I am a Kenyan-born novelist and entertainer. In 2001, I became one of Africa's first 'digital novelists' with the Internet publication of my signature thriller, 'When the Whirlwind Passes'. In 2003, I received an African writers prize for my poem 'The Golden Man'.  In 2004, I was nominated for the Douglas Coupland Short Story Award for his despairing spy story, 'Life as a Flower'. In the Spring of 2007, Life as a Flower was included in the Reading Section of an assessment exam in Pennsylvania, USA. In late 2007, I won a Theatre Company prize for my humorous stage play, 'Hannah and the Angel'. My most recent works are:  'The Moon is Made of Green Cheese' (poetry) and 'Kiss, Commander, Promise' (short stories).

Not necessarily. I meant Destiny, forces beyond our control, that kind of thing. Thanks 4 the vote!
