The fate of Amani rests in Sally’s hands, but she cannot do it without you!
I began publishing in a time when the legitimacy of African authors was wholly dependent on how much war, famine or poverty their protagonists could endure before being 'saved' by a benevolent, foreign force. That was our pigeon hole.
Technology - and self-publishing by extension - has been a boon to authors who have not considered part of the traditional mainstream. Such platforms that technology has presented allow us to explore and bring to our readers our unique brand of comedy, humor, romance...even Afro-futurism and sci-fi.
I choose to write as my heart and my conscience compel me.
