About the Author

Norma Jennings was born and raised on the Caribbean island of Jamaica in the West Indies. From an exotic multi-ethnic background of black, white and East Indian descent, two strong and dynamic women and a remarkably intelligent and adventurous father influenced her.

Ms. Jennings migrated to the United States in the early 1970s, where she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Angelo State University and graduated from the Management Development Program at Harvard Graduate School. She built a successful career as corporate executive in the hotel, education, banking and health care industries and has specialized training and experience in recruitment, employee relations, compensation, employee benefits, information technology and labor and immigration laws.

Ms. Jennings has three grown and productive children, and enjoys dual citizenship in both Jamaica and the United States. She stays close to the old estate she inherited in Jamaica, her beloved Twickenham. She is currently working on her second book.

Knowledgeable in the history, politics and issues of the West Indies, Ms. Jennings is also a qualified speaker and presenter on topics, including Strong, Powerful Women of the West Indies – Their History and Struggles; West Indian Politics, Passions and Issues; A Jamaican’s Experience in the United States; and Living a Life of Art and Passion as a Writer and Women’s Advocate.
