I started serious writing at 14, but none of my articles was ever published until I was doing my sophomore year.
Till now, close to 20 articles have been published in my country's leading dailies and believe will reach 1000 by the age of 50.
Wilbur Smith is one of my very best authors and he has a great influence on my writing career. The other one is Pat Conroy. I like these authors because of the setting of their novels. They reflect what really happens on the ground.
I was nominated for best writer award during all my college years but never got the crown, because they were other writers better than I was.
