Children's Book Author. Dreamer. Storyteller.
I was immersed in many folktales from the African continent and beyond as a child. I was born and raised in Ghana. For that reason, I am a natural storyteller. I enjoy using words to paint beautiful stories. I bring these attributes to the craft of writing picture books for young children. My stories are alive and they are meant to touch and move people. The messages are fashioned to enrich the lives of both young children and adults.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Storyteller at Heart
Maisie's Scrapbook will be my first published children's book. It was inspired by my young family. A story that will be enjoyed by children and adults across the world. It introduces the idea of cultural diversity within families across the globe.
I live in Ohio with my wife, Freda, and daughter, Merrit.

Einstein said that, “Imagination is more important than knowledge”. Therefore, read picture books and tell stories to little children to develop their imaginations.
