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 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'.  In 2009, two of my stories, 'Rock and Republic' and 'A Cold Day in December' were both shortlisted in a Kwani? writing contest whose theme was 'The Kenya I Live In.' My most recent works are the books  'The Moon is Made of Green Cheese' (poetry), 'Kiss, Commander, Promise' (short stories) and 'Africa on My Mind' (Young Adult lit). 

Paperback and e-book versions of my books are available at Lulu.com (http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/NewShakespeare)
