I have published six books since June 2016.
Novels in the Africa's Billionaire Heirs series.
I use the fictitious Broaders and Marko families to develop novels/novellas centered on the theme of change, transition and integration, as Africa urbanizes.
A few families in Africa made their money during independence in the 1950s and 1960s. Those individuals married and raised children in opulence. Subsequently, some of their children gained a culture of working hard, while others did not see the need.
The owners of vast business empires are facing their sunset years, a time to panic, who will inherit and continue with their enterprises.
On the opposite end are many citizens wallowing in poverty. Through years of struggle, some bought into the idea that education would open doors to a better life, Marko, Sophia’s father being one of them.
Marko is in unfathomable debt, but content that his daughter has graduated from the national university. Will Sophia bring the expected change?
There are struggles, and there is happiness. Broaders and his five sons; Michael, James, Bill, Richie, and Nick; are on a journey, enjoying life as they have always known it, amid change in the larger environment. The ongoing change tests what the Broaders family knows about working fathers, stay-at-home mothers, and exclusive members’ clubs.
I am proud of all my characters in Africa’s Billionaire Heirs Series. Read on, find entertainment in each chapter, while you learn how the Broaders family embraces change, sometimes in unusual ways.

Marko talked, in a voice different from the last one. This time round he did not sound quarrelsome. “Have you considered the proposal from Teacher Cleophas, he is not a bad man. A teacher, sure to provide stability, as always.
...And with a teacher, comes a lot of reassurance, that your children will get an education, and some extra coaching from home. Have you considered that?”
...But if the teacher is no longer part of your new elevated life, I will go...Though that one should not enter your head. The US must be a faraway place. Stick with the teacher.”
