Hi, my name is CJ. Ever since I was very small, I was immersed in the world of creativity.
Reading has always been one of my passions and my family carried on that Caribbean
tradition of oral storytelling.

More About Me

When I got older, I realized that I too would like to tell stories, craft characters, touch the minds and hearts of people. In short, be that storyteller that made such an impact on my life. I began writing at the tender age of eleven and have never stopped.

Otherwise, I am a coffee addict who loves my pet dog and enjoys hanging out with my family especially my veritable brood of nieces and nephews. I spend way too much time spacing out while I craft out characters and world settings and having very odd conversations with my sister.

As a day job, I grow bacteria from a variety of body sites and figure out which antibiotics can kill them. It’s fun! And as a side effect, it can help save lives!


12 Hours of Madness

You feel both the joy & the pain. The words jump off the page and right into your heart.

Through raw poetic storytelling from various perspectives, poetess Christianna Sahadeo instigates a soul-jolting awakening that gains momentum page by page with no intent of waning.

From the shadow-ridden trenches of the human psyche to the passionate peaks of the heart, and everything in between, this collection of candid poetry is more than a mere book of unapologetic outpourings; it serves as a portal into a realm of madness where no truth is too outlandish, and no viewpoint is too extreme.

12 Hours of Madness
ierie cover


A fight is coming

All her life Amrika has dreamed about being one of the dark things, like her father before her. Her lack of abilities, however, doesn’t stop her from risking her life to save that of a kalinag child, or from getting involved in the fight that’s coming.

The saikan Governor of Port-of-Gold, has declared that the last of the kalinag, the original peoples of the now-conquered island of Ierie must be destroyed and their lands taken for the glory of the Motherland.

With the death of its people looming, Ierie itself calls the dark things to its aid. And they must answer the call, for if they fail, the wrath of the land will awaken, and none may survive it.


Ierie is a supernatural folklore fantasy that takes place in a fantasy version of the Caribbean Island of Trinidad.

Ierie The Book

Inspired by the traditional ‘ole mas’ characters seen in annual Carnival celebrations, Ierie takes these characters and brings them to life, gifting them supernatural
abilities from the island itself.

While those gifted these abilities often use them to their own ends, they are leashed to the island’s demands through duty and their own loyalty and sense of righteousness. So, when Ierie calls to them in response to a heinous plan, they can and must answer.

Ierie also explores the cultural melting pot of the indigenous people of the island, those who
conquered them and the people brought to work the land through slavery and indentureship.
While the book’s setting is a combination of several points in the real-world timeline, it works to capture the relationships and interactions of each group with each other, some of which still persist in Trinidad today.

Altogether it is a book that hopes to capture the spirit of the past, present and future Trinbagonian people.
