HOLLYWOOD, FL—When Olivia Williams talks about Dominica it’s sheer superlatives and adjectives. Ooh’s and aah’s followed by words like “amazing”, “impressive” and “wonderful”. Olivia’s genuine love for Dominica and the excitement that fills her every time she talks about the island give the superlatives and adjectives a certain sincerity and honesty that makes you want to visit. She poured her connection to the island into a book.
“Poetic Island” is a collection of short stories from her life on the Island; it was released on January 4, 2011 with an Official Book Launching event in Roseau, Dominica. “Dominica is a diamond in the rough and with my stories I give readers a personal perspective to the island. This is not a tourist guide, but a perspective by someone who truly loves the island. When someone recommends that a visitor go to Victoria Falls, my book tells them about the people whose land you have to cross to get there. I pinpoint those personal things, to bring a personal feel to the island,” she says. cont./
