I wrote and sold my first book when I was seven, in Cameroon. My mother would not give me any allowances, so I tore off the back pages of my notebook. I made up characters, drew and wrote, creating identical artisanal comic books. I glued the pages with the resin of mango trees, and sold the copies to my classmates for ten cents. The next week they came asking for more: a series was born. I however got into trouble when my mom asked why she needed to buy me a new notebook so early into the school year. Ever since, I have fallen in love with writing and followed my tribe’s–Bulu–tradition of storytelling.
I live in Northern California. I write children’s stories and young adult fiction; English is my third language. I own a multicultural bookstore, Multiculturalism Rocks! Pop-Up, through which I primarily sell multicultural and bilingual books by small presses and independent authors. I’m available for school events (bookstore) and speaking engagements.
