When did you first start writing?
I started writing in 2002. I started writing folktales and dared my first novel. Sadly, in 2005, I lost all the folktales and my first novel when my computer hard drive crashed. I have already typed them in my computer and all the traces of hard copies thrown away when the incident occurred. It was such a very devastating and painful experience.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is titled CHANGING YOUR REALITIES WITH YOUR THOUGHTS. Just as the name implies, the book is an answer to those who want to change the negative realities of their life. Changing Your Realities With Your Thoughts is a product of what I call Deep Heart Diving. The content was received as intuitive lessons from the Abandoned School of Learning, situated within. The journey within offered the content of that book as answers to some of my nagging questions about life when no one could provide any satisfactory answer.
