Every book added to the bookshelf is a plus. But it is more satisfying when it is a good book. When readers love it…when they laugh uncontrollably in the train, plane, metro or the bus while reading a funny scene or when they frown their faces, touched by a sad portion in the book or when their hearts pound when they read through an anti-climax.

It is as well satisfying when characters in your book are immortalized and their names used to crack jokes or used as references…

My novel “A Place of Fun and Evil” has been described as…”a thrilling reading spiced with in-depth humour”…and…”a fascinating narration with a very unique style”. Other reviews are found on the readers’ reviews page of this website.

“A Place of Fun and Evil” is indeed a very thrilling African story, spiced with unforgettable humour and deep adventure…one you will never regret you read.

My other books Pilgrimage of No Retreat (50 Fascinating Poems)  and How to Write Newspaper and magazine Articles (A Journalist’s Guide) are also advertised on this website. Pilgrimage of No Retreat (50 Fascinating Poems) is a collection of 50 of my most precious poems. Some of which have been dramatized to audiences across the world with tremendous positive feedback. These are 50 fascinating poems you will love.

How to Write Newspaper and magazine Articles (A Journalist’s Guide) is an elaborate guide on how to write sucessful Newspaper or Magazine articles. Copies of all three books can be bought from this site, or through Amazon, Clickbank and other online Bookstores.

My Magazine, African Celebrities Magazine (ACM) is also mentioned here. It has its full website from where you can learn more about it or sponsor it if you are interested. It is a fabulous Magazine with great goals and objectives and the quality is very professional. It is one of the the “Most influential International African Magazines published in Europe” which covers all African Celebrities throughout Africa and worldwide.
