As a former international trade professional in Brazil, I promote trade with Brazil as Your US-Brazil Trade Assist (www.rosalienebacchus.com).
I was born in Guyana, a former British colony on the northern coast of the South American continent. As the only English-speaking country on the continent, Guyana’s historical, cultural, and economic development is linked with the Caribbean Region and is a founding member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).
In 1987, I migrated with my husband and two sons to Fortaleza, capital of the northeastern State of Ceará in Brazil. For fourteen years, I worked as an import-export manager.
My sons and I migrated to the United States in October 2003, settling in Los Angeles, Southern California. Submerged in the creative arts world of Hollywoodland, I started writing articles about international trade issues and US-Brazil trade, as well as fictional short stories.
As a form of self-therapy, I began working on a novel. You can learn about my journey as a writer on my author’s website. Today, I have two novels completed and have begun working on my first book of creative non-fiction. My debut novel, Under the Tamarind Tree, was released on August 12, 2019.
