I am Fredua-Agyeman Nana from Ghana. I have lived in Suhum a town about eighty kilometres from the capital, Accra, for all the twenty-five years I have been in this world with the exception of the time I spent pursuing higher learning. I attended Star of Suhum International School from kindergarten to the Junior Secondary School and continued to Adisadel College, in Cape Coast, to read science—a continuation that began the break in my long stay in Suhum. From there I moved to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, to study Agriculture.

I was born in Kampala, Uganda in 1969. I studied theology at St. Paul’s in Khartoum and now work as a Catholic priest in Kordofan and Darfur. I have been writing poetry since my school days.

My works remained unpublished in book form: The Bone of My Heart (Poetry Anthology), Dance of Memories (Novel), Talking Things (African Proverbs), Jimmy’s Neighborhood (Children’s Story), Legs of Lies (Short Stories) yet to be completed.
