Welcome to my official website. Take a look through the site to find everything from my latest work to past projects. I am an award-winning K-5 Engineering teacher and a Ghanaian-American writer. I didn't see myself in the classroom or the stories I read as a child. Now, I teach classes, facilitate workshops, and present keynote speeches using authentic artifacts and family photographs to inspire readers and students of all ages. My nonfiction picture books are rooted in family, history, heritage, art, travel, and culture.


How can you help us inform parents, educators, and community members?

  • Gifts! My books are the perfect inspirational gift for a baby shower, birthday present, school library, teacher appreciation day, holiday celebration, or a charitable donation. 

  • Write a positive online review! If you have finished reading, please leave a customer review with the bookseller or Goodreads. 

  • Library Requests! Recommend my books to your local libraries or request them on apps like Overdrive 

  • Word of mouth! Please tell your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors.

  • Social Media! Share a bookie (selfie with a book), family or classroom photo, or book-related projects on social media! Tag me! Include the hashtags #MyNameIsAnAddress or #MamasPortraits in your "public" posts to connect with the global community of readers. Or email your book-related photos and projects:

  • Please like, comment, share, or repost my social media posts. Tag a friend!
