  Born to Panamanian mother and a Jamaican father the blend has produced an author with an intriguing mind and an interesting personality,quite a powerful yet unassuming lady.

She grew up for the first 5 years with her mother’s mother in the small rural district called Roslyn, a district now dead. It has lost its glory and fame of years gone by as the liveliest district in Hanover before the 1950’s.

Fame gained from the many young men who once visited from adjoining districts especially on Saturdays and Sundays because it is said that the district had the prettiest girls found no where else in Hanover. For this reason many cricket matches were hosted in Roslyn up to the early 50’s.

Soy Criada was christened Juliet Christie but later added the name Murray When she married in her late twenties and moved to Sandy Bay

She left Roslyn in 1956. At age five her grandmother who was ill and felt unable to take care of her brought her to a cross road and gave her the choice to choose any she wished.

One would have taken her to the town of Lucea to live with her Father’s mother, the other to Johnson Town to her mother’s uncle. She said she chose Johnson town; because the house was huge, but her other grandmother lived in one room in a tenement yard. The house where she lives before had five rooms and a big very yard.

The Jamaican author says making that choice was easy but later she realized that she had walked into a dreadful situation when she lived with this couple and their two granddaughters. She had a near almost Cinderella experience with the exception of Prince charming to the rescue.

Her prince charming did materialize at age 19 with the missing” live happily ever after ending". By then she was a single mother with all the responsibilities of a single parent. She was determined that her child should not suffer as she did ;never knowing her father and not knowing her mother until age 28.

Soy Criada a born Jamaican

She said she is still proud she had made that choice that day and believed it to have been the right one. She learned a number of skills including cooking baking and sewing, as she had to sew her own clothes at an early age of 14 and took over the chores of cooking and house management very early. She said that these, laid the foundation of her becoming a Home Economics teacher in later years.

a young woman she had good manners respect to her elders and a strong love for God. These opened many opportunities when as a single mother things got rough and she needed help. She worked as a clerk in stores and got holiday jobs in a few government agencies all because of these.

One of the most rewarding jobs for this black Jamaican author was when she worked for one year as an apprentice in a photo shop where she took and cleaned pictures. Pretty soon she became so good at it that one day the boss commented “ Gal you a get betta than me.”

With the determination to make something worthwhile of her life,  she left that job when her evening classes paid off. She took up her first teaching appointment in 1970 at Lucea Primary. She continued to upgrade herself by working and studying. She has worked herself up to the position of Vice principal in a prominent Jamaican school and is the proud recipient of certificates, diplomas, degrees, and awards both in education and poetry.

The latter she ventured in 2002 In January 2008 she acted as Acting Principal of The Sandy Bay Primary and Junior High while the principal was on Vacation leave.

The Jamaican author now gives back to Jamaica and Jamaicans in the form of two of the greatest inspirational Jamaican books ever written,which can be added to Jamaica's literature collection.
To the world she give recipes and articles on various websites and blogs.

To Peace

Quietly nestling in a tree
Branches hurling in the breeze
Raging river tossing below
A little bird sits in peace
And yet the big wide world blows

True peace comes from deep within
And not by world leaders defined
Now war rages on every side
Prophesied in Mathew’s lines
As natural signs of the end time.

Light now all a candle of peace
Born within the heart of every man
If I am at peace with myself
And he is at peace with his self
There can certainly be no war

How many houses can I live in
. How many cows can I consume
How much land can I be buried on
How much oil do I need to light
An eternal flame to peace and love.

Others who are more adventurous or advanced may wish to experiment with others styles. Such as these more modern forms. Dub, Analysis, Prose Slam, and Spoken Word. The art is usually written in lines and verses otherwise referred to as stanza which captures images vividly in an original refreshing way. At the same time it combines elements like theme, tension, complex emotions and profoundly reflects thought. It incorporates sound and a most important element called rhythm ,which in most cases is achieved by arranging lines into meters. One of the skills of mastering this art is the ability of a poet to use figure of speech to give vivid images of the theme.
