Sarah has the key to writing

WE MAY HAVE aspired to write a few books and host our own exclusive book release events when we were younger, but when we woke up, we grew up and well, those dreams slowly started to disappear.

Not so, as Sarah Kittoe, an exceptional 11-year-old author, captivates readers once again with her latest release, Ama and the Lost Key.

The new book, which was released at her book launch event at Croydon Library last month, marks her fourth foray into the world of storytelling, following the success of her first three books: The Friendship Club, Sarah Kittoe’s Coloring Book and Lindsey and the Blue Fox.

In Ama and the Lost Key, Kittoe takes the reader on an exciting journey beneath the dry, orange, dusty sands of Ghana, where a glowing key is discovered lost in the shadows.

The story follows Ama, a young and adventurous girl with love and fire in her heart, as she searches for the secrets of this mysterious key.

The key promises unimaginable wealth and has the potential to change Ama’s life forever. But as she delves deeper into the mystery, Ama learns valuable lessons about the power of unity in the land of gold.

Kittoe was born with a natural talent for storytelling and has been weaving enchanting stories from an early age.

Supported by her wonderful parents Nozipho and Albert who encourage her to achieve her dreams and guided by Daniella Blechner, Book Journey Mentor and founder of Conscious Dreams Publishing, and by her younger sister Mary who encourages her, Kittoe has a great team around her . She continues to inspire with her creativity and ambition.

In addition to her literary pursuits, Kittoe is deeply involved in her community, demonstrating a heart-warming spirit of compassion and altruism.

All the money she makes from selling her books goes to charities such as Centrepoint and the Wednesday Club of West Croydon Methodist Church, which help homeless people in Croydon.

Despite her young age, Kittoe has already made significant progress in both her literary career and her philanthropic endeavors. In addition to writing compelling stories, she has started a fundraising initiative to refurbish the library at St. Paul’s Basic School in Tema, Ghana.

Through her actions, Kittoe exemplifies the power of youth and the importance of giving back to the community.

As she continues to make her mark on the literary world, she stands as an inspirational figure for aspiring authors and young individuals everywhere.

“I am a creative and ambitious young black girl with many ideas about my future,” says Kittoe.

“I am interested in arts and crafts, design, music, gymnastics, sports and food.”

Her dedication to her craft, combined with her relentless commitment to making a positive impact, serves as a beacon of hope and inspiration for future generations.
