My full name is Edmore Matikiti but I prefer to be called Eddie. I am a 29 year old male who is single and works as an IT consultant for an accounting software company in Joburg. I am Zimbabwean emigrant living in South Africa and have been here for just over two years. I have a Marketing Degree. At school I enjoyed English literature and History but I majored in commercial studies. My first attempt of writing was in 2001 when I had just finished writing my high school exams. I was inspired by my religious faith to write a motivational book which I decided to call The Chronicles of Success. This writing is still work in progress and yet to be completed. I have written 2 articles that were printed in the Zimbabwean newspapers, The Herald and The Independent. These were comments about the socio-political realities there. I enjoyed reading literature by African writers especially West African writers like Chinua Achebe and Ngugi wa Thiongo. Their writings particularly fascinated me because of their metaphoric genius. I am also a fan of western Literature and have enjoyed the literary brilliance of William Shakespeare, George Orwell and Charles Dickens.
I enjoy listening to music, reading and watching movies. I am not an active sportsman but I do love watching my favourite soccer teams play and win. I am not necessarily passionate about fiction literature. I tend to lean more to factual studies about the world around me. I am also a guitar learner. I love travelling to new places and fishing. I love cars and am interested in gadgets.
I am inspired to write by my emotions. I need to feel strongly about something and I begin to write. This was the case with this book as well as the letters published in the newspapers.
