Biography

I am a poet and photographer and have written poetry since I was very young. Most of my poetry is about life in Africa, the continent I call home. Born and raised in Zimbabwe, I am aware that Zimbabweans have been scattered to the far ends of the earth, due to political and economic hardships here at home. Many of these displaced Zimbabweans relate to the word-pictures I paint of "home" and have asked me to publish my work. Child of Africa is my first e book. More will follow.
