Cory Plimo


I was born at the turn of millennium with a passion for literature. At 14 I read Joseph Heller's "Good as Gold" and thought I had arrived. Since then I have not been able to quench the literary thirst, and so I made the bad habit of putting down three to six books a year, it's worse than addiction to weed.

I have written "Eggshells" (play), "Cinders" (novel) and "Little Things" (poetry) all in the hope of bringing this habit under control. I hope to put them all on Smashwords.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I stared writing poetry in 2008. I was 14 then.
What's the story behind your latest book?
"Little Things" is my latest book, it is a collection of poems that handle growing up, nature, culture, perfidy, politics and love. On the whole it makes clear the wonders of how littleness of social being is as perceived from poverty and wealth.

Nothing thrills the audience more than when they are watching what they can relate. "Eggshells" is a drama set in Ngaza, a fictional province in Kenya, and handles contemporary issues bedeviling Kenyan schools --universities to be specific. Footloose and fancyfree, the students, just as the highly educated professors, hide nothing of their animal feelings.
Little Things
Price: $1.53 USD. Words: 7,080. Language: English. Published: October 23, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » African Poetry
"Littleness" may seem a bad idea to both the poor and the rich. To the former by virtue of lack of means, to the latter by shortness of life. Set in Kenya, "Little Things" is a collection of poems that superficially are little, but cryptic on the contrary. It captures in a memorable, titillating handiwork the daily hardships that are a workaday issue to the Kenyan pauper.
