I am a published writer with two fiction books to my name and one children’s book . As a story-teller I believe not only in telling the story right but in editing that brings clarity to the reader.I love a well told story.

My editing life started during high school after attending a writer’s workshop .I was trained by the local Literature Bureau .I was one of the youngest outside editors at that time. My job was to review submitted scripts, advise the writer and recommend those that had a chance of being published.

Over the years I have edited many manuscripts, devotionals , short stories and anthologies . I wrote the foreword to the much loved book , From My Belly To Yours by Tshamani Mathebula.

I believe in the power of the written word and editing is key to getting the message home. I have an column called Lemonade Makers with an online newspaper . This keeps me in the writing game every week while encouraging people to remain hopeful.Writing heals and inspires ,let me help you impact your reader .
