Welcome to a bend in the river where Caribbean folklore collects in a pool teaming with crawfish and wabeen and fallen bamboos balance on the mossy rocks. I am Lisa Levi, author of River Stories. I was born and raised in Trinidad, from Dominican and Grenadian parentage and I started River Stories because of my interest in Caribbean folklore and folktales. I believe the folklore of the Caribbean, like the folklore of any peoples, reflects the true Caribbean, the unique spirit and truth of Caribbean people wherever they live.
For years I have written and told stories based on Caribbean folk characters.
