For over four decades, Carolyn Ali has enjoyed a successful career, teaching and writing in Trinidad and Tobago. From the 1980s to the 90s, her children’s stories regularly appeared in the Junior Express. In 2010, her book Stories and Recipes from The Egg Lady, published by Hansib, was launched at the University of the West Indies, Open Campus. The Egg Lady featured a collection of Ali’s original short stories, local, regional and international recipes, and the art-work of the internationally renowned Trinidadian artist, the late Ian Ali. In response to the popularity of The Egg Lady, Ali went on to write Stories and Recipes from The Indian Dancer, in the same format.
