Nelson is an award-winning author who loves to read and write African action-adventure stories on topics like: friendship, war, espionage, colonialism, corruption and human-trafficking. Nelson's first novel "Nightmare Along the River Nile" is set in Uganda and Sudan. It is about a student who was abducted by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) and sold into slavery. The story was inspired by actual events that happened to many young people in Northern Uganda in the 1990s.

Nelson's second novel "The Helpers" is an action-packed international tale of espionage and corruption, which is set in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Europe and United States. Although the story is fictitious, much of its background was inspired by historical events

RIP Maya Angelou

You were a blessing and an inspiration to all of us. I will remember all the lessons I learnt from you.
