About the author (2011)

My name is Rohan Dwight Brown, born in St. Catherine Jamaica on the 15 day of January 1973. I am the fifth of eight children for mother Corine Mills and the seventh of twelve for my father James Brown. I went to the Ginger Ridge All Age School and then the St. Catherine High School. Poverty and circumstances prevented me from pursuing my education any further as I had to begin searching for work at an early age. After working at different jobs for a while, I enlisted and became a law enforcement officer in the Jamaica Constabulary Force where I have been serving for over seventeen (17) years now. During my service as a Police Officer, I became totally blind in both eyes. I lost my job as a result of this but was able to get reinstated after going back to learn Braille, Computer and mobility at the Jamaica Society for the Blind.
