Today’s ‘Spotlight on the Author’ talks about an intelligent, interesting man who is passionate about what he believes in. He also happens to be a friend and a talented author, he is Kenneth Mugi.
I first met Kenneth when he turned up at my writer’s group one Sunday. He walked in with his bag slung over his shoulder, said hello in his mild mannered Canadian accent, then pushed his glasses up to the bridge of his nose with a single finger (just like Clark Kent) and sat down with the group.
In a way Kenneth is a Super Hero himself. He has the ability to intelligently dissect prose and provide insightful feedback. He has a friendly smile and a laid back attitude, his wit is sharp and his imagination is mind blowing. But what is even more impressive is the fact that he turned up in the first place, because Kenneth suffers from social anxiety.
I am truly honoured to say that Kenneth is my friend. His writing is original and carries the influence of his life experiences. He has worked with at-risk adults, lived in several countries, and always talks about how amazing his wife, Aiko is.
