About Jane Nannono
I am a Ugandan who has lived and worked in Botswana as a medical doctor for the last 21 years. I am a graduate of Makerere University in Kampala , Uganda. I am a mother of two adorable sons and a daughter and a guardian for my two nieces. I have been a voracious reader as far as I can remember. I returned to Uganda in 2016 to retire as a full time writer of novels and short stories set in Africa.The Last Lifeline was my first novel and my second fiction novel is entitled: And The Lights Came On. I am working on the third one while at the same time honing my writing skills by contributing short stories to the monthly Short Reads competition of the Africa Book Club Blog. My two short stories : Buried Alive in the Hot Kalahari Sand and Move Back To Move Forward are among the 52 African stories from 14 countries published in The Africa Book Club Anthology VOL 1 (2014) entitled The Bundle of Joy And other short stories from Africa and edited by Daniel Musiitwa.
I have been investing in myself as a writer by taking online courses in writing fiction and short stories. I regularly attend Video training and Webinars organised by experts like: Jeff Goins- of Tribe Writers, Chad R.Allen, Michael Hyatt- the virtual coach, Chandler Bolt of Self-publishing School and Jonathan Milligan of Blogging Your Passion University.I have had to squeeze these in my heavy clinical work schedule.
I grew up surrounded by strong women and I am a strong supporter of women empowerment. It reflects in the female characters I create.
I write about what I know and what is important to me in my community with the aim of changing it for the better in my small way.Since September 2016, I have started my own Blog for personal development and influencing others. I post an article on this Blog regularly once a week and its link is:www.apagefrommunakusbook.wordpress.com.Its theme is: Learning is a lifetime job.It is both educational and inspiring.
I take this Blog as one way of connecting with readers and increasing my visibility
As the demands on my time reduce, I want to focus on my writing and become an exceptional writer. The literary world has given me so much joy that I feel I should give back to it.
