About this author

Originally from Ghana, but presently resides in East Timor with his family. Engaged in teaching and writing.

"Gatekeepers - The Quest for Clues to an Age-Old Riddle", first published in 2009, is his first novel. It is about the quest for the truth of the "end-times" from the perspective of six World Religions.

A second novel, "Night of the Transition", was released in May 2012. It narrates the story of what happened when one man travelled in the company of over 1,000 other pilgrims, from the shores of Ghana to the Egyptian-Israeli border to witness the "rapture" of Christ at the start of the new millennium.
