Storyteller at Heart
Born and raised on the barrier island of Fernandina Beach, FL, Mbinguni’s love of masterful storytelling developed from the influence of her grandparents. Her grandmother fostered in her a love of reading, films, and television at an early age, and her grandfather was a spirited storyteller. Her love of reading developed her curiosity about language. She is passionate about it and captivated by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. She is a thoughtful and tenacious author interested in telling the stories of her people with honesty, tenderness, and love. Looking for Hope is her debut novel.
