About Valerie

soon-to-be novelist

I am a storyteller, a writer and soon-to-be novelist (I’m working on it).

Life is full of wonder. Life is beautiful. I love the uncertainty that comes with it. The ups and downs of living -its high points and low moments, the good times and the bad. I love it all. What I love even more, is writing about it!

I enjoy mentoring girls and young women. Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing women rocking in whatever they pursue.

My writing however, is in most cases unisex. There is a little something for everyone on all matters lifestyle. I tell both fictional and nonfictional stories reflecting real issues that take place in life. I also write articles on topics that sometimes fascinate me when I read, listen to TEDTalks (which I do a lot) and sometimes from the news. Occasionally I also try my hand at poetry.

My most passionate topic areas include fulfilling my life goals (fighting procrastination), my relationship with money,  and self love (because no one else will know how you expect to be treated if you don’t treat yourself right). And then there’s travel, food, fashion and books.

I run an online bookstore called Tusomebooks.com which means Let’s Read in Swahili, a language spoken in Eastern Africa.

I hold a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree (BBA) from the University of Winnipeg.

Welcome to my world.
