Tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start writing.
I am a graduate (Bachelor of Science, Pure Math Major) from the University of Nairobi, 2013, and currently pursuing my second degree in Mass Communication at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology.
I am a passionate writer, a gifted poet, an accomplished lyricist, a recorded singer, and above all a freelance journalist based in Nairobi, Kenya.
I have penned down FOUR titles, which are readily available and accessible online and offline via CreateSpace Publishers, Amazon, etc.. They include:
 There is no Country Called Kenya: If you Must Steal, Just Steal a Little Please
 The UglyBeautiful Tale of a Stupid, Stupid Heart: When Mother Hen Eats her Grownup Chicks
 A Must-Have Guide for Every Aspiring Writer: Easy, Learnable, Realistic and Sure Ways to Earn Money as A Writer Online (Earning a Living as A Writer) (Volume 1)
 Please! Remember to Forget Me! And Other Short Stories
More so, I have two other works that will be hitting your bookstores at the soonest opportune possible. These include a Swahili Riwaya titled Yajapo Yapokee, and an English Short Stories Anthology titled Please! Remember to Forget Me! And Other Stories.
Additionally, I am an occasional Op-Ed contributor for major local dailies here in Kenya namely:
1. The Daily Nation
2. The Standard Group Media
4. Sido News Network
5. Kenya Yote
7. Kenya London News
Some of my fiction writings have also been featured in reputable sites such aswww.africanwriter.com and www.writeoutloud.com.
What Inspired Me To Write
Not long after my birth, my parents walked their separate ways after a not-so-happy marriage that I would come to learn many years later was characterized by violence, drunkenness and negligence.
Denied both motherly, and fatherly love, it didn’t take long to realize I was on my own. I started asking why…then Papa died, closely followed by Isabel, my late girlfriend, and the only kind soul I ever knew.
For me, writing is not only a past-time hobby, but a therapeutic undertaking that has helped me discover the real me.
What happens around me greatly inspires me…. The loss of a loved one, the runaway culture of impunity, and rampant corruption in my country, a heartbreak, and most important, solitude and loneliness.
Tell us about your books.
My books are mainly centered on the themes of relationships, justice, equality, good governance, and leadership accountability.
The UglyBeautiful Tale of a Stupid, Stupid Heart was inspired by the 2007/2008 Kenya’s Post Election Violence, and the subsequent victory to the alleged perpetrators; There is No Country Called Kenya is an answer to the current wave of perpetual state-sanctioned thieving that threatens to tear Kenya apart, and so are the rest of the titles.
How did you go about getting published?
Traditional Publishing is no longer appealing to amateur writers not yet established out there, and it is for this reason that I opted for Indie Publishing.
Not only does it give me freedom of determining the final product, but also saves me a lot of time that I would have wasted waiting for editorial reviews from a traditional publisher.
What is your writing process? Do you have a time, day or place you like to write?
Writing for me is not a linear process. I write as ideas come; sometimes, continuously, at other times, once in a while.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Full-time job, pets, hobbies?
When I am not writing, I am reading. Currently, I do not have a full-time job, but I occasionally contribute articles for a number of local dailies here in Kenya.
Any advice for authors about book covers?
Do not judge a book by its cover it is said. However, I strongly believe that book covers still plays a major part as far as potential buyers are concerned. That said, authors should invest in their book covers, and ensure it is professionally designed to suit their title, and literary piece main theme.
Any marketing tips you’d like to share with other authors?
There are many readers online nowadays, and as such, social media can prove quite helpful in marketing one’s books. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc., makes it quite easy to share links, info, previews, and sample texts.
There is also traditional advertising methods (which requires lots of cash).
