From the age of 18 months, I would walk around my parents house in Monrovia, Liberia always carrying books under my arms. My passion for books was such that from age 3, I had learnt to read and write. So when I started school, I was a couple of years ahead of my classmates. I would sit in a corner, writing stories all day and creating imaginary characters having wondrous adventures, most of them with a spiritual thread. I wrote and illustrated my first children's book at age 6 (34 years ago!) but never published it. Since then I wrote several stories which are still in my drawers...maybe awaiting to be published one day. The child spirit has never left me and I always have plenty of stories in my head ready to be born in ink. I started writing MALAIKA AND THE ANGEL in 2005 while living in Nairobi, Kenya. These are the first tales I am sharing widely. Malaika's adventure mirrors some of my own journey, and I hope you will enjoy her stories of discovery.
