As a writer, I write about what I know and what is important to me in my community with the aim of changing it for the better. I grew up surrounded by strong women and I am a strong supporter of women empowerment. It reflects in the strong women characters that I create in my novels and short stories.
From last year , I have been honing my writing skills by writing short stories. Two of my short stories: Move Back To Move Forward and Buried Alive in the Hot Kalahari Sand were among the 52 stories from 14 countries that were published in the AFRICA BOOK CLUB ANTHOLOGY VOL1(2014) entitled: The Bundle of Joy and Other Stories From Africa and edited by Daniel Musiitwa.This anthology can be ordered from the Africa Book Club website. I am in the final stages of writing the manuscript for my second fiction novel. I continue to read widely to feed my writing career and just for the love of the written word.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
To tell the story I have chosen to write in the right words and then present it to the readers.
When the readers love it , identify with some of the characters and the story challenges them to question
the decisions and choices they have made in life. Then I am the happiest writer at that moment in time.
What do your fans mean to you?
I look at them as my greatest pillar of support in my writing career. Without them I cannot earn my badge as a writer. They fire up my passion for writing.
