Cecil Browne

I was born in St Vincent and the Grenadines and came to England to join my parents. I was Head of Maths at a Further Education college in West London for 10 years. A passionate Caribbean, I love cricket, soca, reggae, literature and Caribbean history. My short story, Coming Off the Long Run was published in So Many Islands, an anthology of writing from the Caribbean, Indian and Pacific, in London in 2018. I was the regional winner for Canada, the UK and Europe on the 2022 Commonwealth Short story prize.

Author news

I have published 3 books, The Moon is Following Me (2010), Feather Your Tingaling (2012), and am about to launch Cassie P Caribbean PI, the first in a series introducing Cassie Providence, the Caribbean's first female Private Investigator. A selection of reviews for my books The Moon is Following Me "Browne has a gift for creating memorable and appealing characters and for placing them in unlikely situations."¢ Maeve Tynan, Wasafiri "Browne delights in making his characters swim against the currents of their lives. He couples this with a deft turn of phrase and an eye for detail that makes otherwise commonplace moments sparkle." Ann Morgan, St Vincent & the Grenadines: journeys Feather Your Tingaling "Browne's use of folklore as a key thematic tool laces each story with an element of other-timeliness as well as contemporaneous relevance." Natsayi Sithole, Wasafiri
