A bit about myself first – I am an artist, I am a poet, I am a writer, I am a lover – practicing Interior Architecture Designing.  And on a small scale – furniture designing, though I would love to go bigger.  I used to write a lot back then, but with work and all, my time became tight.

I went on a holiday in April 2004 and took with me a few books by Maya Angelou and Iyanla Vanzant, where I did some soul searching. Which got me into writing – poems and later short stories – I haven’t looked back since then. I have a collection of poems, RHYTHM OF MY RHYME under my belt and a collection of short stories and poems, STAINS ON MY KHANGA about to be released. 

I have also completed a novella of which I am just as proud of – MANKA THE WOMAN-CHILD– I have my fingers crossed that I will get a publisher soon.  I am now busy with another novella – THE BOY – there is such a rush one gets when creating. 

More of my writes can be found at Sandra On AuthorsDen. You can always join as a reader and post your reviews or/and contact me.

I am an artist, I am a poet, I am a writer, I am a lover .

    @Peter: Yaani I have had that dream for years, Peter – to have such an establishment! I have my fingers crossed that it all works out and I realize my dream one day.

  10. Hi Sandra,

    The pleasure is mine to make your acquaintance and indeed we should stay in touch. Two Chagga blood sisters can rule the literature world and represent TZ accordingly…..

  11. Dear Sandra…am writing this past midnight as you had me hooked up on your site from the evening up to now….I have read lots of your stories from other sources such as African Writers and am about to go for my copy of Stains on my Khanga…your work is just beautiful. …you simply inspire me to write more since I have been scribbling every now and then and have a few pieces and I love it…your stories are just soo real ..the ones about chaggas though. .hilarious but I can relate to almost all them being a pure chagga myself. …I always see you at church and one of these days I will definitely have to talk to you. ….I will be so overjoyed if I get a chance to learn a few things about writing from you….please keep the good work coming. …

    • Anabahati, aksante sana!
      I enjoy writing a lot. Infact I express myself better with writing rather than talking. Through writing I ask myself questions, I vent out, nashushua (heee heee) and mostly I make sense of the senseless.
      So you write too? Good for you! Isn’t writing just not the best therapy ever? I have what I call a son/dad script on FB which I am actually thinking of copying here too. So welcome back – there will be more soon.
      Once you have bought and read STAINS, please do let me know what you think.
      Looking forward to formally meet you at church, Anabahati.
      Thanks once again and take care.

      • Dear Sandra…I have been reading the son/dad script on fb…what a stubborn son. ..!!I put lots in writing than I can vent out too…by the way i saw you at church yesterday but u know the usual church greetings I lost sight of you even before I could talk to you…iam definitely coming back to you after I feed my soul with STAINS…
