There are a lot of different kinds of writers, I’m sure you’ll agree with me. They come in all magnitude and personality and write about every single subject you can probably think of. There are always people out there to read what they create or come up with, especially if they know how to let their feelings and words flow. Writers have as their tools one of the most powerful things languages has given us, words. They can use them to make you cry or laugh, be happy or sad, commit a mishap or break the law, say nice things or shout in anger. They can even use them to make you kill someone unintentionally. Some writers are really good with words. They wrap you up in their storytelling from the beginning and don’t let you put them down until the end. Take Shakespeare, for example. He had the talent and power to walk you through his work, to make you act the part of certain characters of his, to repeat a lot of his sayings, which have practically turned themselves into proverbs, adages might be a better word. Agatha Christie and her crime stories, which have triggered several TV series under the name of CSI to fame, get you hyped up from the beginning with a zest to find out who committed the crime, and his or her motif for carrying it out. Novelists like Danielle Steel and Sydney Sheldon, two of the most famous modern-day writers, can entertain you in such a way that you’ll reread their storytelling time and again. They’re authors who can draw up a story and produce it flawlessly over a short period of time.

There are Myriad Kinds of Writers

Homer, Plato and Aristotle are legends in the way they relate their stories. Their style of long ago is still as intriguing as it was then when they produced their masterpieces. Philosophers of more modern time such as Hegel, Kant, Nietzsche, Descartes, and Schopenhauer all had the gift of writing things that impacted people. They were bold and daring in upholding their ideas etched in words. Wattles and Napoleon Hill with their success philosophy enlightened you with their writing so that you come out of the reading believing that you have earned much more than what their books cost you. Grisham and Crichton, although they have studied other fields, have dedicated their time to writing, telling stories that please. They write in such a way that their books become a page turner in your hands. Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize winner, possesses an art in writing down words so that they build up to an inevitable climax. Charles Dickens and his way of relating every little detail, even the wart that sticks out on someone’s nose, is just as alive and well-read as if he were still around today.

There are thousands of writers and their own creative styles that I’d like to mention here. However, it is not possible to do so at this point, so I’m going to leave a little space here for you to send me the name of your favorite writer who should be mentioned here. State his or her name and that of one of his works and a brief comment on their style of writing. We'll go out of our way to add it to the list.

Writers From Jamaica and Abroad

As a writer from Jamaica, I’m not deserved to be mentioned here for there are more important ones, much more important than I. Mr. Anthony C. Winkler is one of them. His books can be easily bought through amazon.com and if you look very closely, he has quite a few of them on the market. The Duppy is a one of a kind book written in that unique Jamaican style with patois embedded in English, and oh boy how I loved all the grinding that went on in the book. The Painted Canoe, The Lunatic and Dog War are other books by Mr. Winkler that will make you want to read them from beginning to end. Erna Brodber is another great novelist. Myal and Louisiana are proof of this. Opal Adisa is a great storyteller. Her Caribbean Passion, It Begins with Tears, and Painting Away Regrets are prime examples of good storytelling. Patricia Duncker has several sophisticated books in her possession. Among them we have Hallucinating Foucault, The Deadly Space Between, and Miss Webster and Cherif. Victor Headley is a great writer and his bestselling novel Yardie says it all. Marlon James’s John Crow’s Devil, Steven McDonald’s Supernova, Kei Miller’s The Same Earth, Patricia Powell’s The Pagoda, and Olive Senior’s Discerner of Hearts are all wonderful books that deserve more mention. I wish I had enough space to dedicate to them and all the rest that I’ve forgotten. Why don’t you send and let me know about all the good writers from Jamaica and around the world that need be mentioned here?
