•  I was born and raised in Africa where I completed high school, and obtained a Bachelors Degree in English and Literary Studies, before relocating to the United States. My husband and I are raising our 4 children here in Oklahoma. I hold a Masters Degree in Human Relations from the University of Oklahoma. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), and Licensed Alcohol Drug Mental Health Counselor (LADC/MH). My first picture book Tomtom: All of Us is currently available on amazon.com and createspace.com  I grew up listening to my mom tell us stories after dinner, under the moonlight, stories that helped shape me. I am sharing the same experience with our children now, and feel delighted to share the African oral tradition with other children and families from around the world.


  • There are so many lessons to learn from the many stories we tell.
