Books I've written, anthologies I've contributed to, and any scripts or plays I've authored:
I have self-published two books, Remember to Pray: Day Planner and 2013 Hummingbird Day Planner.

Remember to Pray is a planner that is designed to remind us to pray daily, but more especially it helps us establish a connection with God and to maintain that connection on a daily basis. Through daily prayer we acknowledge His importance in our lives and take time out of our numerous other commitments to worship and give thanks to Him.

2013 Hummingbird Day Planner. Beautifully designed 2013 Hummingbird Day Planner helps you plan your day. It encourages and guides you to set objectives for yourselves through-out the year (12 months), hence to achieve your goal. The highlights of the planner are: Weekly Planning, Calendars, Notes, 2013 Holidays and Monthly Goal Plan.

My recent work, a newly published children's book called A Silly Rhyming Alphabet Book about Animals from A to Z. It is an instructional book but one which is cleverly disguised as a rhyming, animal book. children will unknowingly learn the alphabet, be introduced to animals new and known, and pick up the subtleties of rhyme.

I have have done freelance magazine work for a few magazines. Africulture, Planet Africa, Mudd magazine and The Canadian Journal Newspaper.
Media outlets that I currently write for:
Contributor on Yahoo! Voices
My writing is:
Fiction, Journalism, Blog Posts
Outlets where I review books, TV, or film:

Services I offer to other writers:
