Stacey Fru, Author at 7

It was truly an enchanting and inspiring encounter. Last month I met with this 10 year old, multiple award winning Cameroonian author, Stacey Fru, who lives in South Africa. She wrote her first two books, Bob and the Snake and Smelly Cats, at the age of 7. 

Her illustrated children's books takes the reader into her imaginative world from which they exit with some precious moral lessons.

As she pursues her writing career, Stacey, has a number of other projects going. As a motivational speaker and online TV host she is touring South African colleges and universities, inspiring the young and the old alike.

Beau-Bernard Fonka Mutta met with the prodigy in her parent’s Johannesburg residence. Enjoy this enchanting meeting.
