BRUCE HOBSON writes a series of animal fables as Mwenye Hadithi (pronounced m-when-yay hadee thee).
WORKS IN PROGRESS
The new Hadithi story Sleepy Cheetah was published in 2016.
Watch out for The Wild Fluffalump in 2017, the story that makes baby elephants irresistably cuddly! I wrote this for Tusk Trust, to make elephants more huggable for future generations. Find a Selfie of him on this site somewhere!
Now my daughter is grown up, I experiment with adventure stories and similar yarns for an older age-group. A teenage adventure that takes a group of kids out of their cold English school and sets them in a mysterious adventure on the sunnier wilder shores of Zanzibar and its deserted island coast is looking for a publisher.
There are also scripts for various children’s animation projects in the works.
The series Tinga Tinga Tales recently exploded onto the screens of younger viewers.
I scripted some 25 episodes of this children’s animation project, currently entertaining on BBC and Disney channels.
With a lifetime of worldwide surfing adventures under my belt, my main work in progress might be described as `Zen and the art of surfing as a travel romance`. It is hard to pin down, but hugely entertaining. Every time I read what I have written so far (now on about the 50th re-reading) I still laugh out loud all the time. I hope my readers will too. I only intend to write one great and funny novel that will resonate with readers forever, and Making Waves is it.
