Garfield Whyte, a lawyer, is also an author and poet. He is the author of TJ’s Last Summer in Cape Cod, which had been adapted into a screenplay for which he is seeking financing.
His non-fiction: Nostalgia from: A City Set Upon a Hill, is his memoir about his all boys boarding high school in Jamaica; Munro College. This book is also adapted to a screenplay awaiting financing
His other book: Feelings is a collection of his environmental photography and poems, which is designed as a gift for friends, “for that moment you cannot put in words of your own.”
Garfield, after graduating from Munro College in Jamaica, attended the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus in Jamaica, where he pursued a bachelor’s degree in geography and social sciences. He also obtained a master’s degree in business administration from the Nova Southeastern University in Florida, USA.
Still not satisfied with my academic achievements, he went on to complete a law degree from the University of London, then on to the Norman Manley Law School.
Prior to his legal career, he worked in the banking sector with leading commercial banks, including Workers Bank, CIBC Jamaica Limited (now FirstCaribbean) Bank, and last with Scotiabank, with his final banking position being senior marketing manager.
Now a practicing lawyer, he limits his practice to real estate, probates, and contract law.

TJ (Taj James) an 18 year old high school basketball star wants to make this summer his best ever, before he leaves to take up his college basketball scholarship, but he needs help. So, he rolls the dice and calls on his 55 year old Uncle Peter, a womanizer par excellence, to help him with those plans. TJ holds secrets for Uncle Peter so TJ was very sure his uncle would do anything for him, as his uncle's promises seemed more sacred than wedding vows. As summer rolled along TJ is forced to make decisions whether to be a good boy or to practice some of the lessons his uncle is teaching him. Was it worth it when summer ended? That will depend on whose side you are on.
TJ's Last Summer in Cape Cod is; bold, provocative, rude, sexy, suspenseful, unpredictable and witty. You will want to be 18 again.
