Deniz Onac
Local author. My most recent book, and the one that I shall be displaying, is 'The Colour of my Heart - a true story of hope, perseverance and love', published by Listening to your Voice Publishing, with ISBN number 9781838283858. However, it is a very unusual love story, set in Jamaica in the 1970's, where I was working at the time as a volunteer teacher. Currently available from the Amazon on-line bookstore, it has received many very positive reviews from readers in the UK, America, Canada, Jamaica, The Bahamas, and elsewhere.
