Writer Biography

I was born in 1982 and grew up in Praso, a small town, a few miles from the coast of Ghana. My local community has a traditional history of story-telling, which is an important part of my cultural heritage. As a child I learnt some of the values of life whilst listening to my Grandfather’s stories and these early influences are reflected in the stories I write today. Whilst at college, I had the privilege to serve as a student counsellor, an executive adviser of an independent club and a club chaplain. I left Ghana in 2001 to study at Nottingham University where I gained a BA (Hons) in Finance and Accounting and, subsequently, an MSc in Banking and Finance at Loughborough University.

During the time I have lived in the UK, I have always remembered, and been supported by, the Ghanaian stories of my childhood.
