Ibrahim Oumarr Jalloh
The book is a good read, with important lessons about decency and true friendship and human cruelty
- Africa Book ClubVery few books have evoked such emotion. 'Nightmare Along the River Nile' brought me to tears. The compassion that Edgar and his friends have for each other is extraordinary. The author has done a magnificent job in bringing attention to a very serious issue and human tragedy; modern day slavery
- C.C. Irving I was particularly impressed with how the cadence of her writing reflects and captures the African interaction -

From the Author
This story was inspired by actual events that happened to many young boys and girls in northern Uganda in the 1990s. The story was conceived from many interviews that were conducted with survivors and former child soldiers who managed to escape the LRA.
More About the Author
Thank you visiting my book page. I am a published author of two award-winning novels and I love to write stories about Africa. My first novel "Nightmare Along the River Nile" is set in Uganda and Sudan. It is a story about a student who was abducted by the LRA and sold into slavery. My second novel "The Helpers" which has a series, is an international tale of espionage and corruption, and is set in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Europe and United States.
"Nightmare Along the River Nile" was inspired by actual events that happened to many young boys and girls in northern Uganda in the 1990s. The story was conceived from many interviews that were conducted with survivors and former child soldiers who managed to escape the LRA. "The Helpers" was inspired by colonialism in the Congo (both DRC & ROC) and how it led to corruption and terror.
I work as a Consultant for United Nations and I have lived and worked in Africa, Europe and United States. I am also an advocate of human rights issues like anti-slavery trafficking, protection of war children and child education.
