An African from Togo, I hold the University of Michigan (Ann Arbour, USA) Language School Certificate of Proficiency (Hons) in English (By examination); The Institute of Children’s Literature (ICL, Redding Ridge, Connecticut, USA) Diploma in Writing for Children and Teenagers; the National Writers’ School (USA) Certificate of Achievement in The Professional Writing Course; The London School of Journalism poetry writing course; the Institute of Children’s Literature’s “Beyond the Basics,” the advanced course in Writing short stories and articles for Children and Teenagers; and The Long Ridge Writers Group (West Redding, Connecticut, USA) “Breaking Into Print,” the course for writing short stories and articles for adults.

A teacher and businessman (broker), I write stories for children and adults as well as poems and articles. I have published articles and stories in some newspapers in Ghana, in Clubhouse, AIM, Skipping Stones, My Friend, Orlo, and on the web sites www.ezinearticles.com, www.timbooktu.com, www.nathanielturner.com (Chickenbones: a Journal), and www.us-alf.org. My stories have been accepted for publishing in Highlights for Children and African Voices; two others have won honorable mention in ByLine Magazine competitions. In 2008 the editor of Chickenbones nominated my story for consideration for inclusion in an anthology released by Dzanc Books. A story of mine was included in “Speaking for the Generations,” an anthology of contemporary African short stories released by Africa World Press in Trenton, NJ, in June 2009 and another is included in an anthology of children’s stories released in June 2011 by Pauline Books & Media in Boston, MA.

My main activities are freelance writer, blogger, affiliate marketer, translator, and teacher.

My hobbies are reading, writing, travelling, listening to music, dancing, gardening and going for a walk.
