Bradbury, T. S. Eliot, Ralph Waldo Emerson, William Faulkner, O. Henry, Jack London, Kurt Vonnegut, John Updike, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and when I got to Napoleon Hill, his success philosophy made me see that if it were writing I wanted I could get it.

Loyola Led Me Right Back To Jamaica

By the time I got to college, Loyola College it was called at the time—years later it became Loyola University Maryland—I was reading three or four books per week and sometimes even five if they were short. This began to heighten my interest even more in writing and before the end of my freshman year I started Gwen & Gwenette. Most of my friends and colleagues on campus didn’t hesitate to make fun of me by calling the book the uncommon proposal. It didn’t really matter to me because by then I knew I was bound to become a writer, as I jotted down dozens of ideas on notepads, from which I finally wrote Goddess of the Arawaks, Gloria Grand, Success For All, based on Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, and Like Father Like Son. Today I have more than eleven books on the market, eight of which I’m currently publishing and distributing from my company, WadeRoss Publishing, which I created to produce my books.

At present, I’m dedicating my time to promoting reading through my books from my beloved country, Jamaica, where I’ve set up a workshop to help young writers around the Caribbean and the world develop their talents and carry out their dreams of getting published, or should I say becoming a writer. I’ve also gotten tied up with the hotel industry because of the last name Hilton and the link to my page called Jamaica and tons of people look to me for information on how to take vacation, especially all-inclusive vacations, on this sunny little paradise, or find airlines and travel agencies, or buy Jamaican products and foods, or get recipes to savor our cooking, or simply listen to and enjoy Reggae music. There’s so much to see in attractive Jamaica and so many ways to go about it that there are no excuse to come and visit us. There are cruisers, boats and ships to the island daily and there are connecting flights from many cities around the world.

Everybody wants to come to the island in the sun whether it is to sunbathe, fish, swim, dance, go snorkeling, scuba diving or savoring our cuisine and the excellent array of fine rums we offer. I’m so happy I can work with the Jamaican Tourist Board and Caricom to help make more people enjoy the country and at the same time promote my books and my passion, reading. By the way, how many books have you read so far this year? Relate to me the most interesting one you liked and why?
