Today’s kids have tremendous opportunities to be global citizens. Through my writings, I want to expose them to the daily lives and culture of children in Africa. 

My books are mostly influenced by my personal experiences growing up as a child in Cameroon, though having two sons also help a lot—their lives are full of adventures. But wait; there is more… Each interaction and mostly each classroom visit is always an opportunity to learn from children. It’s important to know what your audience is curious about or how they react to your existing books.
