MORAA GITAA

NAIROBI, Kenya

I'm a Kenyan lady in love with words! I was born and raised by the beach in Mombasa and as a result most of my writings are based by the ocean!

I have one published novel titled 'CRUCIBLE FOR SILVER AND FURNACE FOR GOLD' published September 2008 by Nsemia - Canada. I am also published in several anthologies including the G21 2007 Anthology - 'Africa Fresh! New voices from the First Continent' and Author-Me 'Author Africa 2008'

I am freelance writer and pen various socio-economic and topical issues for several magazines including Mshale & African Magazine.

I am currently working on my next two novels titled 'Shifting Sands' and 'Devil in the Detail'. Last year (2008) I won the NBDC-K(National Book Development Council of Kenya)literary awards,1st prize, Adult fiction category.

I also run 'A Book a Week' a consultancy and agency that specializes in Proof-reading, copy-editing, speech-writing, transcriptions, facilitiating and organising writers workshops and also for visual & performing arts.

I have an adorable 14-year old daughter Tracy who keeps me on the tips of my fingers where my writing is concerned!
