Read full description of the books:
Life is hard for ten-year-old Safiyah in the Kibera slum outside Nairobi. Too poor to go to school, she makes a meager living for herself and her grandmother Cucu by selling things she finds at the garbage dump. After using scavenged paper to fix up the inside of the hut, Safiyah starts a mural on the outside. As word of the paper house spreads, Safiyah begins to take pride in her creation. When Cucu collapses after a fire, Safiyah stays at the hospital to help care for her grandmother. While Safiyah is away, her friend Pendo works on the mural, which upsets Safiyah. But when Pendo attracts media attention to the paper house, Safiyah and her grandmother are given a chance of a better life.

Read information about the authorAfter writing for adults for more than 20 years, I turned to writing for younger readers in 2007. My first children's book, MEETING MISS 405 was published by Orca Book Publishers in Fall, 2008. It was recently awarded top place in the BC Choclate Lily Children's Choice Award.
My second Young Reader entitled THE BALLAD OF KNUCKLES McGRAW came out in April 2010 and was followed in October by SILVER RAIN. My first teen novel BEYOND REPAIR was published in April 2011, and will be followed by THE WRONG BUS (Orca Echoes) and PAPER HOUSE (Oorca Young Reader), both in spring 2012.
My how-to book '101 - and more - Writing Exercises to Get You Started & Keep You Going' is used by writing teachers, students, and writers.
