My name is Claire Adam and my first novel, Golden Child, is set in Trinidad.

I'm one of those people who look like they could come from anywhere. People all round the world come up to me with, "Hablas espanol?" And they're so disappointed when I tell them no.

I come from Antigua Drive, Federation Park. I lived in Trinidad until I was 18. I live in south-east London, [London Underground] Zone 3, England, now. I got there in 2000 and didn't plan on staying so long. In 2005, when we got the news London would host the 2012 Olympics, my very first thought was, "I'll be gone by then!" But it's 2019 and I'm coming up to the 20-year mark.
