Marguerite Caprice Anderson (born March 14, 1971) is a Jamaican author, poet, actress and educator widely recognized for her contributions to children's literature and the arts. She is the founder of Brain Edibles Collection, an online store offering children's books, e-learning, editing, writing, and publishing services.[1] With over 30 years of experience as an acclaimed Language Arts/Literature teacher, Anderson has authored numerous books, articles, and poems, establishing herself as a prominent figure in education and the literary arts.[2]

Early life and education

Anderson was born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica. Her early upbringing in a family of educators instilled in her a deep passion for teaching. She completed her secondary education at Wolmer's Girls' School, actively participating in extracurricular activities such as the school choir, Key Club, Speech & Drama Club, I.S.C.F., and the Spanish Club.

Anderson enrolled at Shortwood Teachers' College in Jamaica, where she specialized in Linguistics and Literature with a minor in History. She later earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus, majoring in literature and minoring in philosophy.

Anderson pursued Master's studies in Educational Administration and Supervision at the University of Phoenix, Arizona, USA.


Anderson started her professional teaching career in 1992 as an educator within the Ministry of Education of Jamaica. Over a career spanning more than 30 years, she assumed teaching responsibilities encompassing subjects such as A-Level General Paper, CAPE Literature, CAPE Communication Studies, and CSEC English A and B, primarily targeting students in Forms 4-6 (Grades 10–12).[3]

In 2007, Anderson migrated to the Turks & Caicos Islands where she joined the Raymond Gardiner High School as an English A and B teacher, instructing up to the CSEC level. Concurrently, she served as the coordinator of the school's Performing Arts Club, advisor to the Student Council and coach of the National Aids Debate team.

With a deep love for writing, in 2009, Anderson expanded her professional scope by assuming the role of writer and editor. Within this role, she authored articles spotlighting noteworthy events and achievements of individuals and the school, with the purpose of publication in local newspapers in the Turks and Caicos Islands (T.C.I.). Simultaneously, she played a pivotal role as a writer and administrator for the school's online presence, facilitating online communication within the school community.

In 2019, Anderson transitioned her career towards the writing of children's literature, inspired by her 7-year-old daughter.

In 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Anderson established the Brain Edibles Collection & Educational Center, an online platform providing educational resources and services. The platform includes an online store featuring educational books and literary works authored by her. The platform has gained recognition for its high-quality educational resources and diverse offerings for learners of all ages.

The platform offers online Language Arts and Lliterature classes for children and adults. Additionally, it has various book-related services, including audiobook voiceovers, book formatting, cover design, editing, content writing, and magazine publications. During the pandemic, Anderson also authored her first two children's books and an anthology of poems- many of these poems being suitable for academic studies in Literature.

In response to the pandemic, Brain Edibles Collection launched online e-learning programs for children aged 5 to 12. The platform expanded its educational portfolio to encompass courses catering to CSEC and CAPE students, including those preparing for Cambridge examinations. These courses are facilitated through the use of Google Classroom and Google Meet.

Anderson is also an actress with The Pantomime Company of Jamaica.
