If you came here to buy my e-books or paperbacks that are already written, you're in luck! Just click here!

If you came here to read what I'm writing right now, you're in luck! Just keep reading below:

I write the kind of stories I always wanted to read, and that means science fiction and contemporary fantasy about people I can relate to, or least the kinds of real-world people I could or actually do meet and know.

So unlike all the work that focuses on space warriors, elite scientists, or alien princesses, my work is about everyday people like me, you, and the folks you know, and that includes plenty of people and demographics that most SFF writers have always ignored. I'm trying to write work about psychologically complex people so that when you read my books and short stories, you might say, "Oh! Now I finally understand myself/my dad/my friend/my spouse/my kids/my boss" (etc.).

If I'm doing my job properly, then I'm writing about situations and crises that affect us as individuals, as communities, and as a species, so we can understand who we are, what we want to become, the dooms we want to avoid, and the worlds we want to create.

Since most of my work links ancient and modern African civilisations with our dreams for building a future in our own image, I call my genre Afritopianism.

I hope you'll support me in this work.
