Jo Kusi is a London based author who has been creating stories from the very tender age of eleven. After many years as a management consultant in corporate Britain, Jo now pursues his dream of authoring children’s books.
Being born in West Africa, in a home where storytelling was customary, had a lasting impression on Jo who now draws inspiration from the many stories he was told as a child. He has now authored dozens of short pieces, poems and stage plays.
His true passion is for children’s books, with ‘Jordan and the Dancing Hippo’ being his debut publication. Having worked with children for years, Jo uses a unique writing style that makes it easy for children to learn to read while stirring up their imagination.
