The Story Behind
Odes to the Multiverse.
I remember being ten years old and not being able to wrap my head around the notion of an entire universe originating from absolutely nothing. Decades later, I’m still mystified by the Big Bang Theory, but I’ve since discovered that imagining is far more entertaining than knowing. Odes to the Multiverse is a testament to that belief.
I grew up on the island of Jamaica and many of my stories were inspired by West Indian lore, speculative fiction movies and television, and classic sci-fi books I read during my youth. My stories celebrate the ageless art of storytelling and the multiverse of possibilities spawned by the human imagination.
