Profile Information

About Me:(Generous response attract more interest)
I am Norman Samuda Smith born in Birmingham, England of Jamaican parents. They arrived in the UK during the early 1950s. My novel BAD FRIDAY was first published in 1982 by Trinity Arts, Birmingham, and was short-listed for the Young Observer Fiction Prize later that year. BAD FRIDAY was republished in 1985 by New Beacon Books (London/Port of Spain), and confirmed me as the first Black British born novelist to be published in the UK.

My short-stories have been featured in award winning anthologies Whispers in the Walls; (Tindal Street Press, Birmingham 2001), The Heart of Our Community; (Timeless Avatar Press U.S.A 2006), and my poems are included in the collection, Songs of Hope; (Timeless Avatar Press U.S.A 2006); all available on amazon. I am currently the Writer/Editor/Publisher of the on line cultural review PANTHER NEWSLETTER and its mother site SAMUDA SMITH PUBLICATIONS which I set up in 2009. They started out as a hobby which I was going to share with family and friends but within four months they went global.

In 2013 I self-published three of my books Britannia's Children, Freedom Street and Bad Friday under the banner of Samuda Smith Publications.
