"Follow your inner moonlight; don't hide the madness."
A native of Nyeri County, Thomas Muriuki is an incurable romantic, a literature enthusiast, and a sworn connoisseur of poetry.
In February of 2019 he signed for publishing with Tree District Books!
At present he's working on the next chapbooks in the Pinnacle of Pleasure series, which features a collection of romantic and erotic poetry, Book 2 of the Dark Shade Trilogy (a fanfiction series, children's chapter book), and his debut romance novel whose working title is "Broken Times"
His love for writing dates back to his teenage years. However, his love for poetry and inspiration for The pinnacle of Pleasure-Volume 1, was triggered by two appearances, in which he wrote and presented two inspirational and two love poems, for a students’ association at Kenyatta University.
Thomas’ love for poetry, writing and performing continued to intensify and made him come alive through his passion for words. He admits that the works of Plato, especially in The Phaedrus, The Ion and The Symposium are largely to blame for his unending inspiration.
In the book, Philosophies of Art & Beauty, edited by Albert Hofstadter and Richard Kuhns, these selected readings in aesthetics, from Plato to Heidegger introduced Muriuki to the great literary artists.
When he is not writing, he’s usually on a nature walk, nurturing friendships or, buried somewhere reading a great book! Also, he’s fallen so deep in love with science and is pursuing studies in Microbiology.
