I write Novels; Among Us and Under Man's Spell.
I write fiction and creative nonfiction. I am also looking forward to writing YA and children's books, sometime in the near future.

My second book "Under Man's Spell" was inspired by true events. The story interweaves the lives of several families living traditional lives in the heart of Africa, and shows the disturbing impact of dogmatic tradition and superstition on individuals and communities.

I'm currently working on my third Novel.

"Among Us", is about a young guy called Alex who grows up in the shadow of his mysterious and feared father. Upon the death of his father Alex is drawn into supernatural and evil world of witches and black magic and is forced to escape in order to maintain control of his own life. This is a tale of physical and emotional survival which gives inspiration and insight into the power of an individual, even when faced with unspeakable evil.

"Under Man's Spell", has been inspired by the true events in the country of Tanzania.
From the old ladies who are burnt to death due to the belief that they are witches only because of their red eyes and wrinkled skins, to the albinos who are killed due to different beliefs mostly associated with black magic, human beings are tormented and killed in numbers unbeliavable to those who are living in more civilized societies.

They tried to pull the baby from her but they couldn't. More men went in and dragged her and the baby out. When people got a glance of the baby some ran away, but many of the others started throwing stones at both Abe and the baby. They kept throwing the stones at them until they were motionless. They then took firewood and pushed them back into the house before setting it on fire,...........
