Sweet Memories of Christmas in Africa As a Child

Christmas is a joyous season full of love. As an occasion which symbolizes peace, giving and sharing, adults love it. So guess what it is like for a child when it is Christmas time? As a child growing up in Africa, the approaching of Christmas every year is considered a special occasion.

Will He?

Will He? is my third mystery.  It required a great deal of research so I feel that my writing is evolving; hopefully, improving.  If only I could gain more exposure for this book.  I already have my next one published.  A romance entitled, Till Heaven Then Forever.

Rosa the last flower

After 40 years spent abroad, I returned to Annaba to see Rosa.

Rosa is a rose like no other; it is the most beautiful rose of the garden called the garden of love.

When I arrived to the garden that was the surprise! I found Rosa alone, gray and sad, I told her: Rosa where is your smile? you were an inspiration to authors and poets, you sing, you dance, you radiate joy and happiness for adults, children, and lovers.

She told me : kan Zamen…

Dear (insert YOUR name here).

Hello (insert YOUR name here).

It's been a while since we last spoke, and I just felt like this was a good time to reveal some of my innermost thoughts to you.

Although I have gone through so much in life, my resourcefulness has never wavered, and I realize that my past has not only made me strong, but I possess unlimited potential to do anything I choose to in life.

I may have allowed so many fantastic opportunities to slip through my fingertips due to my past behavior…
