A Florida Vacation to remember


In July 2017 my husband and I flew from Trinidad to Florida to meet my daughter and her family for two weeks of sheer fun and adventure. It was not our first visit to Florida. In fact, it had become an annual one. This time we drove for four hours to Tampa where we stayed at Sailport Waterfront Suites in North Rocky Point. The suites had all amenities with a view of the Bay and the pool, and we were quite comfortable there.

The hotel had exercise facilities too.


We did not stay in the hotel much, however. We had dinner at the Bahama Breeze Restaurant which was a few blocks away. The meals were sumptuous.


Busch Gardens was only twenty minutes away and we could not visit Tampa and not go there.


We also spent time with friends who lived close to the hotel.

On our way back to Hollywood we had lunch at Cracker Barrell in Fort Myers.

The next day we went to Lincoln Street on Miami Beach and had delicious pizzas at Pizza Cruschian.


Other delightful eating places were:

Twin Peaks Restaurant - Pembroke Pines.

Pearly’s Bar and Grill

Sweet Tomatoes

Taco Bell

Cheesecake Factory

Jason’s Deli

The highlight of the trip was the exciting football match at Hard Rock Stadium - PSG versus Juventus.


For more of my trips read Travel Memoirs with Pictures available at Amazon Universal Link.

She Cried for Me: Autobiography of a Dog


Hello friends,
I just returned from a wonderful vacation in Florida and found these lovely reviews for 'She Cried For Me: An Autobiography of a dog.

5 stars
Sweet Tale
ByReviewed.By.Me

Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From a dog's POV comes a touching tale of overcoming trauma and finding peace with a family she loved. For dog lovers and for everyone else who can appreciate a thoughtful short story.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am a dog lover and enjoyed this story very much.

I am a dog lover and enjoyed this story very much. We often forget that our pets have feelings too and they depend on us so much. A pleasant read that made me smile often!

5.0 out of 5 starsSweet, funny, touching and hard-hitting. A fitting tribute to a special dog.

By marmalizer on July 29, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition

This is a wonderfully touching and often funny memoir of a dog called Spikey, who was owned by the author of this story.
It is a quick read, but that doesn't mean there is no time for build-up or effective use of pacing.
Basically, anyone who has ever owned a pet (or been owned by the pet) will understand that for some reason, we were bound to be part of their lives. As animals generally live a shorter life than us as humans, it makes their presence all the more special. I also believe that if one does not have children of their own, or cannot have children for whatever reason, that a dog or a cat, or indeed any pet, can be elevated to a very special and unique status in their lives.
The story is clever and really gives you an insight into what this special dog thought about those around them, as well as their own worries and fears about things and situations they did not understand.
If you are an animal lover, or you appreciate that life is passing every single moment, or you believe that pets are not just pets - something to be discarded when they die, you will take something from this book. I will not say you will enjoy it - it hits home on many points that if you lost a pet recently, it may not be the time to read it. But the important thing to recognise is that this is a story with a heart as big as the dog at its centre, and if that doesn't convince you to read it today, nothing will.

These reviews made me very happy and I thank the readers who wrote them.
I will be writing a post about my vacation soon so look out for it.
Meanwhile please check out my books at Amazon.

This book should be in your library - Zeeka Chronicles

A strange - looking person turned up at the renowned Gosh Hospital in the scenic island of Gosh in the year 2036 and revealed information of a conspiracy to Dr.George Brown.
He claimed to be a zombie who reported to Master Zeeka.
But was he really a zombie?
Dr. Brown was suspicious of his motives, sedated him, left him in Room Nine, and called a meeting of the hospital doctors to discuss the conversation, which he recorded.
He referred to the stranger as Number Nine.
The stranger outsmarted Dr. Brown and disappeared causing the doctors with the exception of two, Dr. Raynor Sharpe and Dr. Mark Schmidt, to disbelieve what Dr. Brown told them. Together the three vowed to uncover the truth.
Did they?
Did they ever find out the identity of Number Nine?
A colourful sailor band with zombie- like persons at Carnival celebrations launched a fatal attack on innocent spectators later that year, confirming Number Nine's revelations.
Did Number Nine die in that attack?
Fingers were pointed at one man for the brutal attacks, but was he the real perpetrator?
Someone was seeking revenge for a long forgotten incident.
Who was that person?
One man knew Zeeka's secrets.
Would the authorities believe him or would they falsely accuse him?
Who was Zeeka?
The book comprises of five stories set in the future.
New technology and scientific breakthroughs in the field of medical science set the stage for the unimaginable, in this intriguing tale of kidnapping, love, lies, revenge, a ghost, a deadly virus, and sixty programmable zombies.
Even robots play major roles.
One reviewer described the book as 'Twilight Zone-like Sci-Fi Shorts that blend zombie lore with robots/hi-tech, futuristic, sci-fi themes and ideas.
He said 'fans of Twilight Zone and Outer Limits TV series episodes should find these shorts right up their alley.'
Zeeka Chronicles is a nominee for Metamorph's Publishing Summer Indie Book Awards 2017, in the category Science Fiction.

Read extracts of reviews for Zeeka Chronicles by readers as follows:

By Ian
'Twilight Zone-like Sci-Fi Shorts
'These are fun, highly imaginative tales that blend zombie lore with robots/hi-tech, futuristic, sci-fi themes and ideas.
Fans of Twilight Zone and Outer Limits TV series episodes should find these shorts right up their alley.'

By Amazon Customer:
'Zeeka Chronicles" is a highly compelling mixture of sci-fi, supernatural, and dystopian genres, which make it an even more interesting read. And the story of the zombie number nine, in the end, made just a perfect finale that put a big smile on my face.'

By Bookaholic
Brenda Mohammed writes in a number of genres and from her enthusiasm for each subject, the reader can tell that each book is a labour of love.
The Zeeka Chronicles is an Omnibus of the five Zeeka stories, an ideal collection for lovers of Zombies and horror stories.
A great strength of these stories is the diversity of interesting characters including the female lead, a detective and futuristic robots.
Each story within this Omnibus works well on its own and it is difficult to pick a favourite. The excitement builds with each story and the author succeeds in pulling the various strands together to offer a satisfying conclusion.
The Zeeka Chronicles is a thoughtful series and should delight fans of the genre. Brenda Mohammed is an author brimming with original ideas, an author to follow.'

By Reggie:
'Zeeka Chronicles is a horror story based on subject matter as relevant today as in the well-crafted, dystopian, science fiction created by author Brenda Mohammed.
The story is original, something I enjoy, and it is complete, something that most readers will appreciate. Solid entertainment. A five-star experience.'

M.R.
' Future Tech is highlighted throughout the series making me desire one of the book's robot helpers who does dishes and kicks butt too.'

A.J.
'The ending was amazing and I could envisage a bright future with advanced medical technology and robots as companions and helpers. This is a one of a kind book and one I would recommend that everyone should read.'
