Background Information

 I started writing when I was in Secondary School but most of my work ended up in my school trunk.  It was only after writing a couple of plays for Church, one for Pentecost one for the Youth Group that I rekindled my passion.  I went full force after the death of my husband when poetry just flowed out of me.  

I am an emotional writer.  I have to actually feel an event or see something striking and memorable before I can write.  I cant just sit and make up things but when it flows i can pen more than three poems in an hour.  Most of my poems are expressions of what i feel, have seen or heard.

I am at present writing a collection of poems, a children's story book, a fictional novel, a self help book and a factual book about widowhood in the african setting.

Major influences are Ama Ataa Aidoo, Star Hammond and other african writers. i am also influenced by the beautiful culture of Ghana and my love of nature and beauty of the people

Birth Place
Manchester,  England

My poetry has been published on the One Ghana One Voice Website
