I’m Keleti Sanon. I’m a Author & Book Publisher.

I arrived from Africa with no common language, no family, and nowhere to go. Twenty years later, I am a college graduate two times over, a professional aircraft mechanic, and a man with a passion for bringing Africans and African-Americans closer together. In my first published work, Another Chance Maybe the Last, I explore the complex issues and strained relationships between people of the African diaspora and offer hope and solutions for restoration.
In my second published work, The Adventures of Bamo, readers meet fictional characters, Diaka and Bamo Toure. The mother and son’s story begins in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, and then takes readers on an immersive journey through small village life in Oume, Africa to urban life in the United States.
Although not autobiographical, Bamo’s story is not much different from my own. I arrived in the United States with nothing but my dreams. After many difficult years in Harlem, New York, I registered for a G.E.D program. After which, I failed the college entrance exam twice before finally passing. I started college in January of 1994 and graduated from the College of Aeronautics at LaGuardia Airport, in Queens, New York. In 1997, I became a federal, licensed, aircraft mechanic and began my career with United Airlines.

I believe my passion for writing African fiction and non-fiction stemmed from childhood. Storytelling is a rich part of my culture. I hope to entertain and educate readers through complex characters and interesting stories that portray a realistic and hopeful journey.  I’ve been told offering hope is my special gift. I look forward to sharing many books with readers and pray Mother Africa comes alive through my writing, not just for African readers, but for readers from around the world who desire to know about my beautiful homeland, it’s people, and culture. I encourage all to visit the continent. It’s an exciting experience you won’t soon forget.

God Bless!

My Latest Book

Another Chance, Maybe The Last

Another Chance, Maybe The Last is an insightful book that shares some of the common beliefs and misconceptions among Africans and African-Americans. It not only tells of the history of Africa but gives insight into the journey from Africa to the U.S. and helps encourage our youth to share the truth about our connection.

Through the pages of this book, I introduce you to the importance of embracing your culture, your heritage in order to develop your true identity and to connect from which you came.

It is true that no man is an island. We do not exist just within ourselves. We are made up of those who came before us. The history of our existence is vital to understanding how we fit in the world and how we fit with another. Another Chance, Maybe The Last illustrates Africa’s history, the painful journey of slavery, the ramifications of slavery, and how parts of our history has disconnected us – from ourselves, from our people, and from our country.

To fully embrace who we are as a people, we need to KNOW one another as a people, and that’s a main purpose behind the creations of this book. It is important for my African American cousins to know about the culture of Africa – how we value family, relationship, children, education, finances, and more.

What began in tragedy has become a great triumph of love, family, and purpose.

Bamo Toure’s story began before he was born. The heart and hopes of Diaka, his mother, were shattered when a romance ended in a cruel dismissal. Alone and pregnant, Diaka is disowned by her father. After spiraling into a deep depression, she travels from the metropolitan city of Abidjan to the rural village of Oume where she finds her calling as a teacher. Then tragedy strikes…

Though Bamo loses his mother at an early age, her legacy continues, and the love for Bamo, son of Diaka, is demonstrated over his childhood as he moves from home to home, living with many mothers, proving the African adage, “It takes a village to raise a child.”

After growing up in Oume, Bamo leaves the Ivory Coast to continue his education in the United States. An unlikely friendship, social media fame, and the realization of his purpose brings Bamo back to Oume with resources to help the village he loves so much. The Adventures of Bamo is an emotional novel about the strength of the human spirit and the undeniable power of purpose.
