Wayne Jordan
RRAW Legend Honoree
RRAW

I live on the beautiful tropical island of Barbados which is known for its shimmering crystal-clear waters and golden sands. I'm a high school teacher who always dreamed of being a published author. I didn't know, at that time, what I wanted to write, but following the advice of a few online author friends, I decided to write romance, a genre, which I read and enjoyed. In 2003, after winning the Heart & Soul Aspiring Authors' Contest (at the annual Romance Slam Jam Conference), an editor at the then BET Books, Demetrial Lucas, read and made me an offer. CAPTURE THE SUNRISE was released in November 2005, as part of a two-in-one volume, SLOW MOTION. I write contemporary romance and category romance which features black heroes and heroines. I've always been an advocate for romance, in particular, romance which features a black hero and heroine. I've watched the publishing industry and find the categorising of the books, we black authors write, as shades of our past, rooted in slavery and segregation. We write contemporary, mystery, romanctic suspense and in all the other genres. As far as I know there is no genre called African-American.
