After 1970, he became directly involved in the supply and service of equipment to the commercial fishing industry in Jamaica.

Previous publications include "The Village Curtain: A Jamaica Collection" (Savant 2009), a collection of integrated short stories about island life in Jamaica.
"You can have a conventional look at Jamaica anytime. It's very pretty. It's more than that. It's beautiful. And you will see that beauty through the pages of this book," says Tame. "But it is my hope that you will also smell the city drains, observe the sacrifice of the land and water on the altar of expedient and ruthless disregard for the environment, and feel the jackboot of authoritarian cruelty quietly encouraged by official indifference. That is 'The Desperate Cycle' in which the island and most of its people are enmeshed."
"The Desperate Cycle" by Tony Tame - 260 pages - 5.25" x 8" Pocket Book - Color Softcover. ISBN 978-0-9852506-
