T.K. Naliaka brings years of real-world living on three continents to create fresh, fast-paced fiction adventure writing for all ages.

"If one could speak two languages well and was raised on tea and baguettes for breakfast, in places where the most mundane daily business on the street is conducted in four languages, where horse carts park at cyber cafes, where would one go? Where could one go? Why, with a smile and a handshake, very far, indeed!"

"Naliaka's emotive, yet short and snappy anecdote of trade in an African setting illustrates the scope and complexity of doing business in the African continent."
Africa Rising: Doing Business in Africa, authors from Regents Business School, South Africa, June 2014

So, just venturing outside and walking the street to mingle with people young and old, in four different types of traditional robes and dresses, seeing the juxtapositions of horse carts and shiny new sedans, barefoot children trotting past women in the latest styles of high heels and all gingerly negotiating puddles and newly hand-dug open ditches for fiber-optic cables is like an exposed surface diamond field of inspiration.(less)

“Mais voici qu’aujourd’hui nous avons éprouvé la soif. Et ce puits que nous connaissons, nous découvrons, aujourd’hui seulement, qu’il rayonne sure l’étendue. Une femme invisible peut enchanter ainsi toute une maison. Un puits porte loin, comme l’amour.”

“Nous avons accepté la règle du jeu, le jeu nous forme à son image. Le Sahara, c’est en nous qu’il se montre. L’aborder ce n’est point visiter l’oasis, c’est faire notre religion d’une fontaine.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Terre des Hommes

“To witness the awe of human beings delighting in their own hands forming the written word was humbling and he understood it profoundly at that moment watching those two, with the ancient land around them, in their traditional robes and the resting camels by their campfire, intently regarding writing with such immense respect … that illiteracy meant subsistence, while literacy meant human advancement, the base on which higher achievements and accomplishments of great civilizations could be built.”

Carol Dobson Hi TK, Thank you for the quote. You are clearly very creative and have a 'way with words'. Don't rush. Find out what the editor has done/is doing.
BY the way, have started reading your book, and am enjoying it. I'm a slow reader at the moment as doing a lot of things, but will speed up soon!
