Writing is not only a passion and a choice, but also a calling upon my life. I can simply write whatever I want to write. I can write it whenever I want to write it. I can write it for whoever I think needs to read it. I can write it in whichever manner I perceive best to be appropriate. I can write it so as to create whatever impact I aim at.

I am good and strong at imagination and creativity. That's what gives me a cutting edge at fictional writing. I have written a voluminous poetry anthology titled "Minds Not Afraid To Think," a play: "Moments of Floods," and several short stories.

Having a special heart for the youths and young adults, I have written some literature for that age group e.g. "Wise Campuser: How To Strike a Balance Between Academics and God's Work," "Live A Colourful Life: Paint Yourself a Rainbow," and "Can Youths Live Morally in an Immoral Society?"

Boosted by an above-average relationship with my God, I've written spiritually empowering literature for different audiences such as "Revival: What It Takes," "Remaining Calm Under Pressure," among others.

I've also written a technical book, "Meetings and Minutes: A Practical Handbook for Chairpersons, Secretaries, Educators and Everyone."

I have a strong eye and taste for details. Coupled with a course in Editing and Proofreading from the University of Kyambogo, Kampala, I have edited numerous publications ranging from inspirational books, magazines, organizational reports, technical manuals, to biographies of people.

I am currently in the final writing stages of a bigger book project about excellent living in daily life.

All the above excludes the many (approximately 80) poems that I have written and attached melodies to make them songs. I am currently in the recording studio for my first gospel music album too!

Some of the articles, tracts, booklets, books, and other forms of literature I write are either inspired by personal experiences, the many books that I read, personal writing tastes and preferences, societal goings-on, and/or heavily by the hundreds of talks, sermons and speeches I give in conferences, workshops, and other public gatherings. I shouldn't deny the fact that some of my writings are born out of the counseling sessions I offer to a number of young adults, students, marrieds, parents, and other people around me. Inspired by the discussions, a piece of literature is given birth to.

Recently, I started a Leadership blog at where I post thoughts/articles basically about leadership at an individual, group, or national level.

Writing, besides others, is one thing I will do for LIFE!
