"Absorbing, thoughtful and a great look at an almost unknown culture wrapped in an original story." -author Cave Canem.
Praise for Loreless:
"A great story about about a transformational event in a man's life that leads him to his roots. Events like this are not able to be measured by scientific instruments, but I don't think that diminishes it's significance. Thank you."
"I loved this story and really like all its meanings and stories. Also, I could see this as inspirational as well, as it might persuade others to go back to their own roots! Overall this story was definitely worth reading! Awesome job!"
"This definitely deserves more recognition."
"Your character, Billy, is a reflection of the struggles that many people face. Often we will hit rock bottom, and for those that have the determination to question our actions and turn those actions into positives, that is where salvation can be realized. No, not everyone will experience Billy's path. But, there are many who have similar experiences and are making the same choices as Billy.
"Though Billy is fictitious, I'm rooting for him. Well done!"
From the Author
At the time I was also interested in making music and a friend gave me a tip: anything you write you can sing, you only need a guitar. I taught myself a few basic chords, took my poem and put it to music. It became the first song I ever wrote.
Music was just a tool to convey the words.
At some stage I decided to go a step further and write a musical. I made several attempts at writing the musical but it never really came together. The story behind the musical, though, never left me. About four years ago I decided to take the plunge and write something more substantial than a poem or a lyric. I decided to write a novel.
It became my debut novel Loreless.
Completing Loreless encouraged me to continue writing.
