About Author:

  • Dadland Maye

Dadland Maye spent most of life in rural Jamaica before migrating to the U.S. in 2002 where he lived as an undocumented immigrant for eight years. During this time he worked under-the-table jobs to support himself while pursing studies at CUNY. In 2008, U.S immigration awarded him political asylum after considering his history where he was violently persecuted in Jamaica because of his homosexuality. Two years later he got his first degree at Hunter College where he is also currently pursuing an MA in English Literature. He enjoys dramatizing his poetries, working on his first novel titled Craft A Sun, and keeping in touch with fans on his website: www.facebook.com/dadland.
