Carroll Marston Edwards was born in Clarendon but received her secondary and tertiary education in Kingston at St. Hugh’s High School and at The University of the West Indies (The UWI), respectively. She also attended Carlton University in Ottawa, Canada.
Dr. Edwards, who is the Head of Marketing & Communication at The UWI, Mona Campus, describes her writing as a hobby – one which has resulted in gold, silver and bronze medals in the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) annual Creative Writing Competition. In 2006, she was named the Choice Writer of the competition.
Her short stories have appeared in the Observer’s Literary Arts Magazine, The Literary Arts Section in the Sunday Gleaner, Bearing Witness, and Calabash: A Journal of Caribbean Arts and Letters.
