Kalenga Augustine Mulenga

Kalenga Augustine (K.A.) Mulenga loves writing children’s books! His mission is to write books that have an important life lesson in an easy yet fun way, thus giving parents a helping hand in teaching and nurturing their children. With colourful illustrations and a wide range of different and diverse characters, ranging from Whales to Leopards. Kalenga aims to inspire readers to do the right thing.

Kalenga lives in Johannesburg, South Africa, with his wife, his 2 daughters, his son and his 4 dogs (2 Labradors and 2 Maltese Crosses). He loves reading, and is an avid soccer fan.

Writing runs in his blood, as his late father was a journalist and the first black editor of the Zambia Daily Mail, and his late brother was a poet. Kalenga started writing when he was still in the 3rd Grade. His stories won a few competitions at his school, and winning made him a voracious reader. Reading just urged him to write more!

Fast-forward to 2020 and after an inspirational “a-ha” moment, he started writing again and to date has written 21 children’s picture books, has a middle-grade novel in the works, and a memoir waiting to be published.

Kalenga’s mission is to create stories which inspire and teach children important life lessons. He also wants to help parents to teach their children important life lessons. He wants his books to bring families and people together, for adults (teachers, parents, etc.) to enjoy the stories while reading to the children. For the children that can read on their own, to share his stories with their friends. He also wants to share his work, not just in South Africa, but all over the world, and would love for his stories to be translated into different languages, so that not only the English-speaking countries can enjoy and benefit from them, but the children of the world. He would like his books to help children with phonics and to get them in as many speech therapy practices as possible.

Finally, his mission is to make children happy, seeing the children enjoying his books is the greatest achievement of all!

Kalenga’s dream is to create an animated series based on the books, and though without a specific plan on how to do so at this stage, he is determined to make it happen!
