Author Bio


Born Glenroy Solomon Burke in rural Jamaica, the author at an early age was stunned by the tough circumstances facing his family. At 11 years old, he witnessed how his mother cried one evening when she didn’t have enough dinner to feed their household of eleven. Seeing the situation, at 11 years old Burke promised his mother that one day he would go to the United states, open his own restaurant and get her a better life. After high school, he pursued his dream’s desire and in 2008 the promise to his mother became a reality when he opened what would become an outstanding (rated 4.5 out of 5) and popular restaurant known as Jerk Café (where the author is known as Chef Shrimpy) in South Yarmouth on Cape Cod, Massachussets.
