Thanks of visiting my site!

I released my debut novel, Shades and Shadows, in January 2005.  It is a book that I started as a hobby over fifteen years ago.  As an avid reader, I was inspired by many of the great romantic writers, and was convinced I could write a story that was as engrossing and enjoyable. Shades and Shadows is that story, and has received wide-spread positive reviews.  The Romantic Times chose Shades and Shadows as a Top Pick for January 2005, and rated it with 4.5 stars (out of five). 

"Few debut authors produce such phenomenal work, but Shaw pens an addicting tale of trust, obsession and desire. Jade gains greater confidence in herself, and Noel comes off as sensitive yet still maintains his masculinity. Realistic concerns throughout their developing relationship make a great book." - T.L. Burton

I have since released another 8 contemporary romance novels for Dafinaall with rave reviews and critical acclaim.  They are available world-wide through major stores or on-line book retailers.  

Now Shades and Shadows has been re-released as an eBook!

I was born in Morgan's Pass, Clarendon, Jamaica and immigrated with my family to Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1974.  I attended Claude Watson School for the Arts and studied dance, art and drama.  I then went to the University of Toronto where I graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology.  I now live in Burlington, Ontario with my young daughters, Sierra and Naima.

In 2003, I was accepted by Sha-Shana Crichton of Crichton and Associates Literary Agents.  In early 2004, I signed my first book deal with Kensington Publishing/Dafina.  I am currently working on a new series of novels under the name Raven Scott, the first of which was just released August 2015.
