In the latest Blog about  Rogues in Paradise, Clayton explains:

 “After 20 years of travel blogging and developing the very first Caribbean Digital Tourism Encyclopedia, I set out to describe the people of Barbados and capture their wit and humour.

What intrigued me most was why, after centuries of slavery, Bajans were so inclusive, welcoming, and full of fun. I wanted to capture and understand the special characteristics of these remarkable people. In the process, I started a life journey with more books on character and meaning to come.”
