Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Lusaka, Zambia. From ages five to ten, we live in Mansa where I started my primary school at Mutende Primary School. Other than that, my family was Lusaka-based. Growing up in a nations capital allows one to see life at both extremes. We started out as middle-class people and ended among the poorest folks of our city and that means living in the face of everybody. As far as parenting styles go, yes, I have seen enough to convince me that there is a better way.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing in the 1980s even if there was little hope of ever being published.
