Delvin Howell was born in Bridgetown, Barbados, in 1987. He attended Queen's College and the University of the West Indies, where the idea for Offset brewed in his mind. Shortly after, he completed the manuscript for Mask of Bimshire and won the John Wickham Award for the Frank Collymore Literary Endowment in 2010. Offset made its debut as a one-shot comic for Wunnuh Publishing's Mass Anthology, and then started an official series under Beyond Publishing Caribbean where it won a Gold Addy for publishing and design from the Caribbean Advertising Federation. Offset: Mask of Bimshire is his debut novel and he hopes to capture the Caribbean spirit with it.
