I am a 34-year-old writer based in Nairobi, Kenya. I launched into writing at an early age. When I was young, I developed a lasting love for the written word that shaped my career aspirations forever.At school, my teachers encouraged me to polish my writing skills so much that by the time I was in secondary school, I had my eyes on newspaper writing. In College (Moi University, Kenya) I spent the better part of my spare time editing campus magazines, with a keen eye on managing profitability through adverts from the university business community and nearby establishments while still ensuring that we had the most juicy, factual, entertaining and informative stories. I have written literary criticism, business articles, features and op-ed pieces in newspapers in the East African region and mostly in Kenya and Rwanda.I have also edited books. At the time of uploading this data, I serve as a creative works/literary editor at one of the leading publishing houses in Africa at its headquarters in Nairobi.My interest in writing is not confined to authorship, as I enjoy the thrill of seeing myself turn other people's work into published form. My aspiration is to do more on writing so that by the time I call it a day (nay,life) I'll have left acres and acres of writimgs by myself and by those who I'll be in a position to help in their writing efforts.
Interests: writing fiction, literary criticism, debating
